Quick-Add Calories and Macros to your Food Log

Note that quick-add is for logging basic calorie and macronutrient information for foods you don't intend to eat frequently. If you suspect you'll eat a food or meal again, or if you'd like to add more detailed micronutrient information, it's advisable to create a custom food instead. In contrast with custom foods, quick-added entries are not searchable in the future, because quick-add is designed specifically for foods you don't intend to eat frequently (so, saving quick-added entries would just clutter up your custom foods list).

If you decide you'd like to convert a quick-added entry to a custom food, you can use the copy to custom function. This will create a new custom food, with the information you've quick-added pre-filled.
