My Phone Food Diary

I keep a daily food diary memo on my phone to record my exercise, meals and snacks. This serves as as a summary of my daily food journal. I take notes if I have time. Later, I transfer my food diary memo information to my daily weight-loss journal.

Next is a sample food diary memo that I keeping on my phone. Each day, I update the day and time information. Throughout the day, I take simple notes about my exercise, food, drinks, and how my body is changing.

Each time I record a meal or a snack, I update the last two lines of the memo, which are a cumulative total of how many calories I have consumed and how many calories are remaining in my daily goal calorie intake limit.
