How do I quickly add the same supplements each day?
Hi! I'm a new Cronometer user with a Gold subscription using the website, so I think I have access to all features.
I take a few different supplements each day (a multi-vitamin, omega-3, B12, D3) and so each day I click "Add Food" for each of my supplements. The process takes a couple of minutes, so it isn't too painful, but I am wondering if there's a better way?
The best solution I've come up with is to pick an arbitrary day from before I was using Cronometer (eg: January 1st) and add just my supplements there so I can use the "Copy to Today" feature. I considered some other approaches but couldn't find a way to do them:
- Copy just one group from yesterday ("Supplements") to Today
- Create a "default" set of diary entries for a day
I searched around the forum and saw a mention of "recipes" but when I look at recipes they do not appear to be groups of Custom Foods, rather they're aggregate nutritional information, whereas I'd like to ensure I'm accurately tracking which individual supplements I've taken each day.
 Example of what I add each day
To copy one diary group, right-click the diary group header 'Supplements', then select Copy to Today.
For the second option, I suggest creating a recipe from your daily supplements. Right-click the diary group and select 'Create Recipe from Selected Items'. Create a custom recipe. Then you can add them to your diary each day in one go. If you like to see them listed in your diary, or need to edit/delete one of the items, right-click the recipe logged in your diary, then explode recipe to see the individual items.
As always, any and all postings here are covered by our T&Cs:
Thank you very much! I didn't think to right-click on the group, that's perfect
