I came up with the idea to establish three daily nutritional commitments (DNCs) from Jill Coleman. I like her approach and philosophy to keep things simple and sustainable. At the time I couldn't come up with three DNCs.
I've been thinking about the third commitment for a few days. This morning it dawned on me that my third commitment should be maintaining my daily food journal. Whether or like it or not, I do so much better when I keep a record of what I eat. This practice helps me to stay aware and conscious. There are days I have no idea how little or much I've eaten until I complete my food journal.
I also like the fact that these commitments are not set in stone. I can change them at will. For now, I think I will set with:
1. Eating breakfast
2. Eating protein with eat meal
3. Completing my food journal
Number three is also going to help me with my weight loss goals. I need to do a better job of tracking my macros. I do not eat nearly enough protein on some days.
