Hi all, Ive posted this question twice before, but not getting any answers. Not sure if I did it wrong or just nobody answering, so will try one more time.
When I enter a new custom food into the nutrition panel for use in my food diary, even though I save it, it doesn't always show up. I even tried exiting the prog and opening it up again and it still isn't there.....although occasionally it is !!!. Any ideas please ????. Its getting frustrating as sometimes I give up then forget to try again to see if I can add it, so its not included in my days food list.

I find this happens as well. Not sure why as I do the same things each time I enter a food but sometimes I can't find it either!

Kim, I only just saw your reply. I find this site to figure out !!. It seems you have to click Save at the bottom of nutrition panel page after entering, and then when back on your diary page, on the right hand side, towards the bottom, there is another Save and Add button. It usually works for me now. I was only saving the first time. HOpe that helps.

I know I have to enter ingredients sometimes because it won't let me add the meal itself and it has a meal app to the right. I'm like you, still figuring it out.
