N=1: looking for software / template for documenting food intake / variables

Hello! I've been experimenting with food intake for a long time. I feel like I might be overlooking a lot of intersting trends by not having a structured overview of food intake and other interesting variables. So I want to make a database and be able to analyse. Before I re-invent the wheel, what do you guys use? Is there a piece of software? Do you have a excel shet or spss file? Can I see your template? With kind regards, Maarten

Wow, that's awesome. This will replace my current nutritiondata tool. Thanks!

I like using nutritiondata.self.com, but I haven't found an efficient way to do this on a daily basis where patterns would be easier to see (seems like a pain to log anyway.) I tend to add up everything I've eaten a few days out of the week to familiarize myself with what I'm eating. (Have you seen Stephen Wolframs analytics http://blog.stephenwolfram.com/2012/03/the-personal-analytics-of-my-life/ ?)

I'm a big fan of fitday.com. It tracks macro/micronutrient levels and allows you to enter food in at nearly any level of precision. (From servings to grams, etc). For subjective information, it has a built in "food diary" where you can leave yourself notes on how you feel each day. Graphs will generate in real time allowing for long-term tracking. I like it!

I guess you'd want to look at cronometer.

perfect diet tracker... i have found this really good because in NZ we can't purchase the myfitnesspal software and the online version with ads is really slow.
