Thumbs down Merging FD foods into one entry

There are some foods I eat in combination in the same ratios every time. Currently I have to select every component and enter it into my daily food log. It would be nice if I could consolidate these into one custom food. Is it already possible and I just haven't figured it out? Enter the data manually is time wasting and tedious. Any help?

I don't know of a way to merge nutrition information about several foods.

You probably know this somewhat tedious and painstaking method:

You could write down the information yourself from each food in the quantity you use (for example, 2 fried eggs, 2 pieces of toast, two slices of fried bacon), add them up and then manually enter them in a custom food. 'My fried egg breakfast' could be the name.

Then each time you have that breakfast, you can choose that custom food.

It takes a little time but if you really eat the same things a lot, it probably makes life easier. You won't have the vitamins, minerals, etc., carried along with it - but that is always the case with custom foods.

Do *you* have time for manually entering that much? Probably not as I suspect is true of most of us. The amount of coding it would take to add this feature is miniscule compared to the 10's of 1000's who could use this effectively. As I recall now, the reason I stopped using FitDay in 2011 was because it was too much of a PITA to manually enter so much stuff. As a moderator do you have any input to the Webmaster of this page?

Not really!

But maybe someone else will have a suggestion - we can only hope.
