Food Journal – Free Download

June 26th, 2009

theprojectgirl.com-foodjournalThis week my friend Kristy & I started a “boot camp” of sorts. Kristy was planning on starting a food journal and so I thought I would join in. I have read that keeping a food journal can really help with weightloss. So I put together this cute template. Its a 1 week journal with spots for 3 meals and 3 snacks — also known as 6 small meals a day. It also has a spot for counting water. I like it because its just simple and straightforward. Also with a whole week view, there is a bit of accountability for what you’ve eaten over the course of a week! Happy food journaling!

Download my food journal and enjoy (for personal use only ). Please tell your friends to come visit the site and download their own journal. I would love a comment if you do download!

    This is a very cute template for food tracking. I use a small moleskin notebook to track my food – as I am currently on a medically supervised weight loss program it was a necessity to come up with something portable for me. I may end up using your template once I am eating out of the box foods again (if anyone has ever done the HMR program you know what I mean). Thanks for sharing this:)

    I will be linking to this on my next entry on my blog;o)

    Thanks for such a cute way to keep a food journal. It makes something you should do, but don’t really want to do much more pleasant!

  3. Thank you for sharing this. This is exactly what I have been looking for to help my Mom keep track of her low cholesterol diet efforts.
    I am going to print some and put them in a binder for her along with the diet sheets from her dietician.

    I made one but yours are much, much nicer!
    I have lost over 80lbs myself and keeping a food journal is one of the things I did religiously.
    Thanks again!

    I’ve been a lurker for a while, but I just posted about the food journal on my blog, fully credited to you of course, so thought I should comment too. I LOVE this. Finding something functional and pretty is usually so hard. I love all your downloads Jen, they make me want to be more organised, and I don’t need to hide my planners away like I used to cause they weren’t nice to look at, which meant I never used them!

  16. Kim says:

    Thank you for doing this. I have to now do a food journal and to buy one is expensive. They are full of things I don’t need. This template is perfect. Thank you.

  17. Mesha says:

    Love, love, love it! I looked and looked for a weekly, simply laid out journal and found it on your site. Thanks for your efforts. This makes it much easier!

  20. Erin says:

    GREAT concept! I am going to start using it tomorrow. All other food journals I have researched are much lengthier and use up quite a bit of paper. The short and sweet setup is crucial in order for me to stick with it. Thank you! :)

  21. Bonita says:

    thanks for sharing!

  45. Tonya says:

    Thank you so much for such a wonderful food journal! I have a very serious illness that requires me to keep track of all I eat. I searched the web and this one I loved best. Thanks so much for the freebie!!

  46. Kristina says:

    Thank you, Jen, for taking the time to make a template for free! I have one week filled out thus far. It was great to become more aware of how often I would unconsciously pop something into my mouth. It was also helpful to look back on what I had eaten/done to promote a deep restful sleep one night. I just wish there was more room to fill in the type/amount of exercise done and how I felt that day (usually a product of the previous day’s intake and activity). But that’s asking a lot from an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper!

  47. Mia says:

    Wow thanks so much for this. My mom and I are starting our separate diet programs together and we’ve put together a diet binder to help us keep track and log our weights. I will definitely be adding a few of these to our logs. Thank you for creating such a simple template.
