I really am liking myfitnesspal to record my food/calorie intake. You really do have an extremely extensive list of foods - items that other sites don't list. Thank you for that! I wish, however, I could change portion size, say for crackers or light choc soy, from full portion to half portion - thereby cutting the calories in half for that item.

Hi there!
Cant you just put 0.5 instead of 1 in the amount box? e.g. i just had half an avacado in mt lunch so I put 0.5 in the box for the amount of the whole Hass avacado I had.
Sorry if im being dim : ) x

Hi
you can change it by changing the quantity from 1.0 cup to .5 cup for example. - to change from whole cup to half. Hope this makes sense and helps

It used to be possible to act fractions like 0.3 or 1.5, but since the last update, this possibility seems to have vanished. When I input 1.5, it was counted as 15! Very annoying, indeed! I hope this will be fixed soon, as it severely compromises the accuracy of the calorie calculation!sad

Since the last upgrade to what? Website? iPhone app? Android app?


Unless a wider range of quantity units is added to many food items a lack of fractions would cause me a real problem. I tend to weigh ingredients rather than measure them by volume so unusually, with the current food database, the base unit is 100g and I am entering some fractional multiple.
