Log your meals
Keeping food records is about as fun as going to a mall the day before Christmas. But there’s a reason for doing it: Food logs help you (and your dietitian) see what and how much you’re eating, as well as certain patterns to your eating, and how your food intake might be affecting your blood sugars. When you really take a look at your logs, you can gain some serious insight into your food intake and then think about what you might need to do to make improvements. Hate logging on paper? Try an app, like MyFitnessPal or MyNetDiary.
