I agree. If you know that you had two ounces of shrimp salad and you know roughly what it contained better to guess over than under. grab your mayo jar at home and type in 1tsp mayo, shrimp counts for almost nothing but if you can find it on the tracker say you had like 1 grilled shrimp...ect...the more you can tabulate ounces of stuff the better chance you have to note it at the end of your day. good luck.
What is right is not always popular, and what is popular is not always right.
I agree with DREAMWEAVER you can guess...sometimes I will look up something similar on the tracker and then use that. The other thing you can do if it is possible with out being too obvious is spit the food back out after you have tasted it...I know that if you are in a classroom of people this may not always be possible and your instructors might not like it but sometimes if you can probably do it discretely. You will find the best thing that is right for you.

I am new to tracking food that I eat every day. My question is, how am I supposed to track the bits of food that I taste in school and for my job? I can't very well figure the calories for tastes here and there. What do you do?
