Reflect on Your Day

Circle Y for Yes and N for No.

 

 

  • Did you eat something today only because of habit? Y / N
  • Did you skip any meals today? Y / N
  • Did you go longer than four to five hours without eating? Y / N
  • Did you eat too little in the morning? Y / N
  • Did you eat more at night than any other time? Y / N
  • Did you eat a lot of high-fat foods, such as whole dairy, fried foods, and desserts? Y / N
  • Did you eat the same foods as you do every other day? Y / N
  • Did you eat according to mood rather than hunger today? Y / N

If you answered yes to one or more questions, take some time to plan how you can avoid these problems in the future.
