I've been getting more and more frustrated lately at something that affects my weight loss journey. I search for a food on the nutrition tracker and it either comes up with nothing or it comes up with 20 versions of the same thing. Then, of the 20, not one is even right! How difficult is it to copy from the nutrition label to the nutrition tracker? It's understandable for something like homemade spaghetti sauce. But when you buy a package of string cheese and it says that there are 120 calories in one serving when the bag (for the same brand, same item) clearly states that there are 70 calories. My personal favorite was the entry I ran across the other day for fresh mushrooms...it said they have 80g of fat in a half-cup serving. Come on people...use your brains!
*sigh* Ok, it's out of my system. I hope. I will continue to enter my own foods manually. I apologize if I offended anyone. I just needed to vent after having entered my food for the day from others' entries. I was in my calorie range. Then I started looking and I'm 400 calories below the low end of my range because things were entered wrong.
Anyway, have a good night all!
