I am beginning my second week and am trying to figure out the best way to create my food groupings. I'd like to create my smoothies, reg sandwich etc, without having to add each food each time.Any suggestions would be appreciated as I am spending far too much time in food tracking.

Do you use the nutrition tracker here? It will give you amounts of what to eat for protein, carbs, and fat, and any other additional nutrients you choose. I don't worry about what food groups things come from. For example, you can get protein from multiple food groups... you can get it from a piece of chicken (meat), or some yogurt (dairy), or even from bread (grains). So, what's more important is that you're getting the right balanced amounts of actual protein, carbs, fat etc, not where it comes from.

Hi! I am terrible at keeping up with the food groups and making sure I eat what I should and don't go overboard in another category. I'm not even sure how much of each I'm supposed to have. Is there an app for Android or a website online that can keep track of this. Thanks for your help.
