How to add a created meal to my cronometer
Hi @Scott ,
Have you created a custom recipe? Once you have created a custom recipe, you can then add it to your diary as you would any other food. On the web version, select "Add Food" on your diary screen. Then enter the name of your food in the text search box. You can filter your search by using the custom tab to find your custom foods and recipes.
On your mobile app, you can add your recipe to your diary by selecting the + in the bottom middle of your screen. Then choose "Add Food" and enter the name of your food in the text search box. You can filter your search by using the custom tab to find your custom foods and recipes.
As always, any and all postings here are covered by our T&Cs:

But how can you delete or Can you delete from the "Your Custom Foods" list??? I watched tutorials but see nothing where you can delete if you make a mistake, often an option elsewhere. I love this app but in areas it is not too user friendly. Thanks
Hi @CronometerPaul , you sure can delete a custom recipe.
If you are using the Website version of Cronometer, go to the foods tab and choose your food from the custom foods list on the left hand side. Then, choose the settings menu in the top right corner to delete or retire the food.
Retiring your food will retain any entries of this food in your diary but remove it from your custom foods list, while deleting the food will remove it from your list as well as any diary entires you may have used it for.
On your mobile app you can delete a custom food on the foods tab. On Android, tap the Red x, and on iOS swipe the food to the left.
I had to actually click on the orange bar (or so I thought) which for a few times made me wonder if it was even clickable. But when I first clicked on Account Settings it just brought up my profile. So I found that I needed to click a drop-down arrow beside the cog in a screen lower down than the drop-down arrow by me email address, which I was at first thinking you meant. I don't believe this screen with bar code came up at first so maybe a few bugs but thanks to you I have solved my problem.
Thats right, it should look something like this:
The orange header on the web page is only clickable next to your email address which will provide you with a links to our user manual, account settings, and professional edition, as well as the option to log out.
