View Full Version : Entering custom meals in Fitday

Hey everyone, it's been awhile since I've used Fitday but I want to start again - accountability, you know!

Anyway I know how to enter custom foods (something with a nutritional label on the package), but how about if it's a whole meal? I'm having chicken stir fry tonight, and am at a loss as to how to enter it. I'm thinking each item individually, but I wonder if there's any way to store all that info under one heading. :dizzy:

Go to a blank day in the future, like tomorrow, and enter all the individual ingredients. Then divide the total calories, grams of protein, fats, and carbs by the number of servings. Then create a new custom food called Chicken Stir Fry and enter in the values for one serving and save it. You'll have Chicken Stir Fry listed in your custom foods for the future! :)

(Don't forget to delete everything from tomorrow's page when you're done!)

PS - when's dinner? Sounds good! :T

Meg! Thank you so much - I knew it couldn't be that hard. Dinner's at 7:30, it's 7:20 now, and I'm in Ontario - you'd better hurry, I'm setting a place!
