Hi,

I am brand new to the group. How do you add what you have eaten to the nutrition tracker? I looked at the youtube, but my screen looks different.

I agree, nothing trumps a food scale. Weight Watchers sells a good one for under $30.

Yep...good to have an eyeball equivalent...although many find that nothing trumps a food scale.

If you do not have a scale, 4 oz of meat is about the size of a deck of cards. That is probably about the size of half of most chicken breasts.

I agree with Don also. I have a scale and use it all the time. I have wore out one and on my second. I use it for all my foods.

When you bought the chicken breast, I'll bet there was a total weight on the package...? I'd divide that by 5 to have the approximate weight of each chicken breast.

Also consider, if you want to take care to measure your food intake, buying a food scale to better measure your food.

A trick I often use to find food that is "close" to what I'm eating is to search in SparkRecipes and once I find something you can choose to add anything in SparkRecipes to your food tracker.

The food tracker is definitely one of SP's most popular features!

An enterprising, helpful member of SP has taken the time to create a video on how to use the SparkPeople Food Tracker. This might be helpful for new members wishing to track their food...which can be immensely helpful!

www.youtube.com/watch?v=vB4D3kg7Bik

and yet ANOTHER version available HERE:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zbSKX22tuA

If one looks up SparkPeople at YouTube, you will find a wide range of other videos related to to various additional features of SparkPeople also:
