If you log your meals and snacks on the Foods tab , just below the food chart is a pie chart that show total carbs and fiber. Substrat the two and you have net carbs.

Is there any way to enter sugar alcohol? I need it for some of the Atkins products to get the net carb count.
Thanks

I found some suggestions on the Atkins page, but if anyone has more info I would appreciate it. Also does the PC version track net carbs?

Yes, Fitday PC is able to track Net Carbs

Also, regarding the sugar alcohols - There is the "Alcohol" right under Protein which is where you would track those, at least that is what I have read in some of the other threads. I do not personally track that though, so not sure if it helps or not?

You have to double check sometimes the carbs aren't right they lean to the high side.

I just discovered it does track fiber if you roll the screen down in the calories tab you start in next to the pie chart. I imagine you need to subtract that total from total carbs.

Welcome to FitDay and the forums!

Currently, there is no facility to do that automatically. With the FitDay Premium you can track custom info, but you'd still have to do the math. We've been told that tracking net carbs may be added sometime in the future (but I wouldn't hold my breath).

Regards,
Michael
