Hi,

After I added food to the DB, including the metric information, I'm still not able to add a specific amount of grams to my diary. I can select servings only. Because there are foods in the DB where one can enter a specific amount of grams, ml etc, I'd like to ask: how do I have to add the food, so this becomes possible?

cheers,

To add, for example, a specific number of grams for Black Beans.

1. Click on Foods
2. Click on Beans
3. Click on Black Beans
4. On the right hand side where it states add this to my diary click the serving size area and a drop down menu will appear.
5. Selected grams
6. Enter the specific amount of grams.

You can do this for most specific foods. For larger portion sizes you can enter a decimal percentage of that serving size.
Pain is a by-product of a good time.

Download of Information
I found that if you log in at fatsecret.com the button is there, but is not present on fatsecret.co.uk The csv output is not very well formatted though.

Fitbit has an open API
I have used fitmess successfully for a month or more. Works great.

Coloured lines on weight stats
They change colors the closer to your goal. Blue is basically at goal.
