A good practice is to name your manually entered foods by the main title rather than the first thing you think of. For instance, Missy made some low fat/cal blueberry muffins and I forgot this rule when I entered them. When I go look for them later, I may not even remember I called them "Missy's" something or other, but I would remember that they were muffins. So instead of "Missy's blueberry muffins", I need to change it to "Muffins, Blueberry, Missy's, 1 muffin". That way, I'll remember where to look for one thing and when I get there I'll only have to sort through the muffins, of which there will only be a few, instead of all the stuff I already entered as "Missy's something or other". The same with everything else. Instead of
"Chicken Sausage, 1 link", I now do "Sausage, Chicken, 1 link" and then for a serving size I use the weight in grams.
Just some ideas and any others would be appreciated.
