Also, under the Top Menu Bar "Food" you can add in a new food, or add in a new recipe, in case you are consuming something not in the database.
It is very simple to do.
PS you can reply to stickies and I can move this under my sticky if you like.

The fat # that came up for me are
Thiis sounds high, if one is trying to follow Ornish or McD. In the Ornish book for my hight/wt he recommends 20 grams max.
So if I want to change this what number should I put in?
I was thinking for the low/high 10 -20

I don't understand about the calorie setting--it seems to have picked min & max for me. I am 5'7 and 124 pounds--it says 1,874 min and 2,343 max calories. Should I just leave it there or tweak it?? I'm not familiar with calorie-watching and am not trying to restrict calories or lose weight.
Also, it wants me to "Set Target Macro-Nutrient Ratios" at the bottom of the Set Nutritional Targets screen. What do you advise we put there? I seem to remember Dr. McDougall saying 80 for carbs and 8 for fat (?), leaving 12 for protein...or??

Omega 3 - change the minimum to either 1.1 for Women or 1.6 for Men (the NAS AI recommendations) with the upper level of 2.2 (the NIH recommendations).
Omega 6- change the lower level to equal your Omega 3 level and the upper level to be no more than 4x what every you set the Omega 3 at. This will keep your target levels at less than a 4:1 ratio.

What should I put in those boxes?
