Location and Companions
Recording where you eat and with whom can help you identify factors that may be influencing how you eat. Do you often eat too much when watching TV? When is the last time you actually ate at the kitchen or dining table? Who was there when you ate too much? Do you find you eat more when you're socializing with friends? You may find you eat less if you take the time to set the table and eat while doing nothing else. If you over-eat in social situations, you may need to find non-food activities to do with friends.
