Photographing food for a healthy lifestyle?

Inspired by something someone said at work about photographing everything you eat I’ve decided to keep a food diary in this way (starting with a week and seeing how it goes). I feel that this will help me to realise just how much crap I’m eating, and make me think twice before having that second or third cookie.


We also likened it to what they do in the weightloss TV shows, where they take all the food a person has eaten in a week and dump it on a table. I imagine looking through my photographs is going to be something like that!

My CC blog for yesterday is up here: n/307162.html

I don’t know how successful it will be, but it can’t hurt. More awareness of what one is eating can only be a good thing. I know I tend to mindlessly eat, not enjoy my food and not realise how much I’ve actually eaten. Seeing is believing they say!
