Tomorrow will be my first day , so please bear with me. I can (I think) work out the calorie counter except for a couple of items. I usually have museli with fat free yoghurt for breakfast but I type in museli and it says nothing recorded.I've thrown the box away it came in so I can't even refer to that. Also if say, the calorific value of a tesco item is given. can I use that for a brand that isn't shown.Sorry to go on but I really want to get this right.

  • Hi Majorcagirl,

    Maybe try the spelling as: 'muesli' and you'll have a better response. I think it just didn't recognise 'museli' - now I'm wondering whether I've spelled it correctly, but I think the version I wrote first is correct. Try that, and it should give you some results.

    Lowcal :-)

  • DUH!!!! silly me, I'll have another go or go back to school

    many thanks.

  • Easily done - I was struggling today to spell Buryani - and I still don't know the correct spelling for that. I meant to google it...!

  • I this k its biryani

  • Thanks Jan! :-)

  • Hi again,

    Just to say that I don't know which calorie counter you're using, but an app called 'Myfitnesspal' is very good and has a massive range of products within its database, so it might be worth a look - many of us use that one - it's free and easy to use.

    Lowcal :-)

  • I assume this app. is on your mobile. trouble is I have a very basic mobile that I only use for texting friends and family, but thanks anyway.

  • No, you can access that app via the internet - the web address is

    It's really good.

    Lowcal :-)

  • thank you, will try it.

  • Hi Majorcagirl,

    If tomorrow is to be your first day, maybe this would be useful to you

    All the best to you and hope to see you at the weigh-in and the challenge :)

  • Porridge

  • I would go tight back to basic at the start with the side of the packet and a set of scales. Used an app yesterday it was telling me there was a 4 calorie different between asda strawberry and Tesco ones lol so I just weigh it wright it down for next time I eat sound a lot of messing about but maybe quicker in the long run good luck

  • Thinking about that yoghurt.

    Search [ worst sugar or fat].

    Why? Because too often foods labelled NO or LOW fat contain added sugar which is worse.
