It would be nice to be able to do a “sanity check” on the diary addition prior to actually entering it into your diary.

I find myself checking via the database first to find the appropriate entry for anything that is not already in my lists.

If the same nutritional data was displayed when adding food that was displayed when checking the food database then I wouldn’t have to access the database twice: once to find the appropriate entry then once again when I go through the “add foods” process.

If I don’t do that I have found on a number of occasions that I have entered a food that is not exactly what I intended.

Then: Because of the inability to DELETE FOODS FROM THE RECENT FOODS LIST I then end up with any number of USELESS ENTRIES IN THE RECENT FOODS LIST that I can't get rid of!

Check it before adding.

it's RIGHT there above the "size options"

right below the food name is "nutritional info" click that.
It will ask you if the info shown is correct... if it is accurate click yes, verify the data, close and log it if you want since it's right... if it's not click no.. you'll be asked if you want to correct the info or not.

Aha! Now I see the fine print. Thank you so much!

Ok. Now tell me how to delete items from my "most recent" foods list!

Can't currently be done. You CAN delete from most used... my foods (if you didn't share with the MFP database)... recipes... but recent foods is in theory the 100 foods you've used "most recently" for that meal slot (or across all meals depending on your settings) doesn't always sound like it IS the 100 most recent foods but I know because I tend to eat the same things for breakfast that the chocolate chip pancakes I had 6 months ago are probably still on my recent list.. haven't had them in that long but haven't logged enough "different" foods to breakfast to bump it from the list.
