Try getting it right when you live in China... I usually have to go back (or forward) a day to get where I really am. I am 12 hours ahead of Eastcoast US time... Crazy!!! HAHAHAHA

I don't see any option to change the time on FitDay. That is kind of a bummer.

How do you go back and fourth a day, that's a hassle but it's better than not putting down the food you eat.

They need to add the time and password change options.

Yeah. I am thankful that fitday exists, but it can definitely use some improvement. My complaint is that there really isn't a large database of food information, at least compared to a lot of other websites that offer nutritional info without a caloric tracking option.

Anyone know mac alternatives to fitday?I've never tried these, but here are some programs for the Mac:

http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/4848

Edit: I'm actually trying the program from the first link [Diet Sleuth] and it seems very similar to FitDay. It has a boatload of pre-entered foods and has an option to edit foods or add or you own foods. It's 35 bucks, though.

At the top of the sreen it will tell you the (todays) date... on either side of that there are a << or >> symbol that can take you to the previous day (or the next one)!!!
Sometimes I have problems with the "custom food" thing changing up my amounts too. But hey... yeah Fitday has it's little problems, but do any of us really want to add all that up by hand.... I'm to lazy (at least between my ears) and I am guessing most of you are too.

Yep. You have to pay for it, but it's only like 20 bucks, and it's much easier to use.

Umm, just click on those arrows on either side of the date.

I wouldn't be surprised if the pay version has all these options.

No. PPC Apple FTL. Apple Intel FTW! The new Intel Macs can dual-boot Mac OS X and Windows XP natively.

So the pay version has like subway subs and all different brands of milk, yogurt, tuna and stuff on it?

And I guess I can't just use the defaults, this soy milk I drink has alot more carbs less fat and alot less protein than the default on there... but I'm in Korea so like everything I buy is different...

You can find nutrition data for lots of restaurant foods on calorie king (http://www.calorieking.com)

If all else fails, just look up the nutrition info. on the restaurant's website and then add it to fitday as a custom food.

In general, if you are eating/drinking something that has a nutrition label on it, you should always use the info on the label rather than using fitday's generic entry for it, which may be way off.

yeah, everything I eat (except vegetables) is a custom food
