Default Recipe Builder plus other Suggested improvements

I'm a convert to Fitday from Weight Watcher's e-tools. I found WW recipe builders and tracking mechanisms quite good, but they limit the nutritional data to WW points only. Fitday is compatible with other diet programs and provides a complete breakdown of nutritional information.

I'm fairly new to Fitday and was also frustrated by the lack of a Recipe Builder. So far these are the improvements I would like to see incorporated; I might even pay for the Premium version if they are included:

1. Add a Recipe Builder, please
2. Review the units of measure and allow for teaspoons, tablespoons, cups, half cups, 1/4 cups for all items commonly used in baking. (check ww e-tools item by item).
3. Incorporate Net Effective Carbs into the summary pie-chart so that Low Carb dieters don't need to go to the exercise of scrolling down to the tables and subtracting fiber out from total carbs.

I do wish for the same things. Recipe builder would be great because I do mostly scratch cooking. I'd probably pay extra for it too.

Smile Details count

I am with "gattamom." For lunch today I "built" a salad that included a salmon burger (this had known details on the packaging) so I created a customer food. Then I added: ground flax seed, sunflower seed, pumkin seed, walnuts, almonds, some raw veggies, and mixed greens.

The only option that would work for me was the grams option. However I don't have a scale. I think that would best meet my need. I did not have a cup or a half cup of the nuts/seeds mentioned above.

I only signed up to the site last night so this is my first workings with the site. I am hopeful that Fitday will help me understand the calorie intake that I am getting.

I was recommended to this site.
Shalom and blessings to all

Me too.
