I use it, and sometimes post on the boards, but I'm not out seeking friends like they all seem to be. I also talk on the CalorieKing.com.au forums too. The tools are all out there for us to use, and free!

I actually started using it about 1 week ago, both DH and I. It's helping so far, I have lost 1 kilo and my DH alittle more. It really helps jotting down how much you eat and how many calories you consume everyday, it's making us stop eating more than we need and especially at night!
The only problem I find is when searching for the food I've eaten, we eat home cooked food all the time, and maybe eat out on a weekend twice a month, it seems to come up with brand food, but I choose the closest option.
Anyway, would love to stick around here and help each other out.

You can add me too
I've lost 7kgs using MFP so far, I'm a big fan.Cstar
- there is an option where you can add a recipe. You enter all the quantities of the ingredients you use and it calculates the calories per serve its really usefull for me as I also do a lot of cooking from scratch.
Thank you I will do this

I love the barcode reader on the iPhone - so handy when at the supermarket trying to decide between two different brands.
I also cook a lot from scratch and I find it easier to add recipes on my iPhone than on the PC.

I just joined today - my un is arohz I think but butterball would have been a great choice ;) could you add me please too? Not sure how to do yet lol
I'm abit confused about the input - output thing.
How many calories are you guys on?
Anyway today because I added exercise it added extra calories for me to have but what I don't get is does that mean I should eat more? Or just be happier because I will lose more?
Is the cal they give you designed for you to lose weight without excercise? As in that's a bit less then your body uses a day?

butterball, I think from memory when I popped in my weight/height etc, it asked me if I wanted to lose weight/maintain/gain and how many weeks I wanted to do it over. So for me, mine are set at weight loss. You also choose how active you are.

Thanks for the info ange.
I is adding you ALL because have worked out how to do it and I'm sick of wasting my calories on mangoes.
Need some food inspiration people!!
