Nobody. And I mean nobody, likes to keep a food journal. It’s time consuming, and requires you to face up in a big way to what, how much and when you eat. But, if you really want to improve your diet, it’s a terrific tool and worth the temporary discomfort. Think of it as growing-conscious pains. What I tell people is to remember that it’s not forever, but to take a few days, particularly if you are going to work with a nutritionist, and dive in.
