Hi, LadyLinda, and welcome back! Yes, you can definitely have potatoes – they are in the “Carbohydrate” category, “Starchy Vegetable” subsection. Each serving of a vegetable is 1 cup raw or 1/2 cup cooked. “Free” foods have their own category.
If you would like to get reacquainted with the Menu Planner application, please do take advantage of our video tutorial when you enter it.

I agree we definitely need a search button!
I spend a lot of time trawling through post from which I glean useful information but a search button would also mean often repeated questions could be avoided.

Hi, Mariguild. Actually, it’s “pastured,” referring to the animals grazing in a pasture on food that is more natural to them. The result is meat and poultry that are much healthier for humans, especially if organic (raised without excessive antibiotics and hormones, and with no pesticides on the grasses eaten.

Hi, Dimples. That all sounds fine.

Hi, Hobbins. Those are either specifications or recommendations (in the case of rice, we recommend brown, but white rice is a choice you can make). With regard to your physical activity, for each hour of mild-moderate exercise, add another snack (protein+carb minimum) and double that for very strenuous exercise.

Also what times of the day are we to eat? what is the latest we are to eat snack 3 if go to bed at 9pm sleep at 10? Thank you, dimples4566

Having a problem understanding the menu and recipes. where an item (say chicken) is followed by further qualifications, does this mean that all of them are required or are they a choice. Some of the items are very American and do not suit our British stores. E.g. Is it okay to use ordinary steak and fish? Can I please use white rice as i do not like the texture of brown rice? I like hot spicy curry nan bread and chappati, so can I include these in my diet? Also, although I am 73 I do alot of marshal arts and other exercise, so do I increase my intake accordingly? If so, by how much?

Hi kmbjcarson,
Thanks for posting!
The message in step 1 appears when there is an invalid weight in your profile. Usually it happens when decimals or special characters are used in the height field. I have just checked your account and it seems that everything seems ok and the message is no longer appearing. If you continue to see this, please let us know and we will be happy to help.
Lastly, regarding the search function, this is definitely something we are looking to improve and we appreciate your suggestions!
Best 🙂

1)How do you input your height in your progress chart? There is an input box for weight and information that says “Please fill valid height” but no input box to put the number in. If you click on the instruction there is an error – 404-Not Found”

2)Why is there no search for the forum? That is pretty basic and expected functionality any forum to be truly useful especially if you want to see if someone else already asked for the information you are looking for.

Thanks so much for you help!!
