I am putting in my nutrition information to Fitday, but am having some trouble with the UK food labels. They are different from the US food labels and some of the information is missing. I'm not too bothered about most of it, but what annoys me is that our fats here are labelled as "Fat" 20g (example) "Of which saturates" 5.1g. It doesn't go on to tell you what sort of fats the others are, mono, poly, something else (if there is anything else!) and if trans-fats are included in saturates or only natural saturates. I'd like to log how much of the good fats I am getting, but if all I can get is subtracting the saturates from the total fats how do I know what sort of fats the rest is, or is there something it's most likely to be?
Also seems to be some confusion over how carbs are entered in the UK compared to the US because fibre seems to be listed in total carbs there, here fibre is not listed in the carb total, it's listed separately and should not be deducted from the total carb, it's in addition. Not sure what Fitday does with this information if input UK style, if it's under-estimating my carb intake. Bit of a shame they don't have a column for carbs which are sugars as this is separately listed on our labels between complex carbs and sugar carbs, and I'd like to compare those. I do like the nutrition calculator on there I can do lots of useful reports, but these two things are getting me confused.
