At first tracking your nutrition can seem cumbersome, but once you get the hang of it, it is very helpful in tracking more than just calories. One thing I've learned is not to be so obsessive about it. Say you ate some type of cracker. Type in the brand name of cracker (Keebler Flatbread for instance), and you'll probably see a long list of crackers other have listed. Click on one, enter how many you ate and let that be that. I also click the box "add to favorites" every time I put a food on my list. Then if I ever eat it again, I can just click on the favorites tab and there it is. It definitely gets easier as you use the site more.
