Recording your food diary: Easy Diet Diary

Easy Diet Diary (EDD) is our preferred method for patients to record their food diaries. It is an easy and accurate app that allows you to record your food and drink intake, and then share that data easily with our clinic dietitian. The app functions on Apple and Android devices (phone or tablet), and an internet connection is required to synchronise data.

EDD is accurate, reliable and easy to use on your smartphone. If you do not have a smartphone or internet-enabled tablet, please see the bottom of this page for alternative Food Diary options.

Step 1. Download the free app from the Apple iTunes store (iPhone) or Google Play store (Android). If using an iPad, change search settings to “iPhone only”.

Step 2. Open the app and sign up for an Easy Diet Diary account.

Step 3. Follow the steps to enter your profile details (age, gender, weight).

Step 4. Begin logging your food intake.

Step 5. Advise the clinic of the email address you used to create your account. If you signed up using the ‘Log in with Facebook’ option, please advise us of the email for your Facebook account. We will use this email to send a request from Easy Diet Diary asking you to share your data with our dietitian. Please click the link in that email, and then click the “Approve” button on the webpage that loads. (NOTE: Do not use the ‘Email your diary to your dietitian’ option within app as this will send your data in a format we cannot read.)

The app shown above is the correct Easy Diet Diary.

Do not use the specialised “EDD Renal” app which has a similar icon:

If Easy Diet Diary doesn’t seem right for you, you may record your intake manually on paper or in Microsoft Word. You will need to record all details very specifically on our approved template. Click here to download.
