Sometimes, the only way to break long-held beliefs is a death by a thousand cuts. Or in the case of my eating habits, a thousand meals.

I love food and I try to have a healthy diet but I also know I fail on a regular basis.

Now, after logging and analyzing more than 1,000 of my meals, I have a much clearer picture of what I put into my body. And I’ve gained a better understanding of my relationship with food in general. I also have a plan to make changes and the data to measure my success or failure against going forward.

You don’t need to track a thousand meals to benefit from my discoveries. You can pick and choose from what I’ve learned and find a tool to log your meals for a much shorter period. Then you’ll be able to make data driven decisions about any changes you want to make to your food choices.
