Custom Food is a user-friendly tool that lets you quick-add specific amounts of carbs, protein, and fat instead of an entire recipe. Each entry automatically saves to your personal account for future use.
There are a couple of ways that you can use this tool:
Are you unable to find a particular or special item food in the database but you know the nutrition info? You can enter that nutrition info here!
Are you cooking from scratch and don't want to create a recipe? You can calculate the macros for a single serving of your recipe and enter those here! Or if you are using a recipe that you already know the macros for - like from a blog - you can enter those here as well.
Do you have a favorite go-to meal you like to eat? Like an on-the-go breakfast you eat each day that consists of a latte, banana, and protein bar? Calculate the total macros for your whole meal and save it as a Custom Food so you can add it easily when meal planning for the week.
You can also delete a saved Custom Food entry at any time. Remember all Custom Foods are automatically added to your Favorites! You can find your Custom Food list in your app here.
StaxTip: Since all Custom Foods have a serving unit of “custom serving”, try including your custom serving size amount (i.e. “1 cup”) in the name of your Food .
