Reverse Diabetes: The Food Diary
The Reverse Diabetes Food Diary gives you a bird's-eye view of your diet and eating habits to track your successes and opportunities for growth.
The better you pay attention to what—and when!—you’re eating, the better your chances will be to manage the way you feel. This Reverse Diabetes Food Diary, which accompanies the latest edition of the Reader’s Digest Reverse Diabetes book, gives you a bird’s-eye view of your diet so you can mindfully start to track your cravings, the moments it’s tough to stay disciplined, and the strategies that helped you make healthy choices.
During the Reverse Diabetes 12-Week Challenge, use this Food Diary to record what you eat and drink, including the time you eat it and the circumstances (such as “dinner with the kids” or “popcorn at the movies”).
At the end of the week, take a look back to note any patterns in your eating habits: Do you snack before bed? Crack open a soda a few times a day? Opt for takeout over home cooking? With your diet habits on paper, you’ll be better able to spot simple ways you can keep improving your choices to manage your blood sugar, insulin, weight, and more.
