Food diaries are a much-debated subject, in the media, and in the cloud. Some studies suggest that keeping a diary of what you eat leads to better life-choices all around. Others complain that diaries about food become monotonous, and abandoned, in time.
Several web sites are working on making a food diary more palatable, adding applications for your smart phone, customizing common foods that you eat every day, and even building whole menus for each meal.
Medhelp boasts the largest online site for managing your food intake, exercise, and even your conditions, like high blood pressure or diabetes. There are others, so check them out. MyFoodDiary may be worth a look.
