Absolutely! I really hate tracking dinner, mainly because it is the most complex meal of the day for me. At breakfast and lunch, my food is pretty standardized so I can use groupings. Dinner tends to have way more ingredients and I like to play with food, so it isn't always the same. I'm going to make an effort to create groupings for dinners as well. Eventually I'll start repeating and I can just hit the group button. It does make it easier. Also, having my tablet or smart phone on hand makes tracking easier too.
Weekends are killer. Usually we do a potluck on Saturday with friends and then have a board game night. I so do not want to stop in the middle of a game to track my food. In the past, I've tracked at lunch time planning for what I'd eat at dinner-then adjusted any differences the next morning. Sometimes this helps too. Last weekend I totally blew it. If you can plan in advance it helps with calories too. Sometimes I'll play with the calories to see if it will work out for the day.
For a while, I used caloriecount.com but they are WAAAY strict on what you eat. You have to go for nutrients there- so it made tracking harder. I'm grateful that Spark makes it easier, at least here if you eat healthy, you don't have to get upset that you didn't make an "A" for the day or didn't get enough Iron or Potassium- which btw are a pain to get. Which is basically why I started tracking earlier-to plan for all those things. It helps though. It also helps you plan on eating something healthy so you can build up a craving instead of going on impulse at dinner. Dinner impulses are killer.
