Your fact sheet says that 100g of squid has a lower count of cholesterol fried in comparison to steamed/boiled. How can this Be?

First of all, the cholesterol is in the squid itself.

Fried squid contains less squid than boiled squid, as part of the weight of fried squid also includes the fat-drenched batter or breading on it.

Frying something does not add cholesterol to it unless you have chosen to fry it in something which contains cholesterol.

You shouldn't be worried about the tiny amount of cholesterol found in squid. The cholesterol your body makes for necessary maintenance of your nervous system is far smaller than any cholesterol you might eat.

Human life would not exist without cholesterol. Life is good.

Zero complaints with FS's numbers here. Always seems accurate for me.

CAN'T BREAK THE PLATEAU
Don't put so much emphasis on the weight. The mirror and how things fit is more important. Keep it up, if you're meeting your calorie goals, you will see progress soon enough.

Default to "Today" on Reports tab
In the app, whenever I go into the "Reports" tab it defaults to showing my numbers for "This Week". Can I change it so it defaults to "Today" every time? It gets annoying ...

By weight not servings...grams, oz, it does not matter... but please not by serving
Any update on this, it does seem very cumbersome to add a recipe and show it by grams or am I missing something
