interesting....but how do you add up...what's in cereal, soda, etc. and add it all up? converting grams to teaspoons???? Is there a limit to cereal, soda each day so you know approximately what's in each and add up at end of day?
I agree with the other comments. Sugar has so many "names" and not all recipes shared deliniate them separately. Sugar is our undoing and we need to be able to track it easily. Please allow us to at least add it as a nutrient to trak for ourselves. I may be forced to use a different site to track my food, whick I don't want to have to do. Thanks.
Scary. I hope I do not eat any where near that amount. I know some co workers who drink 3 cans of coke a day -yeah they might be skinny NOW but I can't help but think what they are doing to their insides.
I am very disappointed that you don't include sugar in your tracker. Yes, I too read your answer for why it's not, I also agree that is more a political statement. Percentages and amounts of sugar are listed on the nutritional labels. Using that would be a good start, hidden sugars, fats, gluten are all out there, that's a fact of life, unfortunately. Please add sugar to your tracker! I have been forced to start tracking my food on an Excel spreadsheet since you don't include sugar and I am doing the Stop Only Sugar diet and need to try and eat 20 or less grams of sugar a day and 30 or more grams of fiber a day. Two very important things to be able to track from a weight loss/nutritional point of view!
