You could weigh and measure each individual thing.

But I like BUNNYKICKS' idea. Just create an entry called "1 bite" and put 50 calories on it and just use that.

If you're not doing this 20 times a day, this kind of approximation will be absolutely fine. And it'll clearly show you how often you do this as you can see exactly the same thing popping up in your tracker all the time ... if it's habit.

Chips, for example, often have a serving size as approximately so many chips, so one serving might be 12 chips or something. You could either divide all the nutrition facts by 12 and that's your number, or enter the nutrition info for "12" items instead of 1 serving and then when you add it to your tracker, only add 1. Or go by weight, a serving is 1 oz or 28 grams or whatever and then measure a specific weight of snack (1/4 oz, perhaps) and add it that way.

well, i suppose one thing you could do is create your own item, call it "one bite" and put the calories at, say, 50. and then just enter a "one bite" entry every time you do this. not very scientific or accurate but would keep you accountable/keep track of how often you are doing this.

I try really hard to eat only healthy foods, but when im REALLY craving something I try to overcome the craving by only eating one bite. For example I had one chip with dip on it today because I wanted some really bad. How would I track something like that? Im not good at math.
