Diet Diary Info

Post by jimmylegs » Fri Apr 05, 2019 1:55 pm

If you are planning to see a dietitian for guidance re healthy eating, consider completing a three day diet diary and bringing it with you to your appointment.

i like this example because it has a lot of supporting how-to information:

3‐Day Diet Diary Form and Instructions
http://www.ucdenver.edu/research/CCTSI/ ... ryForm.pdf

obviously (eg given the not-generally-applicable contact info) it is intended for a very specific program, but any dietitian will be able to advise on content you provide to fill out this kind of record.

i would like that form even better if it required an entry for time of day. easy enough to add! there are many different versions of these diaries floating around online.

overall, the more detail the better :)
take control of your own health
pursue optimal self care at least as actively as a diagnosis
ask for referrals to preventive health care specialists eg dietitians
don't let suboptimal self care muddy any underlying diagnostic picture!
