Nutrional Data for Food - help
Posted Tuesday, August 27, 2013 at 4:30 PM
I need a bit of help. Is there a publication that is really good with breaking down nutrients etc. I am going nuts on myfitnesspal because so much of the information that has been input is really incorrect. Rarely does it ever show things like potassium or even correct fats and never shows the good stuff you get out of greens.
I used to have a book that broke that all down years ago but can not remember what it was called.
My friends and I are doing a tracking chanllenge for the rest of the year and let me tell you this does nothing for the vegan diet when it comes up looking incorrect. I am willing to go in and add every single piece of food & meals I make as long as I know what I am entering is correct.
Any suggestions? The internet is so full of contradicting information lol. Never knew how hard it was to track Romaine, celery, Daikon, beets, etc.
*I figured this would be a good chance for them to see what I eat and that I do get all my nutrients and it is vegan. Kind of blowing out the naysayers.
