Question about planning....

I just began using the my fitness pal app for my phone so that I can achieve a better state of health. However, my situation gets a little tricky, in that I live in a house with 5 other people. We each take turns cooking on different nights of the week. Breakfast and lunch I have complete control over. I'm wondering if I might be able to use dinner as the beginning of my day, then the following day's breakfast and lunch. My breakfast tends to stay the same, and I can adjust for what others decide to cook with my lunch. Would this work, as long I'm consistent with the same 24 hour period of time? Any advice would be appreciated...

    You could... but you might find it a little awkward with the way the days are laid out within MFP.

    My first thought is why not try balancing over the course of a week, rather than worrying about a daily thing.

    A high on Monday's dinner means a little lower on Tuesday's lunch, etc, so that at the end of the week your average is what you're aiming for?
