You’re either trying to log a food into your MyFitnessPal food diary but it doesn’t exist in the database yet, or you’re adding a food creation of your own like a sauce, dressing or yogurt.

Adding it in yourself is easy and takes only a few seconds. To begin, you will need to already have the nutrition facts of your item.

TIP: If it is a food item that you’ve created yourself but don’t already know the macronutrient profile, add it as a recipe!
