google fractions to decimals to help you figure out your measurements if you don't know them off hand.
.13 is .125 rounded up, which is 1/8
.25 is 1/4
.5 is 1/2
.33 is 1/3

and if you don't like an item for that menu and click on it, a list of possible substitutes will come up. so it's just fine to stick to your goals for the day and swap out whatever you need to.

-google first. ask questions later.

Does it matter if I use the foods listed on the menus but not as they are suggested? Example: can I use foods from different menus for a meal as long as I stay in my goal range for that meal? Also I'm confused on how to read the amounts to eat, such as .13,.5,.33 .5 etc. Sure would appreciate any help I can get from some of you "old-timers"
