Step 3: Observe.
You may notice you have a minor inflammatory reaction to certain foods, although it may not qualify as a ‘food allergy,’ per say.
Examples of this may include puffy eyes, cheeks, or missing definition around bony prominences (i.e. love handles) the day after eating a particular food.
Look at belly bloat too!
Note these results in your diary.
You will quickly learn which foods work for you, you will avoid them and notice your fat loss regulates and even increase.
Less systemic inflammation will help fat loss AND reduce your chances of many diseases and conditions.

2. Keep a Food Journal
Write down everything that goes into your mouth. Most people are surprised to see how much they actually eat. It isn’t until you write it down that you began to realize the cause and effect of what you are putting into your body.
Choose 3 days that represent your normal routine. So, maybe a busy work day, a rest day and a social day. Note down when and where you eat, how hungry you feel (1-10), your mood, how happy you feel (1-10).
You’ll realise that you often eat for many reasons other than hunger. You may realise you don’t balanced meals ver often. You might notice that you eat badly when you miss a meal.
Try it, you’ll learn a lot about your eating habits, be able to plan better and avoid mistakes in the future.
