    Once the apps button is open, find the green circle that is S Health
    .
    We're going to tap on that green circle with the little running person one time.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  4. 4
    It's going to open up S Health
    .
    There you can see awesome me with my orange hairdo because I do love orange hair.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  5. 5
    We are going to tap on this menu up on the right hand side
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  6. 6
    We can click on main screen
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  7. 7
    That will give us the main screen and as you can see I've burned a massive 3 calories so far since I got this setup
    .
    And we are going to click on food, the food fork, and knife icon down here. Tap on that one time.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  8. 8
    This is going to show you something really cool
    .
    Now, first of all, we've got a calorie goal here. Mine is 3057 calories, which is just ridiculous.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  9. 9
    You can change that
    .
    Daily calorie goals.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  10. 10
    You can set that to whatever you feel you need it to be
    .
    This is the calorie intake, this is the calorie burned, etc, etc.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    For whatever reason, S Health thinks that because I have a lot of exercise going on, that I need to have a lot of calories going into me
    .
    I'm going to hit cancel.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    I don't think I need that many calories
    .
    But, you know, S Health apparently wants me to be pretty fat. I've got breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks all lined up which is fantastic.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Anyway, let's start with breakfast
    .
    We'll calculate my basic breakfast, and we'll give you an example of how this works. Now, it's important to remember that your breakfast may be a little bit different than mine. One of the things that has always stopped me from using any kind of weight loss application is the fact that they are just impossible. I mean how many calories are in a latte? Maybe I go to Starbucks today and I get a McDonald's coffee the next day. It's just not something that I want to mess with. So I don't use these things. This one is brilliant, however. Let's click on breakfast.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    It's going to load in
    .
    OK, let's start off with breakfast, which is the first thing I do in the morning. Look at that, alcohol at the top of the list, that's not cool. Beer, these are not really what I would call breakfast drinks, but I guess some people may have them. If you do, well the stuff is here. Coffee, well, I confess to making myself lattes.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  15. 15
    So, as I was saying, I'm just going to click my latte
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    That is what I have, I have a latte every day, a warm latte
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    The next thing I am going to do, I am going to click on done
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  18. 18
    Alright, I don't need to add a food picture, I don't need to add notes
    .
    I could if I wanted to.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  19. 19
    I can check on the nutritional information
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  20. 20
    Fantastic, 135 calories
    .
    Honestly, I'm not too worried about any of that stuff. I just want to make sure that I understand what I have. Now, let's add some more breakfast stuff. What else do I have? Well, I do try to be a little bit fresh if you will, and I try to make myself some juice. So here we go, juice.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  21. 21
    Orange juice, 45 calories per hundred grams
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  22. 22
    I'd say I probably have about 200 grams
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  23. 23
    So, let's see, well here we go
    .
    1 cup, there we go. So 1 cup of juice. More or less, 200 grams. OK, done.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  24. 24
    And now I've got my breakfast, I've got 250 calories
    .
    Let's save that.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  25. 25
    And that gets us back here to breakfast
    .
    Now, let's add some more stuff here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  26. 26
    What else do I eat
    ?
    I eat eggs. I love my eggs. I eat the entire egg and I fry them.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  27. 27
    So, fried eggs
    .
    How many fried eggs do I have? Well, I usually make 2 or 3 eggs over easy. We've actually got a video on how to fry eggs. If you want to see how they get fried. I'm going to go with the big eggs, I like myself some big, fried eggs.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  28. 28
    I have large eggs, and honestly, I have 3
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  29. 29
    That's a lot, I know
    .
    But, my heart is still ticking. So, we're good to go there. I don't even want a picture of my breakfast, I know what it looks like. So that's 523 calories of my 3000 calorie goal. If I had a smaller calorie goal, then that would be less food.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  30. 30
    I can tap on my little bar graph here
    .
    And see how far up the list I am. For today's things.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  31. 31
    That, my friends, is how you use the food menu for your Samsung Galaxy S Health, and this will help you track your food quickly and easily
    .
    Click back into the food here.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  32. 32
    Let's say you go out for lunch
    .
    Fast food, there's some fast food. What are we going to have? We're going to have a burger.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  33. 33
    Which kind of burger are we going to have
    ?
    A large cheeseburger.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  34. 34
    Nice and easy, there, OK
    ?
    609 calories right there. That might not be exactly how many calories the large cheeseburger is, but it is about 609 calories, maximum 700. You might get one that is a little bit less. At any rate, that's your cheeseburger.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  35. 35
    You can even take a picture of it if you want to
    .
    Save it.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  36. 36
    And there you go, you've got your calories
    .
    More calories in my cheeseburger than in my whole entire breakfast. Latte and 3 fried eggs and butter.
