Looks like an error in the version we use of the USDA, and it happens tablespoon size, not with teaspoon of Walnut Oil. For now, best thing to do is replace 1 Tablesppon with 3 teaspoons to get the correct data.

Walnut Oil should be o.k. now. I found out the error in the USDA database was mixing up a cup with tbsp :)

Cool. Thank you for debugging that. It scared the cr** out of me to see an extra thousand calories pop up there!!!

Hi, Now I'm worried about the data for flax seed. The carb by difference data for 100g flax seed comes up really high, when there is only about 2g of sugars and 27 grams of fiber in the stuff. Is this another error in the USDA database?

cheers, tfup

You can always go to the USDA link to double check when you think there maybe an error:

Make sure you are comparing the same iten with the NDB number, which is shown to distinguish similar items.

Yup there is a mistake. That can't be the right carb by difference.



ndb 12220 Seeds, flaxseed

It's correct. For every 100 grams of flaxseeds, there are 28.88 grams of total carbs, 27.3 grams of which are fiber. When it says "by difference", it doesn't mean "net". I believe it's referring to the way in which they came up with the carb count. They didn't actually test how many carbs are in it. Instead, they measured the amounts of protein and fat, and a few other things like water and ash. They assumed that anything left over was a carbohydrate...hence the "by difference".

Ah, here's a better explanation!
Quote:
By deduction, the FDA defines carbohydrates as anything that is not protein, fat, moisture, or ash. For the low carb dieter, this 'Carbohydrates by Difference' approach does not distinguish between conventionally-recognized carbs (which should be avoided) and those that are acceptable for all low carb dieters.

Great job on your loss! I'm new to this site and when I entered my weight for the first time I put in 195. Then I started my diet the next day at 197.4, so I edited the 195. Now I,m on day three and entered my weight of 194.6. Now my post right hand stats read 197.4/195/145 with no progress%. It should read 197.4/194.6/145. Thanks 4 the help.

Calendar
 
I have put entries in on June 1, 2008, but when I want to click on that date on the calendar in the left hand corner, it does not show a line under the date and clicking on the date is not an option. I can get to my data by putting in June 1 at the "jump to" date area, but not by clicking on June 1 on the calendar.

My Plan is not recording my weightloss...
 
Today I tried to post my weight change twice under weight stats in My PLAN and it did not reflect on the graph. Even the dates on the graph are incorrect? Can you check it out and let me know?

Thanks
Erin

I just updated my weight graph, and it seems to be working okay. Did you try refreshing the page? I have to do that to get the new weight to show on the graph. Also, after you enter your new weight at the top (you can change the date there if need be), you have to scroll down all the way to the bottom of the page and click on Save.

If that doesn't help, I'm sure a mod will be along soon to help you out. :)

MY PLAN weight update feature will not reflect my new weight loss on the graph even after I save changes several times

FreeBird1 Tue, Jul-01-08 16:26

Nevermind..thanks anyways..KISAL'S comment below worked..Refresh the page and then re-save! :-))


Yeah
