Fitday's the hardest for the first little while. Just stick with it. If you know all your foods that you will be eating just spend a solid chunk of time and load everything into the system. After you get that done you should be solid.

Once you get your most common foods loaded in there, it gets alot easier.

Also, another thing to keep in mind is that you shouldn't have to go haywire measuring everything. It is an estimation at best anyway, as long as you give an HONEST and CONSISTENT guess about the contents and quantities of your food you'll be ok. Don't stress and nitpick over the little things or it will be so laborious that you won't last.

It's with consistency that you are most successful on fitday.

My workout partner has lost over 35pounds so far since he stopped using gimmicky expensive weightloss supplements, and started using (and sticking to) fitday.

99% of what I eat is from the foods I entered myself. It makes things so much easier.

I used it for a while, but got sick of having to enter things myself so I just ballpark it. Plan things out pretty well and don't have much trouble with keeping myself under control.

Hell, even writing things out on a pad of paper takes about the same time as searching through FitDay for stuff.

There's nothing wrong with using paper and pen.

Yeah, I always add my most common foods in as custom, but even after you select foods that are not custom they are in your recent list, and are much easier to find.

When I'm cutting I usually have a pretty consistent eating regimen anyways so it's not that hard to keep track of.

sCarz ---> that's a great Avatar, I think 10 minutes just passed while I was in a trance staring at it.

I just don't like FitDay. I think it's really over-rated, to be honest.

Does it take that much time to use a pen and paper?

Does it take that much time to use a pen and paper?It takes like a minute to plug things into FitDay. I don't see the problem. And no, there is absolutely nothing wrong with keeping a nutrition journal. Pen and paper works.
