Meal TrackerTreatments & Therapies, Forms + Questionnaires
Using a Meal Tracker
A meal tracker, or diet/food diary, can help your practitioner to get a better idea of what you eat over a number of days. This is a way for us to gather some additional information from you and not to make judgment. Please follow the instructions below for proper use:
- Please include the time you ate your meal or snack in each box
- In the columns, write down the type of food you ate or liquid you consumed. Be as specific as you can.
- Don't forget to write down any 'extras' like salad dressing, mayonnaise on your sandwich, etc. Approximate portion size is also helpful.
- Comment on how you felt after eating. For example: full, still hungry, satisfied, tummy ache, bloated, gassy, anxious) in the 'Notes' section.
- Don't change your eating habits while you are keeping your food diary. Be honest. Remember, this is just a way for us to learn more about you!
- Keep this form with you and write things down as they happen. Don't rely on your memory at the end of the day.
- If you are unable to print this spreadsheet at home, please ask our front desk team to do so.
- Please add a '1' to keep track of the amount of water you consume each day. For example: 111 = 3 cups
