Record Nutritional Information

This Sparked Me!

When I buy something Ive never bought before, when I bring it home or eat it I look to see if it's on the list of foods, if not, I enter the information. It helps me know how many calories, fat, protein and carbs I have left during the rest of the day.

    I also will do this. If I do find that someone else has entered the food in the tracker under shared information, I will go through the nutrition listed to see if it matches what is on the package.
Often times people only track calories and not sodium, vitamins and other things that I track on my nutrition tracker. Great idea.

    I do this as well.

    Thanks for sharing, it makes a lot of sense to enter the info right away!

    Great idea PLUS it makes sure you know the serving size this way because by doing this many times I thought the whole package was a single serving but when I read it close and enter it I find out there are two or more servings in the package.

    Great idea!

    I do the same thing! Great job!
