I'm glad that the USDA link was what you wanted :-)

As far as transferring your Loseit date to SP, you would be best off to put that request on the Site/Technical Help Forum

Kris,

Thank you so much for the USDA link. That is a very impressive list, and very detailed. It is exactly what I was looking for!

CM, my preferred place for entering nutrition data is LoseIt.com. I find that site easier to use than SP, and I have spent quite a lot of time and effort in building up my personalized list of favorites. And, yes, I enter the data from the carton or package, or look it up online, so I am entering the correct information for a specific quantity.

I wish so much that I could sync my LoseIt data into SP!!!!!

My Loseit data is automatically synced over to my FitBit.com account; but, while my fitbit activity data is synced over to SP, my transferred-into-fitbit loseit data does NOT transfer. ????

Anybody know how this might be done? I am NOT going to enter the data twice!

Thanks for your replies.

Martha

As said, it's best to add your own values, based on the nutritional values from either your packages, or the online references.

That's why I always use the weight/volume when I add favourites, rather than going by the "one serving" that most have. It makes no sense to me - because my serving size may not be the same as yours, and gives no point of reference, or chance to adjust.

If I put in that 50 g of something is 'x' calories, and tomorrow I wish to have 60 g - it adjusts. If I only have the option of "one serving"; I'll never know how much that may be.

Best wishes.
It will be a bit of work at first; but well worth it when you have a list of favourites that you can actually use.

Some foods on the SP Data Base are based on 'whole' cup; etc. values which I also find to be unhelpful. Here is a link to a couple sites which may help:
www.calorieking.com.au/

ndb.nal.usda.gov/ndb/search/list

You will need to enter them into your Favourites, manually.

Good luck,
Kris

I recently bought a very nice kitchen scale which weighs in grams, ounces, pounds, etc.

I would like to try weighing my food and entering the calories based on weight, rather than by volume (such as cup, Tbsp, etc.)

Where can I find a listing that shows calories of particular foods, based on ounces, etc.???

Or is there some easier way to do this I am not thinking of????
