Hi everyone. I'm new here and I'm still trying to get everything sorted. Very Happy Both the PC UI and Phone app is fantastic and outshines all other health and fitness sites out there. It's very intuitive and so easy to use and I was very excited to get started as it seemed I would have everything I could need.

There is a single critical element missing and that is how many calories do I have left for the day? Crying or Very sad It's a deal breaker for me and I was disappointed to learn this feature was missing and feel it's equally important as knowing how many calories have been consumed. If this feature was included, it would put all of the other sites in FS's shadow. Is there a plan to include this feature at some point? Surely I'm not the only one who would like to see this?

Thats weird... My phone app tells me how many I have eaten.

Opening screen tells me how many calories remain.

Then when I click on food, I can see how many I have eaten. Even to go as far as to what, when and where the calories came from.

My RDI is set at 2700, so some quick math tells me all I need to know.

Do you mean the opening screen on your app? I'm on a Samsung Windows phone. Perhaps the apps is not exactly the same as the one you are using.

Assuming that the windows phone application is the same as the Android application it's on the "summary" page (also the widgit on my home screen).

If the windows application is different then you are right it's a very odd thing to have been left out.

Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

Getting started
i just use the phone app of fatsecret and scan in barcodes as l eat food, or maybe jot down on paper what you have eaten during the day and add it in later when you get a quiet time.

Drink lots of water. If you can, try drinking the Benefiber packets in your bottled water. It keeps you feeling full which helps during the detox phase and it helps with bloat, belly fat, and energy.
