I actually agree that the food search on this site could be better. What the other sites have is the ability to search everyone's custom foods, and chances are that someone else has eaten that exact same food and plugged it in already. This is especially true with commercially prepared foods and name brand items. Now I understand that nutritional information on food products changes from time to time, but so long as a date is assigned to the entry, to give a frame of reference then it shouldn't be a problem to update over time. I'm not sure why fitday doesn't have this feature, it would certainly make using the site a little easier. It could be set up as an option when you create a custom food, just check (or not) a little box that says "Share custom food with public domain?" And if the system cannot handle that completely then maybe a select few individuals from each region could be invited to do so. Just a thought.
