Hi, guys. I'm on Day 8 of Atkins induction, and using the smartphone app to track.

I guess there are limitations to the phone app, or I don't know how to do it, so I figure I'd better get acquainted with the desktop diary too, and edit it as needed.

1) How do I save a complete meal? Can I do that on the phone app?

2) I want to do this to be able to access previously used menu entries, so I don't have to search through 50 types of bacon to find the one I'm using. So if I can create a saved list of just ITEMS, that's fine. (Maybe I can just save one meal, and add countless items to it, so I'll always have access to them?)

3) How do I change my default RDI calories of 1500?

Thanks for your help!

RDI change: Computer Version - From "My FatSecret" menu, click on "Diet Calendar" and then "View Full Diet Calendar". Scroll to the bottom of the page - underneath the "Calorie Breakdown" box there is an option "Set your Recommended Daily Intake". Smart Phone (I use iPhone) - open app, click on the home at the upper left of the screen. You should then see a % of RDI you have consumed for the day. Touch the %, and it will take you to a screen to recalculate RDI. In both of these options you can choose to use what FatSecret calculates, or you can type in a level you have calculated from other sources. I find that FatSecret may be a bit over-generous on the amount of calories I can consume and lose or maintain weight.

Coloured bars?
Go to the meal in your food diary and click on the "x" next to the item you wish to delete. It is a tiny "x." The bars are progress bars. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue. Blue ...
