why doesn't every result show up when looking for foods in the diet tracker?
0

When I'm entering food I've eaten for the day in the Diet Tracker and I do a search, it seems like it doesn't bring up the whole list under popular brands & restaurants. For example if I enter "pizza" it brings up the list under "General" then lists "Albertson's" through "Boston Pizza". All the searches seem to be this way - I've never seen a listing that starts with a letter past "D" on any search I've done. Is it just a limited search and do I have to use a specific name like "Pizza Hut" to bring it up?

Hey Kelli,

Good question...

The Calorie King database is the largest database out there, so it simply isn't possible to list every result if you happen to use a vague seach term like cheese, as an example. You can imagine how many results would show up if we listed every one...it would be like searching another mini-database.

As you mentioned, here's what you'll find if you search for the following foods.

A search for cheese only gets you to the A's...

A search for low fat cheese gets you to the W's (the last result)...

A search for swiss cheese also gets you to the W's (the last result)...

The best thing about the diet tracker is the fact that it is so comprehensive, but in order to find what you're looking for quickly, you should definitely BE SPECIFIC WITH YOUR SEARCH TERMS (we do mention it in the tutorial video). We know that many of you weren't necessarily aware of this, so we do appreciate you bringing it up!! Happy

Thanks,

Brian

Hey Cheryl,

If you use specific search terms, you will see all of the options displayed, so there's no need for another page of results.
