Having read about and tried keeping a food diary to track and plan your diet I thought there must be an easier way than doing it on paper and working it all out manually so I started looking and thought I'd share what I found with anyone else here who keeps or wants to keep a food diary.

I found this website called (well actually I found several but liked this one best) where you can log what you've eaten (or plan what you're going to eat) and it analyses it for you against RDA's (English ones which I think are based on the World Health Organisation advice) and calorie requirements. It analyses viatmins and minerals as well as the usual fats, carbs and protein. It's got a (small) subscription fee but it's really useful to see where you're going right/wrong with your diet. It even has recipes you can use built in (or enter your own) and creates shopping lists for you once you've created a menu.

You can adjust the calorie requirements and RDA's for your own needs too (which I have on the advice of my doctor since I'm 7 months pregnant and trying to keep my weight gain under control) which I guess would also be very useful if you were on restricted calorie or sugar diets or if you were doing lots of exercise.

Anyway, just thought I'd share that with you in case I'm not the only one out there who has to keep track of my eating to keep it under control! So much easier than having pages of A4 to trawl through.

Try, go to healthy living and there is a journal for you to log in. It's free.

I found the website to be hard to get used to so I bought the full version and I love it. It's so much easier! It has so much more food in its memory and you don't have to go searching through lists you just start typing and it narrows it down.
For example, if I ate and apple all I have to type is "ap" and apple appears on the list.
The best part about the full version is that it has a body measurement log so you can track how many inches you have lost. I measure about once a month and its great to see the progress.

I have tried fitday too but prefer the NutriPlanner one as I find it more adaptable and customisable to what I want it to tell me. Each to their own though! Use whatever suits you best I think.
