Thanks to Bunnykicks for the great ideas on how to change our goofs. I'm sure it's something everyone does from time to time...but especially us "newbies":-)

Hah, I do this all the time.

If it's a short list of foods in the wrong spot, like one or two items, I just edit the item. (Click on it, and change it from Breakfast to Lunch or whatever, "save" and voila it moves).

If I put an entire meal in the wrong slot (which sometimes is 5 or 10 individual items!), I use the "copy" feature, and copy the entire meal to the proper slot. Then I go to "remove multiple foods" button and erase them out quickly and easily from the "wrong" spot.

Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

There's not a way to drag foods from one category to another. If you put breakfast into the snack category by mistake, for instance, then I'd just put my snack in the breakfast category. At the end of the day you'll still have an accurate account of calories consumed, which matters most.

I know that the best thing would be to pay attention to which meal is chosen for the default setting....

But on many occasions I'll post foods, only to realize, "Darn! Those just went on my Snack 2 setting rather than for Breakfast." I've tried to drag a food to a different meal, but that didn't work. I usually end up removing the various foods and reposting them to the correct meal, but it seems like there ought to be an easier way to do that.

Does anyone have advice or tips on easy ways to do this?

Thanks!
