Listing Food Alphabetically?
 
I have used Fitday since it came out. I have LOTS of custom foods, I wish I could sort that list at least alphabetically it is so long, it takes me forever to find a recipe I entered a few years ago.

One really nice thing about FitDay PC is that it searches your custom foods--makes it much easier to find things.

:confused:

My custom foods are sorted alphabetically.

Well, whatever the case may be this thread may be of some help:

Barilla Spaghetti (10 ounces)
Bread, Multi-Grain, ARNOLD (1 slice) [^ Fiber, ^ Fe]
Bread, Whole Wheat, Organic, Kroger (1 slice)
Broccoli Florets, Frozen, Bird's Eye (1 cup is 87 g. = 30 cal) [^ Potassium]
Burger, Turkey, 93-7%, 6.7 oz., Shady Farms [^ Fe, ^ Cholesterol] seasoned with "Grill Time" hamburger->Na addition only
Burrito Shell, Plain, Ole [^^ Fiber, ^ Protein]

You say you've used FitDay "since it came out". Perhaps back then it didn't sort alphabetically, but sorted chronologically. Then when the site converted to alphabetical, the new settings were not applied to your account. In which case, it may just take a little "magic" from the IT guy to fix this. I think you need to inquire about this, because I can see it being intolerable the way it is right now.

You could also just do ctrl-f and search for the recipe that way?

My custom foods starting with capital letters are alphabetical. The few that start with a lower case letter are random. Try editing so they all start with a capital.

Good tip! I doubt many have noticed this. I didn't.

I have recipes entered in my custom foods as well. I list them like the data base, chili for example looks like this:

Soup, CAMPBELL'S, all the flavors I've ever eaten
Soup, HOMEMADE, chili made with ground beef
Soup, HOMEMADE, chili make with ground turkey
Soup, PROGRESSO etc etc.

Yes, the capitals make all the difference in how the list gets sorted, that's why I make the brand in all caps, that way all the products from one company are together. The comma's are sort of critical too.

I wish I could delete custom Foods. some of the foods I have listed I don't eat anymore... cheezy garlic bread... I miss it, but I don't eat it and I don't want to be reminded of how good it was/is... :)
