Hi there...for some reason, FitDay seems to default to preparation of veggies with fat when you just use the search feature. Go to Browse, select vegetables, etc., find green beans, and scroll down to "from fresh, frozen, whichever, prepared without fat." You should get a much more reasonable number. It's a pain, but at least it's accurate!

nope! i guess that didn't fix it. it still shows 76 cal. for one cup
and i don't think it's that high
(fresh; no sauce)
Do you have a food scale? I've found it easier to accurately calculate when I'm weighing vs measuring my food. I think I picked up mine at Wal-Mart for less than $20. I made fresh green beans last sunday and once weighed out only had like 20something calories in my portion. And it was a fairly large portion. Just something else to consider
I agree, in theory, that's SHOULD be the solution. BUT, going by past experience (I've emailed them several times for several different things; at several different email 'contact us' email addresses); and one of 2 things happens:
1. it gets completely ignored; even when sent twice
2. I get inconsistent/inaccurate answers
I'm not sure there really ARE any 'powers that be'!
