Once you have your log, get two highlighters.  In one color, go through and highlight healthy foods. In another color, highlight unhealthy foods.  Now you can visually see how much of each kind of food you eat, and if there are any patters.  For example, do you eat unhealthy food at night during TV snacking?  Do you usually have a healthy breakfast?  These patterns will make it easier to organize your essay.
