At breakfast I take my multiple vitamin, fish oil capsule, vitamin E and calcium pill. This was time consuming clicking each one on my nutrition tracker every day, so I made a "grouping" with all these and named it " Breakfast meds". Now with one click in my groupings all my breakfast meds are added to my breakfast at one time.

Something I realized I needed to do in order to be successful was to prelog my food for the whole day, preferably at breakfast and sometimes in bed before I get up.
I pretty much eat the same breakfast M W F, a different breakfast Tu Th, another breakfast on the weekends. My lunches follow a similar pattern. This also helps me create a shopping list.
In my Favorites list on the Food Tracker, I created groupings for these different days and labeled them "Breakfast - MWF", "Lunch - MWF", etc.
I have done all the major weight loss systems and failed, including Sparkpeople, but this tip alone seems to really be working this time. After I created the initial groupings, it takes me about 5 minutes a day to enter in my food for the entire day, including what I swap out of the original menu.
