It needs only to be something that isaccessible and comfortable to the individual who is creating the diary. Individuals do not need towrite down everything in the journal right, as they are getting ready to eat.

Lastly, it is important to include what was happening when the individual decided toeat. Sometimes the individual will be bored or sad, depressed or angry. Individuals can eat fordifferent reasons and by writing down what people were feeling when they eat, the patterns of theindividual when it comes to eating can be more easily identified over a period of time.Patterns can take time to appear, so individuals who are keeping a food diary may need to bepatient in order to allow the dieter enough time to see the patterns immerge. 8.
