I'm in my 50's, living life to the fullest. I'm a breast cancer survivor and recently celebrated the 4th anniversary of my last treatment. My life goals are to be healthy, fit and active with my husband of 30 years. We enjoy scuba diving, hiking with our two dogs, gardening, boating, and watching British murder mysteries. We have two adult children who currently live in different states.

The way of eating that works for me - Low Carb Weight Watchers. I avoid white carbs, starchy vegetables, legumes, milk, yogurt, and stuff that comes in a box. I limit fruit to 1 serving a day. Any treats have to be "worthy" of the points or calories! I used to do LCHF, but my weight loss was slow, and I hated giving up holiday food and ice-cream or fruit in the summertime, and feeling guilty when I did enjoy these treats. Low Carb Weight Watchers is the balance I need.

My favorite fitness activities - walking outside, hiking, and yoga. I also track steps and activity with Fitbit, and aim for 10-12,000 steps, 60-90 active minutes, and at least 30 minutes of "intentional" exercise 4-5 times a week. And yes, Housework counts as exercise!

Custom Food Details
When I click add item in my food diary and what I am searching doesn't come up, I see the add new food come up at the bottom. So let's say you put Keto Cinnamon Roll in the search box. Nothing will come up, but then you click add new food, enter all of your nutrition info etc. You can then choose to share or keep it private. I've done that with a couple of things.

Cook Book
I have lots that are pending too, but it says "add to food diary" as a choice, and I use them all the time. But they are recipes that I didn't want to share. Are your recipes ones that you have submitted for review? Maybe when you do that, you can't edit it or add it until it gets approved.

I'm trying the Ketogenic diet
When you have your food journal open, look over to the right. Look for My Favorite Meals. You'll see Copy Current Meal. Click on which meal you want to copy, and thne save the meal - give it a title you will recognize like Breakfast 5/23, and then when you go to your saved meals, you can put the whole meal on another date. I do this all the time because I eat a lot of the same things - it saves a lot of time!!!! I put in my Breakfast for the whole week because I always eat the same things.

After you click on the blue plate icon to enter your food, look in the gray bar at the top. The first icon is a settings, or preferences icon. After you click it, scroll to the bottom, You can click the boxes for what nutrition information you want to view (up to 4). I stumbled across this by accident! I wish the recipes that I've entered in my cookbook and other members have submitted had net carbs, but I just subtract the fiber.
