Question Finding national brands

I am trying to log my eating but it is so hard when I cannot find the brands I use. Most of them are national brands but they are not here.
I'm tired of having to customize every ingredient I use.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Soon, please?
Lee

Once you enter a food into custom foods it stays there, you don't have to re-enter it. It can be pretty tedious but if you eat a lot of the same foods from week to week not terrible.

Nobody ever said this process was going to be easy. But it is effective. And it does get easier as Rubystars pointed out.

Another thing to consider is that brands change their formulas a bit from time to time. I looked up a national brand one time in fit day and found it, but when I looked at the label it was different. Can you imagine the headache of keeping all that updated for Fitday? It's more accurate if you can enter it yourself, that way if the formula changes you just edit the food really quick.

The old Fitday allowed a list of previously entered food, the newer version makes you go back and search by day. I like the old alphabetical list better, it is easier to use if you don't have to remember the exact day that you ate a particular food.

I went back to the classic view because the new version only shows 50 per page on the custom foods list and I can't just hit ctrl+f to find it.
