Hi, I noticed that fitday.com does not allow you to construct food out of existing ingridents. For example my breakfast sandwich is 2 slices of bread, 4.5 oz of ham + 2 eggs + 1 slice of cheese.

I could of course figure out individual component calories and macros but what a pain in the arse!

Anyone knows of a site that allows meal customization by components? (I wonder if I just gave a way an awesome business idea ;) )

You can do that on fitday if you download the full version. It's available on bittorrent, but you can go find it yourself.

the other option is what I do for certain 'constant meals I eat'

i put it into fitday online like normal, then make a new custom food and just add up all the macros.
its a little ghetto, but it does speed stuff up.

A guy once posted an alternative to Fitday and it did combine the meal like you want. I think it was Nutri something. He said that it was better than Fitday and that is the one he used. Try a search because I can't remember the name right now.

I pick a day in the past with no food entries, make up the food, then programme it in as a custom food from the macros.

If you eat that all the time just add the individual components, and make the whole meal a custom food. It takes like 30 seconds to do that.

I was bored and I'm not ready to go to bed, so here's the thread.

It's the last post. I'm pretty sure that was the site I'm thinking of.

I guess the consensus is that adding up a few numbers to make a custom food never hurt anybody. It's what I do as well.

Thanks for the thread "Cut150". I'm gonna check it out. As far as adding up all macros - yeah it could take a bit of time or less than a bit of time. But the point is that technology should allow humans to be more efficient :)

It's like when you build a house - you don't go cutting down trees and making 2x4s. You buy trusses and premade cinder blocks - then put them together ;)

OMG the http://www.nutridiary.com kicks ass! I can build my meals - from componens!!!!! Woohooo.

That feature is avilable in the full version of fitday. They make the free online version annoying to encourage people to purchase the full version.

you can use www.nutridiary.com to make up a 'meal' and do it that way
