Since a month or two i started to notice that some foods that were in the local supermarkets database disapeared and even some foods that i inserted myself have disapeared..
I'm talking about the mobile database..
What was it? a crash? or is this normal? i'm really starting to think to move to other software because of this.. most of my day to day foods have disapeared and i don't want to insert them all again..

I've noticed this as well and it does not make me happy! I started using this because it had a lot of foods that no one else listed. I've sent FATSECRET an email but they have yet to reply. I hope they fix this cause most of the other sites aren't nearly as good.

i had similar thing happen aswell but then i found out the app changed its country automaticly for whatever reason so i had germany instead of austria and the products from austria started to disappear.
took me a week to find out about it and change it back.

i have no idea what your issue could be tho.

this is even happening in the web site search. For months I have entered "high fiber tortilla" and the search spits out many versions, in many calorie counts and brands. Suddenly the list is much shorter, there are duplicates and the one I need is missing. I created a new entry and it disappeared in 24 hours.
AND when trying to edit foods in the diary, the site hangs and then throws an error message with a request to know what you were doing when it happened.

i just use the phone app of fatsecret and scan in barcodes as l eat food, or maybe jot down on paper what you have eaten during the day and add it in later when you get a quiet time.

Hi Everyone, I have a question are we able to change the Macro #'s or is it just the Calories daily intake that can be changed. Thank you for all your help.
