Food Journal Template

The Food Journal template is for capturing the current state (what you eat today). This may seem like a step you can skip, afterall don't you already know what you eat? But don't skip it. You will be suprised at what you eat and the frequency with which you eat it.

Also, when we start thinking about target state it will be helpful to have a good size sample from which to draw inspiration.
