Yes, I love using the Groupings - it really helps cut down on the tracking time plus helps me be able to plan ahead for things I might need.

You can also create groupings of those items so they're permanently saved :)

I have recently simplified the way I track nutrition.
It dawned on me that I pretty much eat some combination of the same 20-25 foods most days.
So I entered them all as one balanced 1300 calorie breakfast then I can just do one copy to the next day and make modifications if I don't eat exactly the same quantities.
If I don't eat any of an item I change the quantity to zero instead of removing it. That way it stays on the list when I copy to the next day so I don't have to enter it again I can just change the quantity.
I find this so much easier and less time consuming than selecting each item for each meal throughout the day. I only I have to enter the things I eat each day that aren't in my regular 25. If I exercise I eat 1600-1700 calories a day so most days I am increasing quantities or adding additional items. The 1300 calories is just my baseline.
I don't worry about individual meals if I just stick to the list I know that my overall day will be good.
And I automatically have a grocery list with all my staples!
