Session 7: Tracking Your Food

Adaptations to this session include conducting a review in the session of serving sizes based on everyday objects rather than just providing information in a handout. This session also includes a simplified food tracking tool that focuses on the most common calorically dense foods. Information on food labels was adapted to match common South African labeling practices. Lastly, all participants are asked to track their food intake every day until the next session.

In this session participants learn more about becoming active. The session begins with a values exercise so that participants can reflect on their progress and further goals in relation to their values. The need to reach a moderately vigorous level of exercise is explained along with the “talk test” method of judging the appropriate level of vigor.

The male role model character is used in an example of how to make gradual changes to one’s daily routine to increase physical activity. Participants learn the importance of activity that builds muscle and learn how to gradually increase intensity by counting and gradually increasing exercise repetitions. Some exercises are conducted in the group to demonstrate.
