Its very convenient to be able to save a "Favorite" so when I add that food again to my diary I don't have to look it up among many variations in the database.
Is it also possible to save the serving size with a favorite?
Unfortunately at this time do not offer a way to save the serving sizer, but this is a great idea, so we will look into it in the future!

Thanks for being open minded. If I could save serving sizes with my Favorites it would reduce the work in using the web site.
Have a great one!
I'm not sure if I'm having the same issue. I've added 'Avocado, Black Skin, California Type' from the database to my favorites. There are a bunch of serving sizes from which I can select to enter the amount except for "1 gram." The only weight option is '1 each' with a weight of 136 grams. My avocados vary anywhere from 180 to 210. I'm forever having to enter and change. I can't seem to add "1 gram" as a serving size. Is there a way I'm not aware of? If not, may I suggest that "1 gram" be a standard serving size on all database items? Thanks.
Hi @Cowboy03 if a food item has a gram value associated with it, you should by default be offered serving size defaults of grams and ounces.
How do you get "g" to be the default. No matter what I do to try and set "g" as the default, it always reverts back to "each - 136 g" the next time I enter an avocado.
Hi @Cowboy03 once you use a serving size, it should default to the last used serving type. So, if you used "g" for a serving size once, then go to add another serving it should default to "g" again. I just tried it and it seems to be working for me! Let me know if this isn't how your account is behaving!
Many times over the past few weeks, I've tried what you suggested to set "g" as the default. Each time I tried, it reverted back to "each - 136 g." I tried again after your comment to no avail. I've also tried removing avocado from my favourites then re-saving as a favourite after making the unit change. That did not work either. Any other suggestions?
Hi @Cowboy03 thanks for following up. I asked around about this, as it seemed strange to me that this is working for my account but not yours. Sounds like I underestimated our wise developers, and Cronometer actually learns from your input. So, it may not remember your serving size right now, but as you use Cronometer more and more and start using the same serving size for specific foods, it will start to remember your preferences.
Thanks Hillary. I'll be patient and try that.
@Cowboy03 yep it does work, takes some time of repeat entries...funny story, I've been using Cronometer since February and "banana, fresh" still appears at the top of my list of foods even though I have never ever never eaten one (I'm on low carb). Maybe the banana lobby is very powerful? LOL

Hi Vegas Tortoise, thanks for letting me know it does work if I'm patient. It is frustrating when they tell you that it will work "this way" and it doesn't pan out. You get kinda sceptical on the second suggestion. LOL Having said that, I do believe they are doing their best to give us the right answer the first time.
@VegasTortoise that's strange that the banana is listed there! Do you have it marked as a favorite by any chance? Or have it listed in any recipes you use? What tab is it showing up in? All, or Favorites? Do you copy and paste foods often or add foods directly from the food search?
@Hilary I honestly don’t mind the banana 😎 but since you asked:
not marked as favorite or part of any recipe, showing up in all-tab and I either search or use my most common food combos as recipes
Actually by now I have many foods I commonly eat at the top of the all list so I hardly search...and that pesky banana...tempting me (I’m on keto :-)
