For more accuracy, Fexter will also recognize many different measurement types. You can use cups, oz, g, tbs, almost any serving size you can think of, Fexter will sort it out for you.

For example you can text:

8oz chicken breast


1 small apple

You can also add multiple items to one text. Treat this as a way to streamline entries and save even more time! You can easily construct a recipe by texting each item separated by a comma.

For example, say you had an omelette for breakfast. The text would look like this:

3 eggs, 2 slices cheddar cheese, 3oz green pepper

Here is an example of a multi-item entry of Bratwursts with sauerkraut and a side of white rice. Followed by some sweet potatoes.

2 bratwurts, 3oz sauerkraut, 8oz white rice

I added 2 bratwurts, 3oz sauerkraut, 8oz white rice to your food log for Feb 12, with 32 protein, 68 carbs, and 39 fat, for a total of 751 calories

10oz sweet potatoes

I added 10oz sweet potatoes to your food log for Feb 12, with 4 protein, 62 carbs, and 1 fat, for a total of 276 calories

The more direct you can be the better. Fexter does a great job, especially with real foods. However, some processed foods and rare items can throw him for a loop. If he doesn’t recognize something you have entered he will send you a message to let you know.

I’m sorry, I’m having some trouble adding that food to your log.

If you get this error don’t be sad. There are few options. You can always try again, just in case you misspelled the item. Or make sure you are using the correct name for the food item. If that still doesn’t work…
