Food Diary 16th January 2017

Earlier today, I went to see a chiropractor, as I'd fallen off my mountain bike last weekend. He fixed a number of issues, however, 2 of them were diet related:

  • Potentially too many nuts in my diet
  • Not enough manganese in my diet, due to an injured AC ligament, a result of the mountain bike fall

As a result, I've decided to write a food diary for a week, to monitor what I'm was eating.

The key to writing a food diary is to be honest with yourself about what you're eating. If you're not honest, it's only yourself that you're cheating.
