Food Makeover- Part 1           

In an old issue of Women’s Health from May 2008, they followed 3 women who used food journals to tract their eating habits honestly.

            Ragni, described as a 26-year-old bar-food addict, had a weight loss goal of 22 points. She speaks of the difficulty waking up on a Friday morning to work out because she was out late the night before partying with friends. Her eating habits in general are poor. She hits the salad bar loading her bowl with cheese, croûtons, and ranch dressing. She’d have a healthier lunch with a lean meat deli sandwich on whole wheat with spinach leaves. She then wouldn’t have that afternoon crash (which comes from insulin crashing as well as alcohol burn off, and a lack of sleep kicking in).

The reality is she needs to redistribute her daily calories to create a better balance of food throughout her day, instead of binge eating and drinking hard every night. As a 26 year old, it doesn’t seem as bad, but if weight loss is your goal, priorities have to be established.

Come back tomorrow to hear about Jenny, the comfort food craver.
