Help With Food Logs
Posted 31 January 2011 - 06:51 PM
I'd like to know how everyone is logging their food. I mean, how is it organized? What info should be recorded etc...
Thanks in advance to the help. I am feeling well now, but have been sick for the last few weeks without a known cause. This could really help me and hopefully others our in the future.
If we can come up with great ideas maybe I can compile them into a sample page and load it as a pdf for others to print and use.

Anytime I try to use electronic options, I get lazy because there's a barrier between me and the food log. I have to turn on the computer, log into the software, deal with the format that the log requires , etc. It's just easiest for me to keep a little notebook and do it by hand.
For a while I tried carrying the log around with me and log as soon as I ate, but I kept forgetting to do it and then I felt like I was doing things wrong... I just needed something really simple that I could remember to do.

Have known something was "wrong" for most of my adult life and learned to live with bloating/constipation and fatigue.
Went to many doctors for help without success.
Got confirmation from Enterolabs that I was gluten sensitive in Dec. 20009

It takes practice, but eventually you'll find the system that works well for you. It can turn into a fine science.

I also keep a daily log of bowel movements - how many, consistency, etc. to give me an idea of what I might have ate the day before or a few days before.
