Adding Fiber to the Food Tracker

I want to be able to track the amount of fiber that I'm eating and am surprised there is no place to enter or track it in the food diary.  Can you add this to the tracker, or is there somewhere else to track fiber (actual grams, not just if I ate it or not)?  Thanks.

Hi there -

If you have your tracker open, click on "Reports".  Choose Weekly Macronutrients, and scroll down and you will see a daily average of micronutrients, and fiber is included there.  You can't see it daily, but you will be able to see how much you've been getting, and if you need to increase it.

I hope that helps.  If that's not enough, and you'd like a more active approach to tracking fiber, let us know.  Many times, it is included in the listings of the foods you choose.

Hi,

Yes I see it under those reports, thank you.  I do think that fiber would be helpful to track every day in addition to fat, carb and protein.  

Also, I have just noticed in reviewing my food trackers that the addition isn't correct for the total per meal.  This is for fat, carb, protein and calories.  If I only have one entry, a snack of an apple for example, then the total is correct.  However when there is a list of items the total for the meal is not accurate and in some cases very far off.  Therefore my tracker is not correct either.  Is this possibly a bug?

Thanks for the observation!  Can you give me an example of a day/meal in which you noticed things were far off?
