I think it's ridiculous to approximate calories when fit day gives you the chance to log things in by ounces or grams so you know calories more precisely. I weighed the edible part of a large orange earlier and it came to 114 calories, more than the entry for "large orange" in the database which is an approximation. Even calories from fruits and vegetables can make you fat if you gorge on them. One large orange on the fit day database is 86.5 calories. That much of a differences makes weighing things on a food scale a necessity if you're actually serious about calorie counting.
