Printable Food Diaries

Printable food diaries are a great way for dieters to track their daily caloric intake. Research tells us that in order to lose one pound of body weight per week you need to slash your daily caloric intake by 500 calories. Your first job is to establish how many calories on average you are taking in each day. That’s where printable food diaries can help. For each day of the week, write down everything that you put in your body regardless of how small. One bite of a jelly donut may seem pretty insignificant but may contain as much as 100 calories. Most of your food should have nutritional values printed right on the label. For those food such as fruits and vegetables that don’t come with nutritional labels you should use the USDA National Nutrient Database as a reference.
