There's a lot to say for common sense and well-balanced eating.
A food diary is a good idea....but remember (educate) how long it takes for food to go through the digestive tract...
Keep the left hand side of the book with any intake, including meds/supplements)...keep the right hand facing side for symptoms, including times, bms, etc. You may have to look back the day before to see food/symptom connections.
Other than that...I'm sitting on my hands.

My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS" worth it !!!
