Hi Jessie's Mom, Welcome. A food diary is simply writing down everything you eat. And yes, if certain syptoms appear, I would jot them down too.
I'm glad you are starting to feel better.
If you go to control panel, click on that then go to edit profile, you should be able to creaste a profile. It just helps so that every time you post a message you don't have to retell you whole story. Control panel is toward the top, right next to log off.
Good luck and take care, Bellski
