Definitely.....already got it going.  ; )  I am definitely very excited about the new food journal.  I think that it is a very important tool in weight loss and am looking forward to utilizing the information that I glean from its use.  Hooray!  Food Journals are here!

I think the food diary is fantastic! I like the way it calculates the calories for you. Lol just wish it contained more Aussie grocery items, I have to keep entering all the data myself :p Still the best one I have seen online to date :)

I don't have the excuse of it not working, I'm just a big coward.  But I'm thinking about using it.  (I need to approach this with baby steps.)

I'm using it, but having problems finding foods that I "know" should be there - like "raw, vine ripened tomatoes" - I must not have entered the right thing to get it.  When I entered "tomato", it came up with all the canned varieties, raw orange and raw yellow, but nothing that resembled "fresh raw red vine ripened".

Also I couldn't find "sirloin steak" - I can't possibly be the only one that eats sirloin steak.  I found plenty of "round", "chuck", "T-bone", "porterhouse" - where's my sirloin??  

Dinner rolls?? You got it - couldn't find THAT either........

What am I doing wrong - am I not categorizing things properly or what????? Help..I really want this to work for me......

Yes, I see that some things aren't there.  You can add them to  your foods or you might want to put in suggestions for additions.

I have experienced the same thing Barb.....but as I go I just enter the things that I am eating into the "My Foods" section and I believe that before long, not only will more foods be added to the default listings, but that I will also have most of my typically eaten foods saved as well.  I like the 'notes' portion as well because if something deviates from what is listed a bit or if I want to make a note to myself about something that I have gleaned from keeping the journal....that's my little place to do that.

I also noted that the shorter and more general a term regarding food is, the more different things will pop up.....such as "taco" will yield me more results than I would get with "steak taco" and then I select the one that most closely resembles what I have had, especially with places that I am not certain of the true nutritional contents, like some smaller Mexican restaurants in town....just as long as the food is comparable in my case.  

Trudie!  I love how you have incorporated even the spices into your Food Tracker.  On items made at home, I shall attempt to do the same.

I'm new to this forum, and I just started my food diary yesterday.  I hope I can keep up with it, because it's really an eye opener, and I've noticed that it makes me re-think some of my food choices!

I am signed up for it.  Just having a hard time remembering to use it.  It is also frustrating when you can't find what you are looking for but everything else is there.  Either that or I don't know what I am eating.
