Why can't I get my preferences to show the Carbs less the Fiber and Sugars as in the Atkins Diet? For instance, I added one 3 oz broiled hamburger pattie which Atkins said should be "0" net carbs, but it shows up on my food journal as 28 net carbs! I can input a 3 oz broiled hamburger pattie in FitDay and it shows "0" net carbs as it should. I'm trying to keep track of the food I eat on both web sites.Rolling Eyes

it sounds like the item you selected is including the bun. regular beef doesn't have any carbs. i would look for another listing that has 0 carbs.

I look first thru the list till I find the carb count for my jar of mayo not the first one on the list.

follow SE607 just look up ground beef if you know if its lean or whatever fat% use that instead, you will have to do that with other food items as well.

intermittent fasting?
A lot of people do it. It is skipping a meal or two every day. I have done it for months now. Are you thinking about it?
