the engineers need to add a feature so I can set my own macronutrient targets (carbs, fats, protein)

also they need to add a feature so that I can “quick add” macros, not just calorie numbers. This app would be much better if I could go about my day by making entries such as

Breakfast:
15g (fat)
75g (carb)
35g (protein)

Lunch:
20g
95g
45g

Dinner:
20g
150g
55g


point being, the way myself, and many others track our dietary intake is strictly through macronutrient count. There needs to be a way to simply adjust the macros (quick add/subtract) \


cheers! hopefully someone sees this and takes action. We’ve been waiting on this for years

You can set your own macros already under Goals. Just click change goals and pick custom. :-)

As far as quick add calories, I kind of see where you are going with this. But, I honestly don't think enough people would use it enough for it to make sense to put multiple entries instead of just calories. You are better off just making a quick recipe in your own database and added it; especially if you aren't going to do it that often. But, I think it WOULD be very useful.

no making a custom entry is annoying and too time consuming to do often. It would be much better if we could just adjust are macros throughout the day so as the day goes on we know how much of each macronutrient we have left before hitting our goal mark

She meant, add to the food database an entry called MY Protein (or whatever you want to call it) make it 1g protein. Then use it to add your protein. Do that for fats, carbs or whatever.

This isn't likely to get implemented anytime soon....there are thousands of good ideas in the works - supposedly - and they aren't being done quickly...so as a work-around, try to fashion something for yourself that you can use...it takes all of a minute to do.

they are even already in the general database

search "quick add" and carbs, fat and protein are all there, add each in the numbers you need to quick add the meal without seeking each ingredient from the meal.
Log'em once and copy from day to day or use from recent /most used
