Excel Food Journal Template
Maybe you want a tracker that does a little more work for you. If so, that’s where the final template can help. This MS Excel worksheet has several useful features.
Title, day and date sections label the top of the sheet. Along with the column headers, these items will remain across the top even when you scroll down the page, as the panes are “frozen."
The journal is in table format with headings including time, feeling and description, enabling you to record your emotional state and spot times of day that you may struggle more. In fact, the Feeling column includes a dropdown list, so when you click in a cell in that column you can choose an option, such as Hungry, Stressed or Tired.
Other columns include calories, carbs, fat, protein and more. You can change any or all of these to suit your needs. Enter your goals for each category in the cells in the Daily Goals row. Excel updates your totals automatically in the Daily Totals row.
Whether you print a journal and take it to go or prefer to sit down and type in your information, tracking your food can help you reach your health and weight loss goals.
