1) What does it mean if on your fitday.com calendar there's a little apple or tomatoe looking thing?

2) Are Folate and Folic Acid the same thing?

3) On the NUTRITION FACTS label on foods. If for example something has 3.5g of total fat, but 0g of trans and 0g of saturated does it mean that the entire 3.5g is made up of poly/monounsaturated fat? If so how would you enter those numbers into the fitday.com custom foods if you don't know exactly what they are?

Thank you,
Rich

1. that you logged food on that day

2. yes

3. not exactly. if it contains less than .5g of sat or trans fat, the FDA lets them call it 0g.
If the ingredients list any amount of Hydrogenated or Partially hydrogenated oils/fats, then it contains some trans fat, but less than .5g per serving.

when doing custom foods, just guess. split it evenly, etc.
