I use this option because many times I select a food that is extremely similar to what I ate. example: fatoush from a grochery store is going ot be different the the fatoush I make at home from scratch and with fresh ingedients. If I am making a veggie stew and don't have time to build it in, I just pick something similar in the list. Most of my food is prepared form scratch and doesn't have a bar code on it. therefor it is pretty hard to say it is EXACTLY what I ate. yeah?

Lots of days, I've forgotten to click to change it over, but I'm trying to be more diligent now. I like the "this is some of what I ate" option for days when I'm not sure my accounting is spot on, for instance if I go out to eat at a non-chain restaurant so I'm left using what I hope are comparable foods from the list.

I'm not sure about this because I click 100% for all meals. If you click any other option, how does the program track you daily intake to calculate loss and gain. I know that if I leave all the choices unchecked, I won't get the results calculated by the program.
Do you other folks get the calculated results if you check other that the 100% box?
