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.

If you can see it? click the little blue X next to each of the items that's listed for your breakfast on your food diary page. :-)

Thanks, TorhildJ. That was my experience living in BE all summer; some barcodes worked, but it worked poorly if I had no bar code (e.g., a nice block of aged Dutch gouda from AH). I didn't think ...

I've had the same problem Drammaw and it is frustrating! Instead of using the cook book feature, try saving your recipe under "Add New Food." You can put yourself as the "Manufact ...
