Something funny

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

I was just checking my Nutrition Tracker and saw that it said I had eaten 252g of protein today. I was a little bewildered, since the only meat I'd eaten all day was a pork chop, and everything else except the cheese bun I had as a snack this morning was all veggies and fruits.

I scrolled on up and discovered the culprit: I had eaten baby carrots at lunch, and the one I'd chosen from the user-added items said that 86g of baby carrots have 199g of protein in them!

That was obviously wrong, so I deleted it and went with the SparkPeople official baby carrots entry instead. 1g of protein for 8 medium baby carrots makes WAY more sense!

So you guys be really careful when you're adding food to your trackers - you never know when you might accidentally add something that isn't quite right!

    Did you take the carrot from the SparkPeople list or the user-added list? Sometimes the user-added stuff is really inaccurate.

    I had the same thing happen to me today. I posted 1 medium carrot on my tracker and on the nutrition report it warned me that it was very dangerous to be over your daily allotment of vitamin A intake. So
    I went back to the nutrition tracker to find what I was eating that was so high in vitamin A.
    I deleted the medium carrot that was 147 and added half a large carrot and the Vitamin A problem was corrected.
    I wonder if there is a way to report these inaccuracies so they can be corrected?
