Nutrition tracker data not always accurate

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

I don't know how many times I've entered an item, then checked the nutrition data against the nutrition label, only to find that the tracker's nutritional information is not always accurate. I found this to be true for cereals, yogurts, many of the Sparkrecipes, chocolate, ice cream, v8 juice, and a myriad of other products. Be sure to double check the information against the food labels frequently if you want accurate information on your tracker.

    I agree also. But what I have been doing is filling in mine(especially my favorites)manually. A lot of times when they say 1 serving you have know idea how much is one serving unless it is a packaged serving. I am thankful that we have the option of filling in our own manually.

Even if not 100% accurate it has been the most awesome way for me to track and it is working for me. Keeps me excited and on track.

  I totally agree with you, I am an ice T addict and when you punch in Tea it shows 60 calories but when I went to my cupboard and looked at the box it says 0 calories. So there you have it. I have changed so many of my calorie intakes on the tracker to program my progress.
