Five options is a good start, and I track Carbs, Protein, Fat, Cholesterol, and Fiber.

However, an additional 10 slots would be optimal. I would like to add my vitamin intake, sodium, the specific fats, and sugars.

That would make the site/app much more functional. Presently, I have to pull up each additional item separately in the reports section which is a pain in the butt.

Please add this feature!

If you have access via one of the smartphone apps they have a summary screen on there that tracks all 17 metrics that are available to track in MFP.

I guess this is an unusual request: I would love to track my vitamin K usage. THAT would be fantastically helpful for me. It's hard enough to diet, but since most helpful diet foods also contain lots of leafy green veggies, it would help tremendously.

I would definitely like to see at least fiber and sugar in the web app. Its much easier for me to work on the computer than on the smartphone. I haven't even looked at the smartphone app yet.

for the web app try
food > settings
pick which 5 optional columns you wish to see, they can be fiber and sugar if you want. But you are limited to 5 on the web

agreed, need more slots or add the mobile summary screen to the web based app.

I agree also. Getting proper nutrition is very important. To be able to track all the needed micro nutrients is very helpful. And, to be able to set the maximum or minimum would be most helpful for those who track their sodium or sugars or the like.

Look forward to seeing these in your next update.


Thanks,

I currently have Calorires - Carbs - Fat - Protein - Sodium - Potassium

and I REALLY want to ad fiber since I am low carbing, I want to see how much fiber I am getting, but I can't find one to remove. Obviously Calories/carbs and fat are must have.

Since I am sodium sensative (or at least I have been before I started a low carb diet) I want to watch my sodium intake, and I have found that you should ALWAYS have more potassium than Sodium to keep healthy and keep your blood pressure down. Preferably 2x post to sodium. So I really need these numbers too.

Now that I no longer eat Banana's I am struggling with my potassium intake, but I do get Avacado's, some flax seed, cup of unsweetened almond milk and even Salmon has some potassium, but it is hard to get 3,500mg a day. Really hard.

So please, if you can, let us track an additional nutrient or two.... or ten. That would be GREAT!!!!

Even the mobile app doesn't track everything I want it to. I'm considering unlinking my BodyMedia because while the food database there isn't as broad, I can track a lot more micronutrients (Magnesium, vitamin E, several of the B vitamins, Selenium and Caffeine).

This person is also interested in tracking caffeine. The thread itself points vaguely to the desirablility of just a blank or variable slot in which one could conceivably write in the nutrient one wanted to track, and then inputting one's own foods write in what those values and have a useful way to customize for one's specific needs.

Yes, I agree and would also LOVE it if we could see at a glance, as many of those nutrients as possible! I just found this app yesterday and it is amazing!! Why haven't I heard of this before?

Thanks again for considering to add this very important and helpful feature!

I really wish you could track more than 5 at once also!! Too annoying to have to change and save all the time.

I don't have nor have a use for a Smart phone, but my friend does have one and its quite awesome how you can scan barcodes and type in how much you ate. As I only use the internet on my home Desktop computer I'd like the option to view it all too, even if I had to scroll sideways I wouldn't care.

I find myself changing my diary items several times a day just to see what I am at in relation to the 8-9 things I want to keep track of.

Go to Livestrong.com

They have far more options and do the same thing as MFP
