It will get much easier after you've been on the plan for a few weeks! You'll probably have certain meals or food items that you eat often and they will be on your recent foods or favorites list. You'll start to remember how many points certain things are and then you can use the quick add feature.
They say that you can still have your daily and weekly points and still lose weight but I don't like to have my weekly points. If you find that you're not losing as much as you'd like, try staying within your daily points and eating fruit or veggies instead of an item you usually eat that has points.
As far as grocery shopping, it can be hard without a calculator but as long as you plan before you go it should be fine! Most websites have nutritional information for foods now so if you know that you want a certain item, you can check it online first. Stick with buying meat, veggies, fruits and wheat or whole grain items and you should be good to go!
