Very easy and helpful app!

I liked this app so much that one or two days into free trial I purchased the full version. (The trial allows full functionality but the paid version allows unlimited usage- exporting reports and such). After another day or so I even purchased the medication add on.

App is easy to use. I did have a question that took the developer a little bit of time to respond to, but he ultimately did respond with apology for late response. It turned out ok because I ended up figuring out the answer myself in the meantime.

I did have a suggestion for one slight improvement and the developer answered quite quickly. I was told my idea isn’t quite possible yet but others have suggested same thing so my request is being added to the list of people making the request. (Ability to add photo into symptom section).

Looking forward to bringing my print out to the doctor.

Just what I was looking for

Struggling with a suddenly worsened food intolerance and severe acid reflux, resulting in having to do an elimination diet. I checked out so many apps that focused more on calories and didn’t help me track what was happening in my body in response to specific foods or medications.

Foody has been perfect for what I needed! Easily enter meals (love reusable ingredient breakdowns), track symptoms, and miscellaneous category allows me to document meds, exercise, and more. I used the free version and could generate pdfs for the last 7 days that I can easily share with my allergist & decided to pay for the full features since it looks like it’s gonna take some time and trial and error to safely reintroduce foods.

Highly recommend this app for anyone trying to better understand connections between their diet and symptoms. My only negatives are that you have to pay for medication add-on separately from the lifetime paid version, and the Send Feedback link doesn’t seem to work. One thing I’d love is if there could be a desktop option so I could enter data from my laptop more easily than on my phone.

Very portable alternative to a “notebook sized log”

Both for myself and for my doctor’s visit next week. I was keeping a handwritten log in a pocket sized notebook — then I found Foody. I too like how it doesn’t focus on calories/nutrients/etc, as these aren’t useful for my purpose, as well as it seems, many other users of this app.
However, I agree that there needs to more of a direct correlation between the food consumed and the symptoms. Perhaps this could be parsed from the time eaten/onset of the effects … but this seems like a bit more work on the part of the reader than is necessary.
I had to guess what the 3 check boxes under “SITUATION” were intended to mean … perhaps (CIRCUMSTANCES?) especially the “On The Way” choice. It could be better explained and also have more choices, as more than those 3 reasons are usually possible; even probable. Maybe add two more choices/check boxes for overall moods/feelings: positive (happy, energized, even simply “good”) or negative (sad, angry, frustrated, etc)? These do have an effect on the food choices made as well as the possible outcomes.
I do like how one is able to add more details in the text box that follows each entry.
