Food Diary

When you retire you will have a lot more spare time..... to visit your health care specialists and the doctors!!  Not quite!!

As part of monitoring my health, our wonderful French Health Service takes a huge interest in a lot of normal health parameters, such as weight, blood pressure, diet, blood tests etc etc. 

Before moving to France I rarely saw my Doctor, these days it seems to be every 3-6 months. But I'm not complaining, it's good to have this level of care. 

I've mentioned about doing blood pressure tests and logging the results before. At my most recent visit to see my Doctor, I was given an information sheet (en francais of course) to log my food intake for a week prior to my next appointment. 

It seemed like a great opportunity for another insert! I've translated the sheet in to English and created it as an A4 insert. The boxes are then a sensible size to write in. After punching the left hand edge, fold it in half and then back to the right hand edge. (Z fold).

Bon appétit et bonne santé !!

  1. Thank you Steve – most timely! I was about to create a similar sheet myself.
    Have been using Philofaxy blood pressure record sheets with an added weight column, and slightly modified medications sheets. Having the sheets in my Filofax with diary reminders has improved recording reliability greatly which has impressed my GP on my return visits to UK...
