Food Log App?

Anyone use a food log app?  There are several out there but would like to hear if anyone uses one in particular (don't want to spend $1.99 if it's a total waste). My celiac daughter is having some ups and downs and I want to try and track her foods so we can look for triggers and I figure it will help when we go for her next appointment in December.  I figure an app might be a fun way to get her involved in the process.

I think its free and its really easy to use.  I used this app early in my diagnosis to set a weight goal and a caloric intake goal to correspond.  You can track your food, your weight, your various nutrients per day, week, month, and track calories burned per exercise so you know how to adjust your intake depending on your goal.

 

Check it out!

I use mysymptoms food diary on the i-phone.  I can't remember if I paid for it or if it was free.  It's pretty easy to use and is easily customizable.  You can enter your food daily, along with symptoms of issues - headache, bloating,etc.  It will also track your bowel movements using the Bristol scale.  You can add data about sleep, exercise, medicine, the environment, etc.  It also has a feature where it tries to match your symptoms with your food intake using mathmatical algorithms.  And you can e-mail your food journal to yourself or someone else.

 

My only real issue with it is you have to enter each ingredient.  You can create meals so that if you eat the same thing twice, you don't have to enter everything again.  For instance, if you're having spaghetti, you have to input tomatoes, ground beef, garlic, rice pasta, etc.  You can save those ingredients as a meal called "Spaghetti," so that if you eat leftovers the next day you don't have to enter everything all over again.  But the first time you have to make a point of entering each ingredient.  It can be a bit of a pain for something with a lot of ingredients.
