Food selection database needs improvement
Often I cannot find very simple things or I am restricted to strange options when I do find things. Example = cheese enchiladas pretty simple? Right, I can only find ones from Weight Watchers. This is not good. I love the reports but hate the food database. I am going to switch to another log product because I know there are better options. Example Training Peaks software food selection has branded foods and more often what I eat. Example Greek Yogurt is not in the database here... come on really???

Do you use the customised lables? The closest thing I came to for home made pizza was, hambergur on a pizza crust with pizza souce. My diatition told me to just go with what I feel would be the closest to what you feel calories would be. I don't understand why they have so many different listings for the fruits or vegtables. I think it just depends on where they get their information to add to this. Wishing you luck in finding what you are looking for.

Yes! please add all the Lean Cuisines to your food db - the spa collection for instance like salmon with basil. thanks

Guys, Lean Cuisine and Healthy Choice frozen dinners change their formulas once in a while. The calorie count changes and some of the nutrition changes too. One I had been eating for a while that was around 280 calories jumped up to 300 calories in the new formulation. Some went down. If you have a custom food for it in your list you can quickly edit this information. Don't expect fit day staff to do all your work for you with branded foods,.

With non-branded foods (like looking up a cheese enchilada) I agree with you that there should be a standard entry for it (but it should be specific about the weight of it so you can know how many servings your portion are).
