By keeping a 'nutrition diary' daily, we will be able to analyze our good/bad eating habits. Start with a 'normal' week (not holidays, etc), and write down everything you put into your mouth...sodas, sweet iced tea, snacks...etc.(I mean EVERYTHING). At the end of the week check the total red-meats, poultry, breads, dairy fats (milk, butter, ice cream), fresh vegetables, etc. we have consumed. Is there a bad-habit trend we need to correct? Do so now...start with buying less of the 'bad', and more of the 'good' when grocery shopping. Who knows, we may be rewarded with lower cholesterol and weight loss!
