When you are in the Enter Food page, over to the right is a menu with a selection that says 'Copy Current Meal.' Under that, pick which meal from the day you want to save (breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack). A pop up menu will ask you again if you want to save that meal - say Yes. Then it will take you to a simple screen where you can enter a name for the meal, add in any descriptive notes that you want, select which meals it would be appropriate for, and choose to share or not share it with others in the FS community. Then at the bottom, the final step is to select the "Save Meal" green button.

My problem is whwn I SAVE (create a new saved meal) there is no way to enter calorie, protein, carb and fat informaitn. So once save and then If i select the saved meal to be added to my daily list but shows zeros for detail info...and I can't figue out where or how to add the detail. Anyone know how to do this?

Thanks for the answer to this question. I'm also suffering from not being able to eat a fraction of the saved meal, rather than the complete thing. But worse than that, I can't find the 'don't share' button. I don't really want all the random meals I save to be broadcast across the site! When I go back and look at the meal it says 'this meal has been submitted and shared'. How do I make all of this completely private?

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 :(
