Last blog: I guess I did not
Sunday, June 10, 2012
First, I like to say thank you all for your concern on my last blog and helpful suggestions.
Sorry, I guess I did not make myself clear on my last blog. I am aware how to convert grams to ounces and vice versa. I know what my serving size should be. When I enter a new item and choose serving I put in parenthesis what that serving would be, ie: 2 Tbs or 3 cups or 4 ounces etc. But that is what I do when I manually add. My dilemma is that other people do not add what the serving equals to. So, If I don't know the serving size of other people's manually entered food, how do I know if I am over or under estimating?
I am going to use a fake situation with fake food to explain. Example: I ate rocks for breakfast...I look rocks up under search it comes up and I click on it. The only option I can choose is "serving" But even though I know I had 2 rocks I don't know what the serving is according to the lack of info on food item. Is a serving of rocks = 1 rock, 2 rocks or 3 rocks??? If I click I had one serving how do I know if it is right? It may have been a half a serving or double serving depending on what the original person input it at.
I am not asking for anyone to explain it. It is a dilemma for me cause I really count calories. I am just saying this is one probable cause to why I not able to lose the last 7-10lbs. And I was wondering if any others have this dilemma? I saw only Laleebeen did on last blog. All others were explaining how to convert. Read my blog I said I know how to convert. I just don't always have time too. And the real situation I am concern with it "serving" Yes, I know I can read labels. I am talking about when you click to add a food. Do you run to the cupboard to read labels? I normally don't, especially if I am not home.
Sorry for the confusion on last blog.
