My personal goals are to eat healthier and cleaner, and I use the tracker to help me MANAGE that goal, not to help me ACHIEVE it.
It tends to help me avoid eating junk food, because I know when I eat something I am going to have to track it.
It helps me to look back over a period of time and determine if I'm really cheating often, or if I'm keeping on track overall, and if I'm regularly going severely over or under a certain macronutrient.
If you really need the tracker to help you determine what a healthy menu should be, you should probably turn on the meal planner. But in general, think of the nutrition tracker as one tool out of many that you should be using. Also keep track of the servings of fruits and vegetables, etc. I also agree with what others said about tracking fiber.
