It would be great to have it separate, but adding it to the food journal works

I'm with you. Separate water tracking and also it would be nice to be able to add your own exercise and calories burned or steps walked....

Add me as another who would like a water tracker. I've found that when there is a separate water tracker, I drink more water.

I sent a message to the site to suggest this feature. Maybe if we all do it we will get it!

This would be an excellent idea, I agree that when I have a seperate water tracker I do drink more water, and I would also like to add my own activities to the excercise section.

in the exercise diary if you choose other, you can input a custom activity and how long you did it and how many kcal you burned. you can also save your water in the food diary in fl oz and add it up for the day to total how many ounces of water you drank that day.

I agree that a separate water tracker would motivate us to drink more of it! Please add it.

So, where is it then? I just came here from the “my fitness buddy” app and let me tell you the water tracker on that site is about the only thing that makes me want to use that over this website.

I REALLY wish there was some sort of credit to your weight loss projections if you reach water consumption goals.

See here:

Expert Insight
In 2010 research from Virginia Tech nutrition professor Brenda Davy, subjects who drank two glasses of water before eating each major meal lost nearly 30 percent more weight than participants who did not drink the water and followed the same low-calorie diet. On average, the water drinkers ate 75 to 90 fewer calories at each meal and lost close to 16 lbs. over the 12-week study period.
How It Works
Davy isn't positive about why drinking water before meals and throughout the day can help you lose weight, but she has a few theories. One is that water acts as a natural appetite suppressant. It fills your stomach to some degree, curbing overall hunger and leading to a lower net calorie consumption. Another theory is that water fills you up in the same way that other drinks do, such as soda or juice, but it helps contribute to weight loss because it's free of calories. CNN Health physician nutrition specialist Dr. Melina Jampolis also suggests that drinking more water can help you slim down because it can be hard for the body to differentiate between hunger and thirst, and having water may satisfy cravings that initially seemed to indicate hunger.
Weight Loss
There's no way to tell how much weight you can lose by drinking 8 cups of water per day, because the amount depends on how many calories you eat as well as how much physical activity you do. As the National Institutes of Health points out, the only proven way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you consume. Although drinking 64 oz. of water daily may help you lower your total calorie consumption, it's not a guaranteed method. However, if you do end up reducing calories because of drinking more water, you are likely to post results similar to those in Davy's study, which indicate that you may lose just over 1 lb. per week.

YES...WE NEED A WATER TRACKER!!!!!....why hasn't this been added?....and WHAT is going on with the canned tuna? My canned tuna has 100 calories per 5 oz can(TWO 50 calorie servings), but all the listings show a 6.5 oz can for at least 186 calories.... What is going on with that?

Sidenote to missbecky: if your tuna's info isn't in the foods already, you can add it! There's an "add new food" link, and you just enter all the nutritional info as it's listed on the label.

+1 Add separate section or some way to highlight water. It's too important not to.
