My Fitness Pal bar scan question
 
I am new to JUDDD, thanks to Beeb for introducing me to it! I just installed the fitness pal app and can't find the bar scanning feature on it. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks so much.

Let's see....

Click "Add to Diary"

Select a Meal (i.e. "Breakfast", "Lunch", "Dinner")

At the top there will be a search box that says "Search For a Food"

Next to that is a magnifying glass to start a search.

Next to THAT is a little blue button with a bar code on it - THAT'S it!

Good luck!

What phone do you have? I have a droid and it uses my barcode scanner app

I LOVE this feature of the smartphone app. I used to have to enter stuff as custom all the time with ****** but this thing so far has recognized everything I have scanned.

Thanks for the warm welcome
 
Love your use of emoticons, Beeb. Yes, another book might be called for...I just have to master this plan! Coming from a WW background, used to counting points not calories...but ultimately, not too different.
AND YES, I followed your instructions and TADAAAA, found the bar code scanner. I bow to you! Thanks, folks, thanks Sandy. BTW, my name is Lenore. Please feel free to call me that! Or Cho, as Linda prefers. :)

When I first saw it I thought "I don't eat that many frozen meals - what am I gonna use THAT for?"

Well, duuuuuuuh - EVERYTHING has a barcode!!! Bread, mayo, bbq sauce, basically all your parts n pieces that make up your meal except fruits, veggies and meat!

My hubby thinks I've lost my mind standing with my phone as I make dinner .............(maybe I have!)
