Food Diary App?

I don't know if I have ever seen an app that tracks gluten. I feel like that is just done intuitively and through reading ingredient labels. I don't know if I would trust a database to be up to date either.

There's an app called NxtNutrio where you can mark off what you want to avoid, (ex: gluten, soy, etc.), and an area where you can claim a condition, (heart disease, celiac, etc.). It has a barcode reader and it tells you if the food you're considering for purchase is safe and why or why not. I relied heavily on it in the beginning and learned a lot about what to avoid. It doesn't keep track of what you're eating though.

Thanks, yes I found that one already. What I'm looking for is one that will help track everything I eat and drink as I begin meeting with my nutritionist. I haven't been diagnosed yet, so it will likely be a gradual change for me.

Hi Christina, and welcome to the forum! :)

 

If you are going to seek out testing related to gluten problems, most of the tests need you to be still consuming gluten in order to accurately work.  So you may want to speak to your doctor before you start to go gluten free.  But it doesn't hurt to start paying attention to labels now.  If you aren't going to go through a doctor for a diagnosis, just know that if you want a formal diagnosis in the future you will have to go back to eating gluten for testing.  

 

Honestly, if you want to keep really detailed logs, you may just want to use your office-like app (Android uses quick office) word processor and just type out what you are eating, and that way you should be able to save it and print it out for your nutritionist.  Either that or the old fashioned standby of a small notepad, haha.  A food diary is a great tool to have when you show up to a meeting with your medical professional, it helps them help you a lot.
