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!

I don't know if you sew or not, but there are a few patterns out there for shaping garments and corsets. They are not too difficult to make if you have a little sewing experience under your belt. ...

Yeah that kind of rudeness is rampant. I think tons of people are just that selfish. How to keep moving on? Just flip your hair over your shoulder and keep workin it. That aint nothin but a hair flip.

Yeah, just assume calorie(s) whenever you see kcal. xD I never even knew it meant kilocalorie.
