New with a Question
 
Hello all, i noticed on My Fitness Journal, the daily log is just one big list, is there a way to seperate it by each meal just to get a more clear understanding of what im eating? currently i am logging every seperate food from each meal and its just one big list, is this all there is to it ?

Hi Vitooch,

Welcome!

Currently there's no automated way to separate your food by meals. What some users do is to make a custom food with a heading like ************* or BREAKFAST (etc., use your imagination) and then enter that custom food at the end of every meal. That way it will show up as a line between meals/snacks, breaking them up.

Today, for instance, my food log reads something like this:

1/2 cup 2% milk
Total Cinnamon Crunch Cereal (it was a cereal day!)
Vitamin Supplement
******************** <---- this is my meal separator, I just entered it after I was done entering my food
Chicken breast, 3 oz., baked, broiled roasted
salad blend
********************
apple, raw, medium
********************

etc., you get the idea :) I often forget to log it as meals, but sometimes I remember.

Welcome to FitDay Vitooch!!!

I'm with taubele and also use *******'s because its a little more easier to organize that way.

yep, that's what I do, it works out great for me.

I don't use *********************.
I use _________________________, much much cooler.
