Completing your 7 day food diary - a checklist
When you come for a consultation I may suggest you completing a 7 day food diary so that I can see if there are easy changes we can make to benefit your condition or support fertility or pregnancy.
Choose a typical week
Complete the diary on either Word or Excel and email it to me.
Let me know if
there are foods you can’t eat
there are foods you prefer not to eat
you follow a specific diet such as vegan or gluten free
everything that you eat for seven days (it is usually important to include the weekend as many of us eat differently then)
everything you drink
the times that you eat
when cooking at home a brief list of ingredients
I will then do some colour coding and some counts to help illustrate how your nutrition balance looks, and will email the chart back to you together with some ideas and suggestions for how that balance might be improved. I may also suggest particular foods that will benefit you and your aims.
