Okay, I have been submitting recipes to the website, mainly because they are what I am making for dinners and lunches. The problem is that I cannot add some of the recipes to my diet calendar from last week. For example, if I add the recipe tonight, but I actually had it last Wednesday, how in the hell do I get it added to my diet calendar for last Wednesday? There isn't any way to insert the date that you want to add the recipe to, and if you try to add new items from the date that you're missing it won't allow you to bring up your recipes.... I know I could add all of the information into my favorite meals, but that would also entail me trying to figure out all of the components (sodium etc.) which I have no idea how to do; so it would just be easier if I could add the recipe to my diet calendar, even if they are in the past!!!

So basically, I need help either navigating the site or I need to add my meals before the week ends otherwise they can't be added at all?

Hopefully someone can answer this question! Cheers

Basically Fat Secret really doesn't handle personal recipes. You can't use them at all with the mobile app and the website implementation is really weak. If that's an important function to you I'd try a different site/app.

In the most recent update, you can access your cookbook. It's after saved meals.

Inputing only macros

You could use the website through a browser on your phone, rather than the app. Sign into the FatSecret website for the country of your choice.
