it looks as though there will be no new changes as far as supplements are involved.

Thumbs up Vitamin, Fish Oil supplements

Am I missing these or are they hiding in some unknowable category?

You can add them as a custom food.

How do you add a multivitamin to your custom food list when the custom food wants everything in percentage, and the label on the bottle is in mcg/mg etc... Any suggestions?

Default VItamins

Hello. If I am taking vitamins, how do I enter them, so they show on the chart. Do I go to foods? I couldnt find vitamins there.
Thank you

I made a custom food - serving size 1 tab - and entered all the vits&mins there. I take one a day, so I usually click on "my recent foods" and add it to today's foods that way (as I do for a Vit D supplement I take).

I have to put my two cents in and agree with everyone else. As we diet, and are trying to do everything we can to make what we eat count, it takes a lot of time and effort to be as accurate as possible. When we restrict our calories, even at a healthy level, it is nearly impossible to get RDA without taking supplements, and not enough of the vitamins etc., are listed in the create a food option. I do not think that adding at least a few more components would be that difficult on the programming end of fitday? I'm sure you will not be able to cover everything, but by looking at a few over the counter multivitamin labels you can get a more accurate list of what you are missing & add them for us? PLEASE.
I know it would be greatly appreciated by the commuity here!!!

Thank you!!

Default Thank you for your B-5 suggestion

I had to get around this issue by finding a food high in B5, shiitake mushroom, and editing it to be a calorie free food and removing it's other nutrients. I suppose this works OK, but I would really like it if FitDay would make a space on the nutrition label to enter in a %RDA for Pantothenic acid.

This is a great idea! I just started taking B-complex and would also like to add Pantothenic Acid as a custom food. I hope that FitDay will address this, as this is the only Vitamin/Mineral left off the custom food label.

I really like your idea about the shiitake mushroom modification, and will use this for my B5 addition.
