Food and Physical Activity Trackers
My Food Tracker
Keep track of everything you eat and drink using our tracker below. After a few weeks, review it to see where extra calories are coming from in your diet. Are they coming from the samples you try at the grocery store? Or the snacking you do in front of the TV?
Use this chart to keep track of what and how much you are eating. The American Diabetes Association also has a free online tool called MyFoodAdvisor, which is another way to track your calories and carbohydrates throughout the day to see if you are reaching your goals.
My Physical Activity Tracker
Our physical activity tracker can be helpful in a similar way. As you track your activity, look for patterns. How often are you physically active? Is there a time of day when you have the most energy for activity? Is there a way to add more activity into your routine?
Think of ways to incorporate more physical activity into each day and use this chart to keep track of your progress.
You can use the information from your trackers to build your weight loss plan. In fact, continuing to track your food and physical activity may be an important tool to help you stay motivated.
