The journal can give you a sense of how often you are eating processed foods without focusing on calories or specific measurements.
Most people don’t know how many calories they need and how to eat in that range. One shouldn’t obsess over calories, but when transition to a whole food diet the increased level of fiber can trick people into eating less than they need to. This is great for weight loss but bad for curbing processed food cravings and sticking with a whole food diet in the long term.
