Is there anyway to add my own recipes to the enter food area? Maybe things that don't show up in the search?

I don't want to share them, just for ease of correctly adding my food ya know?

Yes! Hover over "MY FATSECRET" at the top of the page, and click on "My Cook Book". There's a link there for submitting a recipe. It's pretty straightforward.

Pro tip: If you're not planning to share it, name it something like "goldiecat's cream of liver soup". That way, when someone wants to create and share a "cream of liver soup" recipe, the name will be available for them.

Where is MY FATSECRET on my cellphone app? I added a personal recipe (not to share) but it does not show up on my cellphone or tablet, only online.

When you are adding foods, it is at the top. You have recently eaten, most eaten... now they added cookbook. You have to scroll through your options to get to it. Does that make sense?

Well that explains my difficulty. Guess I'll just use the App and skip duplicate entries here, too much trouble.

this is the only drawback of FatSecret ... not having the possibility to split your meals and customize them :(
