kiwi skin
2 links to share here (1 for comparison). I figure if you'd like to add an item to the database since you do consume them with the skin, you can use this to go by. http://www.sparkpeople.com/cal... http://www.sparkpeople.com/cal...

kiwi skin
"Can you eat the skin of a kiwifruit? Absolutely! The kiwifruit skin is completely edible and makes this nutrient-dense fruit even more nutritious! A recent study shows that eating the skin triples the fiber intake compared to merely eating the flesh. And by not peeling the skin, you preserve much of the vitamin C content as well. People all over the world have been eating the skin for centuries with no complaints. And many find that leaving the skin on their sliced kiwifruit makes it much easier for snacking, as the skin holds each slice together. Just like any fresh fruit or vegetable, we suggest that you wash the skin before eating since it is unknown who or what touched it before you did. So enjoy your kiwifruit, skin and all!" Found on kiwifruit.org website. I personally have never tried it.

Worth recording measurements?
Yes, I find measuring very helpful as a tracker over time, but I only measure every 1-3 months. I personally feel that measuring more often than that will take away the "wow factor" for me.

What is the deal with Net kCal???
That category shows what you have eaten is less than what you have expended for the day. Keep in mind that this website will prefill "exercise" of sleep and rest. Typical advice is to always try to make that arrow show in the green with a number of 500 or greater for weight loss of at least 1 pound a week.

Helpful Carb/Protein/Fat Ratio and breakdown tool
Here's a link many people may be interested in: http://www.freedieting.com/too... It's a tool that can help you choose the Carb/Protein/Fat percentages you want and it will then show the gram and calorie breakdown to reach that ratio goal. It also goes one step further to show a meal breakdown to reach goal if you type in how many meals you plan on eating in a day.

Tummy bloat
It's impossible to completely help without being able to see your food journal, but assuming you have no medical conditions; it could be too much sodium in your diet, too little fiber in your diet, and/or too little water intake.
