Nutrition Tracker WRONG???????

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

Ok so I have a small issue with the nutrition tracker......Ill just give one example...Fiber One Non-Fat Strawberry yogurt....on the tracker its listed for 80 calories....but I have the box right in front of me and its only 50 calories and 0 grams of fat.......So I reccommend that you check the calories on the food you consume and double check before you track....this isn't the first time I have found something like that....so you may be not getting enough calories or going over and not realize it so take the time to double check!!!! emoticon

    I have found that as well. I check most things, adding them if the tracker doesn't agree with the label. I have also found that the nutritional content of the same food can be different in Canada than in the US. I don't worry too much about a few calories here and there but I sometimes adjust the portion size (ie 1.35 servings) to approximate the actual count of a food item.

    I have had the same thing so I check the labels and if they are not right I just add them and know it's all correct. :)

    I stumbled across your blog and have experienced the same thing. Although the tracker is very helpful, it is not always correct. I have a habit of entering all of my foods as favorites so that I know I'm tracking successfully. I do check the tracker before entering them as the tracker is usually 80% accurate. If you want exact figures, add them yourself and keep as favorites. This also makes finding food easier as you can list it how you feel is most beneficial.

    Good luck with your goals!
