Meal Screen

We highly recommend viewing this short video to learn the fastest ways to enter foods.

This screen shows a list of food entries you entered so far on the iPhone and the web site, and allows to add new food entries. You can also see your current day totals in the table at the bottom.

The most often used function is food search. Browsing a large database like ours is not really practical. With our super-fast search you can get to the food you need much faster. Food search in MyNetDiary is very intelligent, it takes into account frequency of food use, automatically corrects typical typos, and so on. On top of that, MyNetDiary remembers the food you had before and shows them at the top as you start typing. Food entry in MyNetDiary is radically faster and easier than in any other calorie counter, mobile or web-based.

Food Favorites

The Favorites toolbar button (that looks like an arrow) allows to quickly pick foods based on your previous typical food selections for this meal.

Custom Foods

If you are sure that your food is not in our database, for example, you just had your very special meal, you can use the Custom Food button at the bottom to enter its nutritional information and then immediately save a new food entry with it. Alternatively, you can get to this Custom Food screen when you do search, and your food is not found.

To edit a custom food, go to any food entry with this food and then tap the edit toolbar button at the bottom of the Entry screen.


If the meal has two or more foods and you often eat the same foods together, you can create a "recipe" with the toolbar button at the bottom (that looks like a glass and a plate), so the next time you can search and select the recipe, without entering individual foods again.

Deleting Food Entries

You can delete a food entry by tapping on it to go to the Food Entry screen, and then tapping the Trashcan toolbar icon at the bottom.
