Best Practices – Quick Calorie

Here’s a few tips that I’ve discovered using the app

  • Use the app to track other things like how many glasses of water you drink – to add a “0″ entry to ‘Today’s Entries” just type in the description, say “glass of water”, then tap “Start Combo” followed immediately by “Finish Combo”
  • As you enter item descriptions, think about how you will want to find it later on the “My List” screen – for example, if you enter “turkey enchilada” it will show up down in the “T”s on the list, but if you enter “enchilada, turkey” it will show up in the “E”s
  • Consider adding the serving size to you description – for example, “beef, tenderloin, 4 oz”
  • Consider things that are substantially the same and make a single entry to cover more than one item – for example, butter and oil are about the same calories, so make one entry for “butter / oil, 1 tbsp”
  • Like the previous tip, most cheeses are 100 Calories per oz, so just make a single listing like “Cheese, 1 oz”
