I want to enter my dinner from a restaurant in "foods" but I don't have the nutritional information...only the calories. Does anyone know if that is possible to do?

I believe you can just enter this as a custom food - from your food diary. Or you could just try to find a similar item and adjust the serving size to match the calories.

You probably have to ask the restaurant for the nutrition info. If they have it, u can add it manually.

Thanx for your help...I tried both! I found the item online from the restaurant but it doesn't list everything FatSecret wants for it to enter...like protein, fiber and a few other things. Soooo frustrating!

What I do in a situation like that is put in 0's for the other info fatsecret wants and make an actual note in the title that it isn't full info. that way you can mark your calories

CalorieKing.com has a lot of info on different items. I have had some luck there!

Daily Calorie Intake
At 306 lbs, 3700 calories would still put you in a deficit. You can definitely be more aggressive though. Try 3k and see how you feel and lower them slowly over time. I'm averaging over 3k and ...

sodium and calories
The calories and sodium are equally important. No one needs to be eating 4000 mg of sodium in a day then dousing it with tons of water. Your poor kidneys don't like this; you are making your kidneys ...
