My Food Database
My Food Database lets you create your own list of foods. These can be foods you have not found in the main Food Database or the ones you consume regularly and do not want to keep searching for in the Food Database each time you are going to add them to My Menu.
To get to My Food Database, click the Add Food button in the main window and click the My Food Database tab. You will see this window:
The My Food Database tab has the same areas and uses the same navigation methods as the Food Database tab. For more info on the Food Database, see Food Database Tab. The difference is that here you can create and edit food entries via the extra buttons seen underneath the foods list.
Adding Food to My Food Database
You can add food to My Food Database by copying foods from the main Food Database. If the required food is not in the Food Database, you can create a new food entry.
You can edit information about any food in My Food Database (for instance, the name, serving size, nutritional information).
On food packages, caloric and nutritional values are usually based on 100 g quantities. However, we seldom eat exactly 100 g of a food, or we may prefer different measurement units such as ounces (oz). With Weight Loss Program, you can set a realistic default serving size for each product you eat regularly. If you do this, caloric value and nutritional information in the Nutrition Facts area of My Food Database will be shown for your usual serving sizeand in your preferred units instead of a nominal 100 g quantity. This makes it easier for you to track how much you actually consume.
To change the default serving size, just type the desired value into the Default Serving Size field and click OK.
To change the default serving units, select a serving unit from the list and click the Set Default button.
