I had the same idea as you about the food database. I thought I could program
in some standard meals and just use these for convenience. However to do so, you
have to go into a submenu at the point where you would normally enter the carb
count with the up arrow. After several scrolls and button presses you end up
back where you were except the carb count is entered automatically. It's a lot
quicker to just enter the carbs manually with the up and down arrows.
