Does anyone else find it hard to use the food log accurately since I don't measure what I eat in cups or whatever.

Last time I checked over half of my calorie intake was fat even though when I look on the nutritional information on the food hardly any fat is in the foods I eat why is this?

Maybe the fat contents are different in america to the uk?

When I was using fit day my fat was huge until I realised that I had 1 cup of butter rather than 1 recommended spread of butter.

Same here... half the products on there are based on American food.. i suppose it gives you a rough idea but that's not always good enough... just my 0.2p

i dont like it,most of the time the nutri values are different from labels

Ahhh you guys but that is why they offer the CUSTOM foods....you can enter the info from the label in there......give it a shot it's great once you have most of your food loaded in.

It remembers your CUSTOM foods so all you have to do is click on them from the pull down menu.

Do you think it is really accurate??? I eat a lot of tuna...And it says that every 7oz of raw tuna have 2g of fat...I thought tuna had more fat than that..

Tuna's practically fat free. It's like 1g fat for every 25g of protein. Pretty nice ratio if you ask me. And that fats GOOD fat too.
