I don't care for WW in general and their site is lousy but I do like the way you track your food. I think it's a lot more accurate & you don't have to list 25 or so different vitamins and minerals to get in in the system.
Luann, I'm retired. Time is less of a problem for me. Also, I was in IT. I managed servers and know how fast they can fill up. Even though each food entry is infinitesimally small, they add up, and I can't, in good conscience, input everything I eat. I searched on "fun size M Ms" (The & is not allowed in a search -- another of my beefs -- I mean, it's part of the brand name! Chick-fil-A is another.) and got 60 items. All that duplication is atrocious. So I'll do what I can, have time for, and have the inclination to do.

Sounds like the OP can save a lot of time by just entering the info herself. That's what I do.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll pass it along! In the meantime, if you find an item from our database (not member entered) is incorrect, you can click on the button to view the nutritional information before adding it to your nutrition tracker, then in the upper right corner of the nutritional information window is a section where you can click to report that item as being incorrect. We then get notified about it and will check into it and if necessary make corrections.

I have found a lot of prepared foods in the database that have outdated nutrition information. The company has changed the product and therefore the counts are not current. Sometimes I go through every one in the list of a given product trying to find one that has the numbers to match what I've got, and still may not find one. Only then do I input that food, but I add the year to show it was recently input. Could the software automatically give the year that food was input so that we can at least start with the latest one?
