Hi there

I'm new to FatSecret, and I was wondering if you keep track of your water consumption in your daily diet record even though it contains zero calories and fat. Thanks

I don't keep track of mine in my food tracker, but it would be easy to.
Keep on keeping on!

You can absolutely track your water - just search for "water" in your food diary or scan the barcode of a water bottle (if available) - you can enter in how many oz you drank and you could even modify the title of your water entry to include the time that you drank it. It will give you different options like tap water, bottled water, carbonated water, etc... I don't think it really matters which one you choose.

Someone who is busier than you is working out right now.
There will come a day when you can no longer do this. Today is not that day.

Tracking my water is not really part of the challenge. It's more about not drinking anything else. But what I am doing anyway is marking in my date book (yes I keep a good old fashioned paper datebook in addition to my iPhone) a tick every time I refill my water bottle. At the end of the day I calculate how many glasses that was.

The only reason for time is so that everything doesn't happen all at once.

I have an app on my iPhone called Waterlogged that I use. It's pretty cool.

It would be interesting if the mobile application includes control of daily water consumption. It could even include warnings if you are not reaching the registered average.

I don't keep track of my water intake. I just fill a 24oz bottle of water and sip it throughout the day.

I think you call me … Sexy.

I track water under snacks/other, just to make sure I get my eight glasses a day.

The amount of liquid ounces recommended is your weight divided by 2.

I heard oolong tea is also good for weight loss. When I was doing low calorie diets I drank a cup at night.
