Trying to use but can't find what I need...
 
Ok now that I figured out how to input my meals I am having trouble finding what I eat to input...for instance 1 fried egg or cooked natural bacon (natural is the uncured kind). I found bacon but it says it's cured raw is that what I am supposed to click on?
How do you input what you eat when you cook your egg in the bacon drippings?
Please forgive me for asking I have never used any type of calculator for food before so I am very lost & flustered! :confused: :confused: :confused: :confused:

Yes, it does seem a bit complicated at first - they all do. :agree:

For the bacon, I would (and do) just click on the cured raw.
And for the egg, I click on "egg, whole" (2, or however many), then I just do an estimate if I have used the bacon fat. But if it's from the same bacon, I would not use any extra, because it has already been counted.

Then, don't forget, once get your breakfast figured out, if you eat bacon and eggs regularly, you can type 'em in as a Bulk Entry - Single Meal. Check the FAQ sticky for how to do that. I don't mind admitting it took me a LOT of help from the webmaster to figure that one out! But once I did, it has saved me hours and hours.
