Secrets of Success

Food Tracking Rarely Eaten Foods



I have manually entered a food called X which I have ascribed 1 calorie per gram and that way if I know I have eaten 200 calories of a food that I don't plan to eat again or often, I can enter 200 grams of X and it will add 200 calories to my nutrition tracker. Doesn't track the other nutrients of course but right now calories are my main consideration.

  • Good Idea! I may try this for Golden Corral. I usually pick off their nutrition guide what I ate, then paste it into Excel, then remove the "g" or "mg" then total the amounts to see what I really ate (usually too much), but this method will make the entering part for the nutrition tracker much easier! - by WANNABEVERYFIT
  • Finally a really good secret I can use! I was always wishing that I could just enter the calories that I know I've just consumed. This is the way! Whoo hoo! Thank you, thank you! - by EASYRIDER1983
