I've been using fitday for a while now, it's great. I was just wondering, say, when eating a banana, if I weigh it, once I unpeel it and lay it on there and it says 3.35 oz, I would mark down 3.35 oz yields on there right? That seems right, but its only 55 cals, and when I just mark the option 1 small banana its 92 cals. Am I right by weighing it? Also the same with apples if I weigh it before I eat it, then weigh the core when done, and subtract that and put that oz. amount as yields is that right?

Yeah I would say so... or you could slice the apple in half, cut out the seeds then weigh it.

If in doubt, use the USDA nutrient database.
