Problems now finding foods, different lately for you too?
Has anyone else had trouble finding foods that you previously entered
yourself or foods that are not common that you've used before? but now can't find?
Also, does the search have a lot fewer choices now? whereas before it would keep
scrolling down, and then even offer several more pages?
Now for me it rarely offers more pages, and sometimes just a couple choices and
that are different enough to be odd that they include them.?
This has been true now for a month or so, and both on the Mac using 2 different
browsers, and on my android Sony z5 xperia phone.
ALSO, separate issue, only on z5 phone: now when entering a new (& previously
entered food that can't be found) on the android, choosing weight is different,
and offers 100g or serving choices. but when I choose 100g, it does not have a
way to enter any amount. it just stays at 100g grayed out. ??

food search is now different, and much worse.
I'm upset. and sent this to contact fatsecret:
At fatsecret corporation Who is the IDIOT who messed up the database search algorism: It's MUCH more difficult and often impossible to find items previously entered.
Instead of continuing choices, the search just stops.
Also, Nothing comes up if the name sequence of the food is different than originally entered.
AND Who messed up the entry choice for FOOD weight in android app??????
Both have become onerous to deal with and completely unacceptable compared to prior, just a few weeks or months ago.
AND the food search algorism debacle has increased the need to re-enter foods again, thereby encountering the NEW limited choices for food weight. AS IN: if I choose 100g instead of Serving, it DOES NOT ALLOW ENTRY OF ANYTHING BUT that 100g, since clicking everywhere will not allow entry other than the persistent and very irritating 100g.

Time to switch to another service?
I am completely disgusted with fatsecret!

This was delivered to my email box today. out of the blue:
Loving what you eat. Be mindful of the food you eat. Enjoying each delicious taste will make it easier to stick to a sensible eating plan. For the foods you do love, look for ways to make them better for you. For example, if pizza is your weakness, substitute a lower-calorie crust and choose toppings that help counteract added fat and calories.

Not skipping meals. Although skipping breakfast may seem like a good way to cut calories, it's a plan that can actually backfire, making you hungrier as the day wears on, and more likely to overeat or sneak unhealthy snacks. Start each day with a well-rounded breakfast to fuel your body.
[to me, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. How about you?]
Eating smaller portions. When you simply must indulge, go ahead, but to do so in moderation. One clever way to keep your portions small: use a tablespoon, not a serving spoon to dish out portions.

Getting your fill in healthy ways. Overeating often comes down to a very basic cause: hunger. Becoming more conscious of how you answer your hunger will help you stay on track. Drinking water before and during events will help to fill you up so you are less likely to consume excess calories. Snacking throughout the day can also help keep hunger at bay; several small, healthy snacks, such as a handful of nuts or trail mix, can help keep you feeling full.

Acid Alkaline balance that we MUST have...
The pH scale is from 0 - 14
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 healthy 8 9 10 11 12 13 14
Human blood pH should be slightly alkaline ( 7.35 - 7.45 ). Below or above this range means symptoms and disease. A pH of 7.0 is neutral. A pH below 7.0 is acidic. A pH above 7.0 is alkaline.

An acidic pH can occur from, an acid forming diet, emotional stress, toxic overload, and/or immune reactions or any process that deprives the cells of oxygen and other nutrients. The body will try to compensate for acidic pH by using alkaline minerals. If the diet does not contain enough minerals to compensate, a build up of acids in the cells will occur.

An acidic balance will: decrease the body's ability to absorb minerals and other nutrients, decrease the energy production in the cells, decrease it's ability to repair damaged cells, decrease it's ability to detoxify heavy metals, make tumor cells thrive, and make it more susceptible to fatigue and illness. A blood pH of 6.9, which is only slightly acidic, can induce coma and death.
(One way the body will maintain this very important balance is to leach calcium from our bones to reduce the acid imbalance.)

The reason acidosis is more common in our society is mostly due to the typical American diet, which is far too high in acid producing animal products like meat, eggs and dairy, and far too low in alkaline producing foods like fresh vegetables. Additionally, we eat acid producing processed foods like white flour and sugar and drink acid producing beverages like coffee and soft drinks. We use too many drugs, which are acid forming; and we use artificial chemical sweetners like NutraSweet, Spoonful, Sweet 'N Low, Equal, or Aspartame, which are poison and extremely acid forming. One of the best things we can do to correct an overly acid body is to clean up the diet and lifestyle.

To maintain health, the diet should consist of 60% alkaline forming foods and 40% acid forming foods. To restore health, the diet should consist of 80% alkaline forming foods and 20% acid forming foods.

Generally, alkaline forming foods include: most fruits, green vegetables, peas, beans, lentils, spices, herbs and seasonings, and seeds and nuts.

Generally, acid forming foods include: meat, fish, poultry, eggs, grains, and legumes.

Shifting Your pH Toward Alkaline...

This chart is for those trying to "adjust" their body pH. The pH scale is from 0 to 14, with numbers below 7 acidic ( low on oxygen ) and numbers above 7 alkaline. An acidic body is a sickness magnet. What you eat and drink will impact where your body's pH level falls. Balance is Key !!!
see: for the chart.
