list of foods imtired150 — Jan 04, 2018 04:55PM PST

can i make a list of foods by scanning food in my pantry so when I have x calories and y protein left I can make the best choice? I dont need a frequent list because I am new to MFP. I need my own data base to access easily.

Thank you for taking the time to contact us and for the great suggestion. We will definitely consider adding this option for a future update.

For now, what you may want to try is scanning the item into your diary and then saving it as a meal. If you would like to just build your own list for future use, you can scan items, save them as a meal, and then delete them from your diary.

You can save one or several items as a meal. For example, if for breakfast, you have eggs, toast and coffee, you can add all these under breakfast and save it as a meal. The next time you have the same thing, you can add it to any place in your diary directly from your “meals” or “my meals (online)” list. If you like, you can save just one item as a meal.

Instructions for creating a remembered meal are here:

We hope this helps. Please let us know if you have any other problems or questions. We wish you all the success in reaching and maintaining your health and fitness goals.

Warm Regards,
MyFitnessPal Staff
