I tend to eat the same foods often and have found that the food groupings option in the nutrition tracker saves me time. Rather than searching for individual items I simply find the group and click once.

Itís really easy to keep track of your meals when you do it in food groupings. I try to make 4-5 menus for each meal and then rotate them through out the month,. When they get old I add new ones but by having that menu placed in the food grouping it is just one click and everything that I ate for that meal is listed.
Setting up shop with the food journal takes time, but once you've made lists of "favorites" and "food groupings", it can usually be done in less than 10 minutes a day. Once selected, the groupings can easily altered by adding or subtracting a food to that particular meal.
Nutritional tracking is vital, at least until one's healthy eating habits are well-ingrained. It's also a good way to see changes that need to be made.
