My Food Journal – June 2013

by | Jun 14, 2013 | Blog, Health

I’ve been going over my client’s food journals for years, so once in a while I think it’s only fair to show everyone what I’m eating!  Below is how a typical week of eating would look for me.  The main meals change weekly to keep things interesting, so keep in mind I don’t eat quinoa only!  On deck for next week is egg salad wraps and spaghetti squash.

With all of the food journals I’ve looked at over the years, the two biggest mistakes I see most people make is: 1). They’re not eating enough, and, 2). The quality of the food is weak.

For lasting success, you need to eat often, eat clean, and make sure you’re taking in enough calories for your caloric needs.
