Question I am trying to find a way to enter things that are home-cooked, like soup but am not sure how this is to be done. I also want to change the settings on what people can see. Need aomse help on both . Thanks!

Hi, I'm new to this site. If I understand you correctly, I would just enter the ingredients separately for a total of cals., etc. I did notice when I entered my breakfast, in the lower r.h. corner was an area to enter recipes or other items that are not in the data base. Hope this helps. Pam

I do a recipe analysis on another site that gives me the breakdown of what calories, etc. are per serving for a recipe. Then I either create my own entry or look for something that has very similar calories, etc.

Unfortunately, you cannot pick and choose what you want to share. It's pretty much all or nothing. I don't want to share my journal entries, because I wouldn't be as honest with myself if I did, so I have to have my options set to not sharing my weight. It would be nice if you could choose just to share what you want and keep other things private, but if you share one thing you share everything.

Good luck and welcome!

Submit your meal as a recipe. You can choose whether or not it's shared. After you enter it then you can put it in your food diary by the number of portions you eat per meal.

Any activity trackers that sync with FatSecret?
I'm debating on buying a FitBit Charge HR or a Jawbone Up3. I wish there was a tracker which would feed the activity to my FatSecret.

Not hungry anymore
Eating so little will put your body into starvation mode. And that's not good - long term you could get ill, you need to eat a sensible amount for your weight.
