Another one is fiber. Then you could look at what percentages of your carbs are fiber. I think right now you kind of have to look at each item you add to your log and do the math. It would be nice if it were side-by-side with carbs or a checkbox that does the subtraction for you to arrive at "net carbs" rather than gross carbs.

But yes, sugar (in all its forms) is probably more important to track than fat. People are really coming around to that idea. Fructose is probably the worst sugar because of its dramatic effect on insulin.

I just started using this site and have noticed that there is no place to add the sugars for foods either. I used the alcohol option to enter foods yesterday for the sugars, but can't figure out why there is no entry for sugars when adding a food.

Technically Speaking about the sugar section The section for Carbohydrates is the main factor for the sugar section. I'm a Type 2 Diabetic and Yes I read food labels and always research fruits and vegetables that are NOT processed but are raw like bananas and broccoli to see the nutrients in them. Carbs are sugar period. Diabetics should be eating approximately 35 to 40 carbs in the morning and 65 to 70 carbs in the afternoon and at dinner time. So when you see Carbs listed on the Food Label look at the sugars and notice the carbs are usually more that sugar levels in most foods. The sugar number is included in the carbs Number. so it is the Carbs number you want to really pay attention to because it is the deciding factor. reduce cards you reduce your sugars irregardless the food.
