Review: “At my dietician appointment this week, we were talking about ways I can remind myself to eat a meal, as certain meals (especially breakfast for me) are something I haven’t had for so long that it doesn’t even occur to me to have them. She made a suggestion of trying out the iPhone and Android app called ‘Recovery Record’. The app has a number of features, including: reminders at meal times (can go off at your chosen time); meal plans (you can choose, if you wish, to include your meal plan in the app, so that with your reminder, it can tell you what to have); and meal logging (not only does it allow you to log your meal, it also asks you a series of questions about how you are feeling physically and mentally, how strong your urge to binge or purge is, etc. The app can then turn these logs into a graph for you to be able to look back and see how the foods you have eaten/skipped have affected your mood, etc). This isn’t for everyone, but, for my particular therapy, has many benefits. Not only do I need a sort of reminder, I am also required to make food logs (for both myself and my therapist) as part of my therapy. I find it hard to remember to write down my meals on my sheet (which I find inconvenient to carry around), but I always have my phone on me, and if it sends me a reminder to eat, and then a following reminder to log my meal, I am much more likely to log the meal. The next feature that I really like is that you can choose whether or not to give your therapist/dietician/doctor the ability to monitor your logs online. They can log on to the website, and, with the password that you set from your phone (and can change at any time if you wish), they can go to the therapist’s part of the site, and monitor your logs. My therapist, dietician and I have all made the agreement that they will only look at my logs in the session with me, so it doesn’t feel a bit ‘big brother’, like I am being constantly watched. I understand that this app is not for everyone, and that not every feature is for everyone, but the good thing is that you can choose which of the features you wish to use. Personally, I think this is a great use of technology, and, for me, it has made one of my therapy tasks just that bit more manageable. My description of it all is pretty basic, there is a lot more to it, so I think you should check it out, if you think that it could be useful for you.”
