Are You Keeping a Food Log?

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

In my book I stress the importance of keeping a food log while you embark on The Engine 2 Diet. It creates a sense of accountability to yourself and it helps you to understand the relationship you have with food.  Below I have randomly chosen several food logs from people who are currently doing the 28 days. I want you to see what different food logs look like and how fun they can be. If you are doing the E2D, get after it and start that food log today!!!!
