Thank you for the link, Coach Tanya. I worked at counting sugar for a short time, including sugar in milk, fruit, etc. I had to use the nutrition info for each food and I kept track of it in my nutrition notes. It was a time consuming task.

It's been an eye opener tracking fiber. Even though I eat a lot of fruit and do pretty good on the veges I still just barely high the low number. It's what I constantly work on every day. I've heard it said: don't count calories, count fiber.

Sugar, no. Fiber, yes. If you go to "my Nutrition" and scroll down towards the bottom, click on "Change Nutrition Goals" then click on "Add Another Nutrient to Track," choose Fiber and save it.

Is there anyway to track sugar and fiber daily?
