I use Dailyburn for food and exercise logging (altho not 100% consistent). Is there a good free online or download food journal software that you all use? I will not, ever, ever maintain a handwritten anything. not going to happen. I know me too well.

The dailyburn is a great system, but I am looking for maybe something that you can use to keep track of possible allergens/intolerances.It would be great if you had something that you could record food and it knew allergens in it. You also tracked how you felt and could then correlate the two. That would be so much better than "Well, i had pizza last night and today I was nauseaus. I think that happened last time too..."

I am searching for something like this too. I found an app I might buy for iPhone for $2.99 called Food Allergy Detective. It has good reviews although not a great number of them yet. I think it was 9 or 10. Since almost everything I eat is at home, I'd be interested in a computer based one too. I look forward to seeing what anyone else recommends.

Yes, that's the one I was talking about. The main reason I haven't gotten it yet is that you can not enter specific times for foods or symptoms. It relies on the user to be able to do that at the time they eat or have a problem. If I get a stomachache at 3:00am, I don't want to have to go put it in my phone, but if I wait until the next morning, that would throw the data off. Same with entering food. If I eat a quick snack while doing something else and don't click that into the app until later when I have time, that data won't correctly correlate with symptoms. I have suggested the time addition on the app contact us link. Hopefully, someday it will have those capabilities.

I have been conversing with the app maker via e-amil this afternoon and the Food Allergy Detective app allows users to change the default/current time/date when entering foods or symptoms, so I am going to buy it. It is available for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

So excited to get a handle on what's bothering my system. Before I was diagnosed, I seemed to be able to eat almost anything. Since going gluten-free, I have had to remove dairy, soy, corn, broccoli, onion, vinegar and some others, but I only feel better for a while and then something else begins to bother me. I have big hopes for this app to help me track down the trends in symptoms.

The app is designed for simplicity, but you can alter it to be a little more precise by adding, editing or deleting foods or symptoms. I took wheat off and added things like rice, potato, xanthan gum and guar gum. I am already soy-free, but sometimes eat something with soy lecithan, so I changed soy by adding lecithan. I am already MSG-free, so took that off, etc. Then I added to the symptoms list to make it reflect mine. Any new food or symptom later can be added, then tracked. I'm looking forward to using this app.
