So it would change every time you added a new magnesium-containing food to the log.
Kind of like watching the percentage of saturated fat change as you add new food to your food log.
If you find a food and add it, adding 2 cups instead of 1 cup, the calories should be double when you add it to the food log. The nutritional breakdown, in percentages for the food, won't change. The nutritional breakdown for your total food for the day would change, in a report you can get from 'reports.' If I understand your question correctly....?
If fitday could do that would be great. But really this can be done manually taking notes of how much each food raise this or those vitamins.
About my last question, you said that nutrition breakdown won't change. Even the total nutrition of the food? (the option on the right side). I ask this because I can't know for example how much vitamins or minerals has in a food. I will know, in the nutrition facts, above, the percentage but not the quantity which would be much easier to calculate.
