I've entered new foods several times before and obviously it's a pretty easy process. Today I tried to enter a new one and it won't let me! I submit the info and it says "The calories in this item are inconsistent with the fat, protein, and carbs. Please review your entry" or something to that effect. I'm not making it up... I'm getting the info right off the package and of course I double checked for typing errors. Any ideas?

I get the same issue from time to time. If you save it as "unshared" it'll work, it just won't enter it into the database and you'll have to enter it from your custom foods.

That happens to me too for alot of the UK products I use. Usually it's because of the fibre & carbs. Over here fibre is considered separate from carbs & is not part of the total carb count. So if you're adding something with more fibre than carbs you have to add the fibre to the carbs to get the total carb count.

eg: if something has 15g total carbs, of which 10g is sugar & 5g is starch, but 9g is fibre. You would have to add the fibre so: 10g + 5g + 9g = 24g total carbs.

Anyone know how to delete days from the calendar?
Bump. Anyone with a solution? I also want to delete a day, for the same reason. I didn't record food, but I did adjust the exercises. So now it's screwing up my averages.
