Hello,

I work for SparkPeople, and have access to certain account info so I can support our members.

Your info is NOT all public. If you would like to share your food and/or fitness trackers with other members, there is an option for that in your SparkPage Settings. Our default is to leave that turned off unless you explicitly turn on the option.

About the food database, SparkPeople created a lot of the foods. But, we also give all members the ability to manually input food so there is a lot of member-created foods in there to select. The good side of that manual entry is that much of what you want to track will already be there; the down side of it is that sometimes members enter inaccurate info. In this specific case, I was able to find that food in our database and update its nutrition info so it is more accurate.

Wow! Good call. Info was WAY off. Who enters this stuff?
Also, how did you access my log? Is this all public information?
Thanks.

Hi,

Although the calories can be a little off when doing the math like that, it shouldn't be as far off as you are seeing with that example. Please take a look at the nutrition info for the Annie's Organic Cheeseburger Macaroni you tracked. It looks like that food may be causing the biggest part of the discrepancy. You might want to pick another entry for that food or manually enter it if you have the package with the correct details.

Do you think that explains what you are seeing?

All my entries have macronutrients listed. Yet when I look at the totals at the bottom of the log, the total calories shown doesn't match up with the calories/gram of macro nutrients. For example: today shows 1871 calories. 185 grams of carbs, 46 grams of fat, and 87 grams of protein. 185 x 4 = 740 calories. 46 x 9 = 414 calories. 87 x 4 = 348. 740 + 414 + 348 = 1502. Not 1871.
What am I missing here?
Thanks.
