For something like green tea, which is mostly water, this can be done.

I start with "Water, bottled, non-carbonated, DASANI" and then "Customize this food" entering the name Green Tea and then entering the custom values for green tea (basically just the calories, sodium, and potassium levels because everything else is basically trace amounts).

Then I'll hit "Create this food". When you enter your custom food Green Tea into your food log, it will now show up as "water" if indeed you are tracking water as a custom nutrient.

Here's a link to the thread for how to do this process:

You can do this for fruit juices, but the values would be off since fruit juices are not basically 100% water. In that case, you can customize one of the many fruit juices that FitDay has in the database:

Think of food as fuel for the body instead of feeding emotions
