HATE CRIMES, TERRORISTS, what is the cause?
Yes, a divided country we are. I agree. Causing hate crimes labeled Terrorist. personally I think it's more corporations that have done that and are doing that, more so than ISIS or terrorists.
I don't' think corporations consciously set out to divide us, since a corporation is like a brainless machine, that makes money. No humanity, and the humans working in it are brainwashed, limited, and about as powerless as the rest of us: who are victims AND benefactors of corporate behavior (Smart phones, high tech cars, gadgets, internet, etc; distracting us with "News"& entertainment, LACKING A WORLD VIEW, AND tailored to cause alarm, fear or lust, AND distraction. & Victims meaning: rampant obesity compared to 40 years ago, dividing us into good or bad, republican or democrat, for or against, division, division, division everywhere. No time to eat properly with long commutes, no stable family structure, high stress of this fast modern society, poor quality foods DEPLETED OF A LOT OF ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS AND MINERALS, High in salt, fat, calories (standardized to 140 calories per serving on a lot of things, snacks) lots or NOISE everywhere, being bombarded with brainwashing advertising, masters of deception...
High stress requires more B vitamins (& corporate produced B vitamin tablets are massively deficient, actually causing more deficiency), and the foods we eat, even if eating well, lack enough B vitamin for our high stress lives.
SEEMS hopeless? it’s not.
Educating ourselves, resisting temptation, taking the road less traveled, QUESTION EVERYTHING. Smile

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.
