have you tried turning the meal plans on? you don't have to use them for everything [and they won't add to your totals until you tick off each item], but when you need something then you can just look at what is there and pick something that sounds good.

a slice of bread is going to be around 100 cals with at least a gram or two of protein. add a Tablespoon of nut butter and that's another 100 cals and close to 6 g protein. add a piece of fruit and that will be somewhere in the 50 -100 cal range and mostly carbs.
a 100 gram potato, baked has about 100 cals and 2 g protein. a cup of frozen broccoli has about 50 cals and 2 g protein. a slice of cheese has about 80 cals and 5 g protein.
oatmeal cooked in milk could be another good fit, especially if you added nut butter or pumpkin to the oatmeal.

-google first. ask questions later.

Is your daily calorie range 1200-1500? If so, is your worry that you have only eaten 706 calories for the day?

The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.

We really need more information to help.
Or to see your nutrition tracker. Let me know if you need the steps to make it public.

Many of our members receive a calorie range of 1200-1550.
If this is your case and you are approximately 500 calories below this---then you have only taken in 700 calories for this day. This would be a concern.

Is this accurate???
I am sure we can help more.

Unless you are recovering from bulemia/anorexia or are simply very hungry, I would not worry about it. Otherwise, though, I would just start paying attention to how much some of your favorite snack foods are and keeping them on hand for your low-nutrition days.

I really wish that I could find a "reverse" nutrition/calorie counter. For example - it's the end of the day and I still need:
494 Calories
81 carbs
9 fat
4 protein

What could I eat that would net his nutritional value?
