adding a food to the database Hoffmannc — May 19, 2019 07:00AM PDT

I am trying to follow the instructions to add a food to the database. But I am not able to get to the end of the search. It is showing me food items that don't even remotely match my search & therefore the search list is going on forever. I can't get to the end of the search list to click add to the database. Is there an easier, quicker way to add to the database or even just to my personal database? I have purchased protein pancakes and protein cakes that I can't accurately add to my food diary.

Thanks for posting and sorry for any trouble. We may need to update the instructions as the Create a Food option has moved in the app. After tapping Add Food, you will be taken to search screen with your food lists. Tapping the + icon in the upper right will bring up several options, including Create a Food, which is adding a new food to the database.

Warm Regards,
