Default Numbers don't add up

Using the formula of 1 g of fat = 9 cal, 1 g of carb = 4 cal and 1 g of protein = 4 cal, the numbers don't add up.

Example -- Yesterday I ate:
60.2 g fat. FitDay says thats 534 cals. 60.2 x 9 = 541.8
25.3 g carb FitDay says 97 cals. 25.3 x 4 = 101,2
100.7 protein FitDays 425 cals. 100.7 x 4 = 402.8

My totals = 1045.8 cals
FitDay = 1064.0 cals

Thats a diff, in this case of 19 cals or about 2% +/- I've only done this for a single day.

Doesn't seem like a lot but this may be more substantial for the more substantial, so to speak.

Any thoughts?
