I've created entries called "estimated calories" "estimated fat" etc. You just add it as if you're adding any other user-entered food, with the "add food not listed" under the Search button on your nutrition tracker. You can enter a "food" called "calorie" and make the entry for 1 calorie (ignore the other nutrients), then when you go to add what your totals are, just add that many "servings" of "calories" to your tracker.

So if your total comes out to, say, 1,235 calories for the day, enter 1,235 servings of calorie to your tracker, and that'll reflect what you've had that day. You can do this for any of the nutrients you want to track. :)

Thanks! Do you know how I create a single-purpose entry?

Sure. Just create a single-purpose entry that reads "1200 calories" or somesuch.

The tracker is for your use... use it the way it works best for you.

Hey everyone :) I've been on and off this site several times but I'm back for another round using the new book!

I use myfitnesspal to enter my food/ calories because it is so much easier than the mobile app for SparkPeople. I'm wondering if it's possible to just enter my total calories for the day on this site so I don't have to double enter. I miss the community here and the wonderful recipes and articles, so I'm really hoping to make this work.

Thanks for any help you can give me :)
