How do I add my own food? sandralevinson — Feb 01, 2017 03:50PM PST

I have foods that are different from the ones on the data base. Also, the quantities are different. I may eat less and there is no way to change the pull down options. Any ideas?

The “My Foods” list displays foods that you have added to the food database. If locally produced, homemade, or unusual foods are not already in our database, you can add them yourself to make MyFitnessPal’s database more complete.

MyFitnessPal will automatically add your “Frequent” or “Recent” food items to those lists in your diary, for easy reference. However, if you would like to to build your own custom list, we suggest using the “My Meals” feature.

For spacing purposes, those using MyFitnessPal in languages other than English may find the contents of the Recent, Frequent, and My Foods tabs combined in a single tab labeled “Recent” or “Food”
