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!

Proteins
Sounds fine to me. As long as you're getting the rest of your macros in for the day you should be good.

Maybe starving is the wrong word here for Colourguardie and Chef as the context they are taking it in seems to imply that if you don't feel hungry then you're not 'starving'. The best ...
