If you use the Nutrition Tracker regularly, you probably already know that you can save foods you eat frequently to your "Favorites" list. This makes it much faster to add foods to your tracker every day. But now it's even easier to keep track of what you eat most often.
The new "Recent" tab on the Food Tracker automatically generates a handy list of all the foods you've recently tracked so you can add them in an instant. Since so many people eat the same foods day to day, this is another option for making it easier and faster to track your calories and nutrition.
To add a recently tracked food to your Nutrition Tracker, visit your food tracker page. Click on the "Recent" tab (next to Search) and you'll see a list of your foods. Simply check the box next to the food(s) you want to add to your tracker, then click "Add Selected Foods to Tracker" at the bottom.
The most recent quantity of the food is already noted, but can be changed easily on the same screen. Be sure sure change both the Quantity and the Measure columns to accurately track what you've eaten.
Finally, you can select which meal to add the food to by using the Meal dropdown menu to the far right. If you'd like to add several different foods to the same meal all at once, simply select the "Change all meals to" dropdown menu at the bottom right before clicking the "Add Selected Foods to Tracker" button.
We're constantly working to improve the Nutrition Tracker because it's been proven that people who consistently track what they eat are more likely to successfully manage their weight.
