I have created a video which explains how to use the fmdlog website you, can access it by clicking here.

1) To use this site you need to first register by clicking on the Register/Login link.

2) You will receive an email with a link to activate your account.

3) The link will take you to the login page which will take you to the fmdlog home page.

4) Start creating your food database by clicking on the Create Food Database link. From that page you can click on the Add Food link to add food to your database or you can click on the Load Sample Database to create a sample database of foods. You may want to start with the sample database and just delete food items you don't eat. I've found it easiest just to add foods as I needed to on a daily basis. If you have loaded the sample database and decide you don't want it, you can use the Delete All link to remove all of the entries from your database. Warning -- this will delete everything in your database, even the foods you've added. After a few days of entering foods as you eat them you'll find you have most of the foods you regularly eat in your database.

5) Once you have the food items you need in the database to get started, use the List Today's Food link from the navigation bar to add your daily food servings.

6) From there you can click on the Add Servings link to add what you plan to eat before each meal.

7) The Add Servings page will allow you to select foods from a drop down list showing your food database. You can specify the number of servings you are going to have (for example you could list 1.5 for 1 1/2 servings).

8) After you enter the servings for your meal you can click on Return To View/Update/Delete Page to see the listing of how many calories you've had so far and what the percentage of your calories are from fat, carbohydrates, and protein. I also have listed the grams of sodium you've had for the day. Sodium is not used in the FMD diet so you can ignore this entry if you wish.
9) You can use the Delete today's servings link to delete all of your daily entries when you start a new day (this will not delete the foods from your database).
