I understand what you are saying but it does not answer my question.
It doesn't make sense to be able to enter nutritional information for other foods and such when one does do a "manually enter" for calories either on the packaging of the food item or by googling the info from the Internet and entering that info, but yet not be able to do vitamins. Although vitamins don't have calories at least with taking a vitamin pill I could see whether or not I am hitting the requiremnt set forth by spark people.
In this way I can see how much I or maybe others would be getting daily. It is frustrating to eat the foods required but yet not hit the mark in getting the optimum vitamins and nutrients as set forth by spark people on the nutrientional tracker.
In this way by allowing a blank on the the food entered where one could put in the variant for nutrient that is not on the tracker would I am sure be a great help to many.
Also, I have been to my doctor and it is not necessary for me to have blood work done. She said if I am not getting enough vitamins to take a supplement but don't over do. That is the reason why I am asking about an additional blank on the nutritional tracker so that I can keep track. Besides I would only use this tool to know whether or not I am getting enough of the vitamin as needed. And it would be nice to have such a tool. And I think that others might think it would be nice too.
Besides, not every food or vitamin is listed with all the nutrients and you are correct in that. However, for the ones that are, and that are not on the nutritional tracker, it would be nice for those, (myself included), that could use such a tool.
Frankly, I was somewhat taken aback by your statement of your suggesting that I have blood work done simply because I, like so many others, use the nutritional tracker to keep on top of my vitamins & minerals. Telling me to have blood work done really defeats the purpose for which the nutritional tracker was created for any food and if that's the case all of us would have to have blood work done.
Sorry but I didn't think your answer was appropriate nor did it answer my question.
