Food and Mood Diary
It can be useful to maintain a food and mood diary for one month detailing how much fat you eat and how you were feeling at the time. Looking back at this may help you to identify what is the best level you should aim for and any triggers for eating fat.

Recognising patterns in your behaviour can help you to take steps to avoid repeating the same thing. Only you will know what will work for you.
