Foods I add to my diary frequently Ckmucci — Jan 22, 2017 01:25PM PST

I'm hoping someone can tell me how to access a "frequently added" list for foods I use all the time? The "recently added" does not do the job. It will have a few of the items but not sure how that is populated. I was going to just try to add them to "My Foods" but apparently that's for food not in MFP. Please help!! And thank you:))

Hey thanks for posting your question. The My Foods list will show the food entries that you have created yourself but is not intended to be used as a favorites list. The closest thing to a favorites list would be the Meals list. Here you can save individual entries or foods that you often eat together as a meal for faster logging in the future.

To create a Meal, just log the items you’d like to combine to one section of your diary, then:

On the Web

-Click “Quick Tools” then “Remember Meal”
Give the meal a name.
-Click either the green “Save Meal” button to save as a new meal, or click the green “Or, Replace An Existing Meal” button to do as the name suggests.

In our iOS apps (version 5.3 and later) and our Android app (version 3.1 or later)

-Tap the “Edit” or Pencil button
-Tap the selection box next to each item you’d like to include in the remembered meal. You can select items from the same diary meal, or include items from multiple meals.
-Tap the “Save Meal” button (fork and knife around a plus symbol)
-Give the meal a name and tap “Save New” or tap “Save as..” to replace an existing meal (iOS apps, tap the check mark)
-To quickly create a meal from all of the items logged in one diary category, tap the “More” button under that meal.

When you are logging food in the future, you’ll find your remembered meals in the “Meals” tab of the food search screen.

Weird, the recent and frequent lists work fine for me. (not an employer and everything I say IMHO)

Keep it mind that it is meal-specific by default, although you can disable that and search all meals. That might be your confusion.

Also, if you eat the same meal often Remember Meals can be a winner http://myfitnesspal.desk.com/customer/portal/articles/162346
