Weight Loss Support - Geez, I've got to watch quantities on fitday

I couldn't figure out why my calorie count was so high. (over 1200) I went back in to see if I'd listed something twice, as I often do.

Nope! It put in 1 liter and I thought I'd put in 2 tbls of something. I didn't. Once I got that fixed I found I was back within a reasonable range. :dizzy:

Does anyone else run into this?

I don't have that problem often...but I'm kinda concerned...1200 is HIGH? That's generally considered the MINIMUM healthy calorie intake...

Yes, all the time. I think that is one of the reasons I gave up on fitday and went back to writing it down. I plug in all the food and then have to tweak each one to get the right thing. I mean, goodness, who on earth will eat a whole liter of salad dressing or one leaf of lettuce--that's what fitday used as the most common measurements. I suppose I could build in my own (and I have in some cases) and then the amounts would be correct.

Salad dressing, olive oil, cottage cheese, a whole bag of frozen peas ... yup. I've had some pretty extraordinary numbers some days ;)

Once you use a food though the next time you use it, the amount you used last time is the default....or is it only on the download it does that.

The online default for mayo is 1 liter.

I have lots of little heart attacks thanks to Fitday.

I use the downloaded version, and the default is whatever measure and value I used last. So for mayonnaise, it's tablespoon, and then I put in how much of a tablespoon (usually a half or a third)--and so on.

(1200 is not high for a whole day. But for one meal, yeah--argh!)

I always have fun when adding in olive oil that I cooked with...I'll look at my cals and go WHAT?? And then realize, oh, it's okay, it just thinks I ate a cup of olive oil.

1200 cals for a meal? I must have misunderstood.

I was unclear. It was 1200 for that one item.

& I do agree. You would be regular. :o
