NUTRITION JOURNALS ARE GREAT, but they aren’t always great all the time!
They should be used to check-in, fine-tune and create accountability and awareness of what you are eating and how you can change that to serve your goals more effectively. They shouldn’t become a crutch or an obsession that stops you from being able to learn about food and listen to your body. They especially shouldn’t be relied upon if they are driving obsessive patterns around food, especially if these create guilt, blame and shame. If you notice that you are becoming overly reliant on it, try taking a break and releasing the attachment to it.
