I am still on full liquids and haven't started tracking food. What app is the easiest to use and always entering a recipe that can be saved for future entries ?

I use myfitnesspal. I find that it's easier to upload the recipe entries from the browser than phone app, but then once you have it entered you can add the recipe easily from the app to your daily menu.

I use baritastic. I think I am the lone holdout on MFP these days, lol

I just switched to MFP this week, since they're closing down sparkpeople in August. So you did have company for awhile!

No you are not the most antiquated..I still use pen and paper. I eat simple foods,nothing complex no sauces or dressings. i track protein and carbs...now surgery was 1996, so no longer track fluids..

I second MFP. At one point I had something around 1,000 consecutive days tracked. It has a huge database and you can find anything by scanning. You can add your recipes too, by adding each item and deciding how many serving. It's very easy to use once you get a hang of it.
I have actually never used it on my laptop, only on my phone.

Thanks for the input. I will down load MFP and spend the next day giving it a whirl.
