This chapter (Session 2) discusses the importance of self-monitoring to gain awareness of calorie intake and to recognize patterns in eating behavior. Clients are provided with information on how to self-monitor food intake, including recording type of food, serving size, method of preparation, and time of eating. Strategies for beginning to reduce calories are discussed, such as limiting high-calorie foods in the environment, eating regular meals, and planning meals in advance. The idea of achieving a negative energy balance is introduced, meaning that in order to lose weight, clients must expend a greater amount of energy than they consume in the form of calories.
