Does the food tracking on here count fiber? For example it records my carbs at 19 but 12 are fiber so I have consumed 7 net carbs. Are these taken into account? It doesn't seem so and I find it really upsets me. Anyone have any input? Thanks.

you change the settings to count net carbs as well so it subtracts the fiber for you.

I am putting in my own food description items under "new entry" where this makes a difference and simply show the net carbs so that my daily food journal is totalling net carbs. This is also working well for entering less than a serving...such as 1 piece of sugar free red vines licorace instead of entering a fraction of a package listed 7 piece serving. I divide the counts by 7 and create my own listing for the food item.

I just saw Missychick21's reply and that is much better! I'm new to this so I was just trying to make it work for me. Now I need to find where to change the setting. Smile

its right under the total counts for the carbs and stuff. It says "edit preferences" and down at the bottom you check what you want it to count

I absolutely agree. Excercise is my key right now and I can't wait for induction to be over. I start over because of kidney stones although I didn't really eat bad.
