Does anyone know if there is a way to organize your custom foods (like alphabetical order)?
I'm a paleo eater so cook from scratch. All the actual food is listed as, say, C-green beans or P-pork chop etc, where C is crb, P is protein and F is fat. I also do an S for salada. Fitday will store foods alphaetically, bunching all the carbs together, under C then in alpha order within C.
I also am starting to save my main meals, one serving, for each day, by weeks, For example todays dinner will be curried salmon, so its listed as 4804-curried salmon, which means week 48, day 04. I add any side or salads plus breakfast foods come from the Cs and Ps which are already listed.
I only use fitday to get an accurate idea of nutritional input. I want around 75% of my calories from fat, about 20% as protein and 5% as carbs. But moderate protein (around 60-70 grams per day) and calories at 1800 a day or a bit less. Imagine doing this without fitday!
Once you set up your custom foods, its very fast to enter things. And you just enter as you go along, its always a work in progress.
regards from edella, and I hope this helps -- its one way to go
Mine are in alphabetical order automatically, but the thing that made the difference is that it only does that if you begin with a capital letter. The few I entered early on as lowercase are stuck at the bottom and not in order.
I'm using Fitday PC version 2. All of my custom foods begin with a capital letter. They are not alphabetized, but are listed in the order that I entered them. This is a pain. I wish that they could be sorted alphabetically. For me, this is the biggest drawback of Fitday.
FYI.. The following Forum threads are also questioning why Custom Foods is not sorting itself in alphabetical order:
Alphabetize Custom Foods
List Sort Order
Custom Foods Carry Over
Listing Food Alphabetically
I am active on the "Alphabetizer Custom Foods" thread ... FYI
