Used this site for a while last fall but then stopped for so long that I could not remember my login and have had to start over! A little frustrating to lose my Custom Food list so I plan to stay with it this time.
Appreciate all the tips so far (would not have known to capitalize custom foods) and look forward to more. I don't have a lot to lose - goal is about 15 pounds - want to keep accountable with my calorie count.
I learned that it might be a good idea to calculate calories BEFORE I decide what to cook for supper. The after-the-fact calculation for the potato corn chowder we had for dinner turned out to be about 525 calories per serving!
Not surprising- it had bacon, cheese, whole milk and butter. I think that it is easier to limit my portion of the same I'm cooking for my family rather than make separate food. We don't always have this rich of a meal.
