Whatever you do, don't bother buying most brands of low-sodium bacon (if you eat bacon). They trick you into thinking it's low-sodium per serving when they've actually sliced the bacon so thin that it barely has any salt in it... and it's a small serving. No good.

I checked that and wondered if they thought it was canned black and garbanzo beans that I had instead of my home cooked from dry beans. I found out it was but in the mean time I decided to have something else and just one serving of beans.

the sparkpeople entries [not user entered] for some beans like pinto are for ready to eat, which means canned. if you are cooking beans from dry, manually enter from the package you are using to get accurate nutrition info.
I know how to avoid sodium, but wonder if the tracker assumes all food is salted as cooked. I cook my own beans, but when I add as today, black and garbanzo beans, they are listed as really high in salt.
I can't eat as many calories as the nutrition tracker says I must after my exercise without going over on carbs and salt.
