balanced diet worksheet

    Default balanced diet worksheet

    I'm wondering if there are any worksheets out there, like a pdf that I can
    dl & print (for example), that is kind of a combination of checklist and
    calorie counter. The checklist would be what kinds of food you ate during
    the day, and the calorie counter, well, duh. Maybe there would be a spot to
    track your consumption of sodium, sat. fat, etc.

    I've been sitting here thinking about putting something together like this,
    but it must be that somebody's already done it.

    I use the free online version but you can purchase a downloadable program.
    I'm not sure what the differences are between the two.

    I have a basic Excel thing in my online briefcase.
    You're welcome to download it if you'd like; however,
    be aware that it's very basic. It's for people who
    want to do an intuitive, portion control kind of thing.
    It's more about thoughts, feelings and hunger levels
    than consumption statistics.

    There's another, much better in my opinion, software
    program there that you can download. It's called
    "Diet and Exercise Assistant." It's what I use to
    track my diet. It doesn't track sodium, but it's good
    for calories, macronutrients (fat, carbohydrate, protein)
    water, exercise, bodyweight, measurements, etc.
    One way to use it is to keep a simple written list of
    what you ate, and then when it's convenient you can
    enter the data into the program. Once you get used to
    it, it only takes a few minutes each day. And after
    awhile the data it provides will help you to learn
    and apply simple portion control. In other words,
    in time you might be able to do just as well without
    it. The Excel worksheet can be a step in that direction.
    It focuses you on thinking about each eating experience
    and counting portions as fist sized units. Eventually
    it all becomes intuitive in that some number of fist sized
    units over some number of meals per day is all there is to it.

    Here's a link to where those files are located:

    If you're just starting out, there are a couple of other
    useful files there as well: A very good micronutrient
    chart that takes the guesswork out of early stage
    supplementation, and a basic metabolic typing test that
    can give you an idea of which of the three basic diet
    types (low fat, low carb, or moderate carb) might be
    the best place for you as a unique individual to start.

    Good luck.
