e.g. cup, tablespoon etc.
From what I’ve seen, it’s just selecting a default weight. While this works for thinks like meat and vegetables, it doesn’t make sense for processed goods. If you provided the capability to change the measurement of “standard portion” to something more useful, people might be more inclined to take the time to add food and use the information provided! I don’t know how much a cheeseburger might weigh, so I’d like to simply add a burger.
Yes! Many things I eat have cup or tbsp sized servings and I have to put it in in grams and then let the app convert it to ounces and I have to weigh it. I’d love not to be tied down by my food scale.

Yes to what John said. Many other apps have this option.
Yes, please change the measurements..i don’t like always having to use my food scale for everything. Love the app, but really dislike this about the app.
It would be very helpful if you could add what a portion size should be; Especially if you are making more than one serving.

Totally agree. Just go with the MyFitnessPal version of this.. Whereever possible just default to listing as the actual calorie count, not a per 100g, or per g amount which we then have to convert.
Yes, also indicate the value to the "serving portion". Everytime I have to switch to grams, as I have no idea of how much is a "serving" portion.
A lot of pre-measured products are input badly; needs to be changed so units can be entered directly (1 square, .5 bars, etc.) rather than everything listed in fl. oz or dry oz. Scanning in a quick keto meal-bar shouldn't show possible metric measurements when put in imperial, and vice-versa, and needs to show '1 bar', not x-ounces which might not apply.
I would like to be able to choose between ml and g at the same time in the ingredients. For example cream, the calories is measured per 100 grams, the cream weights a total of 560g = 500ml. I used 200ml. How much is that in grams or calories? Its makes it a to much of a hassle to calculate that way and weight it all the time when I knew how much I used in ml. If I registered two parallel values/measurements it might be possible? Ex100g grains = 1,5dl grains
Maybe it’s just me who don’t know how to do it properly. But, it drives me nuts to create a food which weighs 40g with all relevant nutrients data based on 40g, for example, but when Yazio asks me to enter nutrients data to the standard portion of 100g.
This happens to me with almonds, I consume 6 almonds daily but the application puts 100 grams and I have no idea how much an almond weighs :-( hahaha.
It is difficult for me to know the weight of everything I eat. I can tell you if I ate 1/4 of a cup of something much easier, for example, than how many ounces something was. Often I only use ounces for liquids not solid foods so this makes calculating food and calories, the big point of the app, very difficult. I do enjoy the coach feature and meal planner though.
It would be useful to have the option to create a food with also 1 portion as quantity. I have some recipes with ingredients, nutritional values and bar code concerning a portion that doesn't correspond to 100g.
