Daily Food Journal
Posted 30 November 2004 - 12:38 PM
In coping with this, I've come to realize that I need to keep a food log or journal of what I eat everyday for awhile.
Does anyone know of a good one? What should I put in it? What info. is most helpful to keep up with? I can think of a million things that I would like to document, but just like my seizure-journal...some of it gets useless...and too much documenting may keep me from seeing the "big picture."
Does anyone have any suggestions? Does a company sell a journal for food/allergy logging? What do you keep in yours?
Much hugs to everyone...advice is appreciated! -Jules

I didn't even realize some of the changes until I went to sum up my own findings and draw conclusions for my doctor after a month of tracking my food. That is when everything finally started to fall into place.
I have yet to hear from the doc but that is OK with me too...as long as I know and she accepts that I have all these and is pleased that I am feeling better.

I called and ordered the daily diary from the IFFGD foundation site. (I just typed IFFGD in Google and it was the first site listed) It only cost $2.00....very cheap.
I'm also going to see about making table/spreadsheet on Word if need be.
I figure I'll document:
The day and time of meals
What I eat
When I show symptoms
I think the highlighting idea is good too! ...very useful for showing correlation.
Let me know if you all can think of anything else useful to document.
Much hugs. -Julie
