I love the Nutrition Tracker! It took me a while to get the hang of it but it is worth the effort.
Then I decided to set it up to suit my personal needs and likes. For example, instead of having to search for each bread listed by its brand I manually entered all my breads ( copying the information from the label ) and type in the word 'Bread' first.
When I need to track a bread all I have to do is type in Bread and it takes me to my entire list of breads. I like to be able to see the calories in the title.
"Bread - Arnold - Pumpernickel - 80Cal/1-Slice" "Bread - Cobblestone Mill - Sourdough - 80Cal/1-Slice" "Bread - Pepperidge Farm - Rye/Pump - 80Cal/1-Slice" It automatically puts each entry in alphabetical , too! How nice is that?
I do this with all my entries now. I sub-title them....Juice, Chicken, Lettuce, Crackers, Candy, Beans, Cheese, Vitamins, and so on.
I wish there was a way to share our entire trackers with each other in one click. I have put so much time and effort into customizing mine and would love to be able to share it.
***To manually add foods yourself click the big white tab 'Search'. Then look to the right for word Search in the smaller green box. Below in small print is 'Enter Food Not Listed'. Click on that. Now a big box pops up where can manually type in the title and below all the nutritional facts.
***If you made a mistake or just want to change or customize your tracker click on the big white tab Favorites. Float the cursor and a drop down box appears. There are two ways to edit your tracker.
Every time I try something new I enter the information. If I haven't had the time before it is all gone I remove the label and enter the information the next time I have the time. Sometimes my desk is covered with labels. LOL
I bought a new flavor this week and just sat down to enter the information.
I looked at the video but it didn't show me how to add new foods. How is this done?

Can someone please help me? I often use Jamie Oliver or Gordon Ramsay receipes or other receipes from my cooking books. How can I track a serving without having to share them on Sparkpeople (given that they're not my receipes)?
