Has anyone noticed why when looking at nutrient values the main info says e.g for 100g black beans 91 cals but when added into my daily cale count it credits 391 cals.

if anyone knows could they let me knowQuestion

It all depends on which serving size you choose. Sometimes it will default to 'cups' instead of grams, so you have to change it if you are using a different serving measurement. For example, there are 91 cals in 100g of black beans, but 218 cals in 1 cup of black beans.


Someone who is busier than you is working out right now.

Sometimes the default serving size makes sense, other times it makes no sense at all, as when you try to enter beef and the default portion size is "1 roast".

How Do I Track Net Carbs?
Can someone please explain to me what I need to do in order to be able to track net carbs with the Fatsecret app? I'm brand new to the app/site and trying to do the Atkins Diet.

Feelin it
Lovely feeling, sometimes inch loss is much better than what the scales say, as they are so many variables that affect weight :)
