Hi,

I just tryed to calculate my own bread's nutrition facts using fatsecret, and maybe it's just me, but...i think that this is some kind of bug, something is not calculated correctly. Look the screenshot and see:

If I have 72.41 grams of protein in this "meal", multiplying it with 4kcal/g, I shoud get 72.41*4=289.64kcal, and that should be about 16.09% of all calories (1800kcal) but fatsecret's graph shows that proteins made only 9% of whole meal's calories.
Also, when i try to add all callories (31.17*9+337.82*4+72.41*4=1921.45) I get 1921 kcal instead of 1800.

Am I missing something, or...?

I can't see your diet calendar, so I can't see how much fiber is in the equation. Maybe FS isn't counting fiber in the calorie breakdown?

Hoser, thanks for reply... I've just changed my settings. "Share My: Weight, Journal & Calendar" is now set "with everyone". I tought that fiber is contained in carb's calories (if it has calories at all). Anyone have explanation for this mismatch?

Thanks for that. I've looked at the numbers, and I have no freakin' idea what's going on.
