Ask Dr. Samantha: Food Tracking Edition

One of the most common things I investigate is how my patients and clients are fueling their bodies. After all, what we eat literally becomes who we are. Sometimes my they come to me saying they want to make dietary changes. And sometimes they come to me saying they are already eating very well, thank you and that they don’t need to address this.

But, thanks to 20 years of working with humans, I like to put this patient assumption to the test by asking each person to track their food…the truth is that most people aren’t eating anywhere near as healthfully as they think they are. If that’s ok with them…great. But most often people do want to eat more healthfully. And there is only one way to find out. Tracking.

And I get it, most people think it’s a mammoth pain in the ass to track your food. But it’s also just that important! In this Ask Dr. Samantha Video I go over three systems that will help even the busiest of people track their food, as well as why I think it’s one of the best things you can do for your overall health.

Let me know if you have any more ask Dr. Samantha questions about health or wellness — find me on social @DrSamanthaND or use the form here!
