I run into the same problem too sometimes, especially if I eat out at a local restaurant that has no nutritional info. I try to estimate as best as possible and use what is listed on the tracker. I try to play it safe and overestimate the calories etc then underestimate it.

Count each ounce of chicken, turkey, meat as 50 calories...4 ounces looks like a deck of cards.
Count each veggie as 40 calories a cup
Count each fruit as 70 calories, except bananas at 110 and 1/2 avocado 300
Count skim at 90 1/2 cup, cottage cheese 90 1/2 cup
walnut eat 4 s day to protect your heart..dont bother to count

I usually try to find something in the tracker that is similar. Sometimes if I'm eating at a friends house it's difficult to know what ingredients they use in their food, so I usually just guess and estimate my calories. Some things are easy to figure out, others can be a bit challenging. If you're a little bit off it won't hurt you in the long run. But if there are foods you're eating everyday and you're unsure you might want to find a way to enter the nutrition information on your own into the tracker.

What do you do when you want to log your food but you do not know how many calories are in the food your eating?
