Not sure I am following your disconnect --

Your daily total is --

CALORIES - CARBS - FAT - PROTEIN
Totals 780 calories - 115 grams of carbs - 20 grams of fat - 43 grams of protein
Your Daily Goals are 1,500 - 1,850 calories for the day 197 - 284 grams of protein for the day 39 - 68 grams of fat for the day 60 - 153 grams of protein for the day

Those numbers are not suppose to equal one another across but relate to the numbers below them for your personal daily intake plan.

Perhaps reviewing this tutorial video will help.

Let me know what additional questions I can help with after you have completed the tutorial.

Coach thanks for the answer but perhaps I did not state the question clearly. In todays record the total caloric intake is listed as 780 and yet the sum of carbs(115)/fats(20)/proteins(43) is only 178. This disconnect is true for breakfast and lunch seperately.

Thanks in advance if you can solve the riddle for me.

I see totals at the bottom of your page in two places so perhaps you want to restart your computer and see if everything shows up for you.

New to Sparks and enjoying the learning. Noticed that breakdown of calories in carbs/fat/protein does not sum to total calorie count in column to left.

Any insights?
