Aren't fruits and vegetable supposed to not have calories? I know that sounds kinda odd..but I always thought fresh fruits and veggies didnt...I was looking at what I've eaten in my FitDay and I noticed that the carrots and bananaz and peaches I've eaten have calories...Just wondering

All food has calories, even no calorie manufcatured foods have trace calories. Fruits and vegetables are important to your diet. They procide essential vitamins and mineral that arem uch easier for your body to digest then vitamins. Also, the amoutn of calories in fruits in veggies arem uch lower then other food groups such as meat and and full-fat dairy. The bottom line is that your gettign calories from the carrot stick yes, but your less likely to gain three pounds from that then a bag of potato chips.
It's not what you eat, but who your with that makes life special.
Inside my own head, I think this ... if it has nutrients, it has calories. The trick then is to find the most nutrients in a manageable amount of calories.
You can learn a lot more than just calories by going to Fitday, yes? I think it's a wonderful tool.
