I am new to the site and there is a section where you can add food items to "My Food Diary" does anyone know what that means, can you access this place after adding food there? Is there a way that the system maintains a list of the everyday items that you eat so that you don't have to always go find them in the list?(I thought this was the My Food Diary place, but not sure now)

Under the MYFATSECRET tab on the top left of the home page, you will find your Diet Calendar. There you can find a history of what you have entered and edit as needed. the system will keep a record of everything you have entered. There is also an Exercise Diary where you can keep track of all your activities. Good luck and there is a great community of people here to help if you have questions or just get frustrated.

I also found that the next day, when you click the "add item" button under the meal, it brings up a list of items you recently added at the same meal times. I just used "create a meal" for my morning coffee to make it easier to add. (I'm on my third day learning my way around). Feel free to see what I did on my food diary about the coffee thing.

You can create recipes that you often make and add them as a meal, instead of doing each item individually. You can also just create meals under "My Favorite Meals" for groups of foods that you often eat together. For instance, if you always have cottage cheese with strawberries you can make that a meal and select them together.

As mentioned, you can also select from your Recent foods, and Favorite foods. Recent being the things you ate most recently, and Favorite being the things you eat most often.

Hope that helps, good luck!

The current FatSecret database has a great number of protein shakes already in it. That's easier than other web site databases where the obscure items like protein shakes do not exist and you must enter them manually.
