One more thing I created a food item that I call AAABadBoy. If I eat something that is a no-no, I enter it as a serving of AAABadBoy which drives the bad food values up and motivates me to go conservative for the rest of the day. It works for me.

Hi,

Thanks for the advise, will add it one at a time. Luckily I am a creator of habit too, so it shouldn't take that long.

We live in South Texas and do not have readily access to processed food from South Africa. I look for the closest equivalent; Jerky for Biltong. I also use the "Add a Food Not Listed" on the "Add a Food" page to create items that go into "my Favorites" tab. For example my wife makes a pie modified from a Weigh Watchers recipe. I now have it in my favorites as "Lettie's Pie". Hope this will help.

Hi, and WELCOME!!

Sorry, there is no easy way. Unless you only eat fresh produce ;)

It gets easier doing it over time. Be sure to add everything you manually put in to your favourites. After a while you have everything you always eat in there. (especially if you're a creature of habit, like me)
Don't let it put you off. It is a great tool to have and use.

Wishing you the best on your weight loss!

Hi everyone,

I am new to sparkpeople, been using it since last week Thursday.

It seems that most SA foods we have to add? Is that how you guys do it? Or is there an easier way?
