Food Journal

t writes:
It's a really good idea to keep a food journal, if you're not already. Some bad reactions to things will show up very quickly, but others can take a week or two, and a food journal is very helpful for seeing those connections. Every day, write down your symptoms, what you ate, and if you've added something new.

In addition to allowing you to see connections between foods and reactions, the food journal can also provide you with a way to see your progress. You didn't get sick over night and it will take time for you to heal. The process can also be two steps forward and one step back. A food journal can help you track the slow improvements you make over time and don't notice from day to day, and can be a good tool for keeping yourself on track.
