Trying to get on top of some long-standing food sensitivities/intolerances, and looking for recommendations on what to put in a food/dietary log.

After years of chronic bellyaches and lots of experimentation with diet and elimination of various foods, I'm determined to get to the bottom of what's ailing my poor tummy. I'll be going to see a GI specialist soon, and I've pretty much completely cut out gluten, among other things.
I've been meaning to keep a food log/journal to have a clearer sense of what foods affect me and how. My basic sense is that it would be useful to write down every single thing I consume, as well as how I feel immediately and later on. Other things I've thought about including are amount of sleep and stress level. Has anyone done this and is there anything else you found to be useful to track? Any suggestions would be most appreciated!
