Default FitDay leaves out sugar, cholesterol and sat fat

Does anybody know of a good, simple software program like Fitday, that unlike Fitday tallies up the sugar, cholesterol and saturated fats in the daily food eaten column?

Actually fitday does measure cholesterol and saturated fats, just not sugar.

Where does this show up in the food log? The food log, showing the running totals, shows columns for food name, amount, units, calories, total fat (not separated into saturated and unsaturated), overall carbohydrates (no listing for sugar or fiber), and protein. For me, running and total amounts of the missing items are vital. It is way too time consuming to click on the individual food to get what I need and add them up myself. Even at that, sugar is still missing.

UPDATE: OK, saturated fat is tallied in the other table, below the first one, along with fiber. Cholesterol and sugar are not. A somewhat awkward but workable solution is to simply take everything you list, and if it's not already a "custom food", make it one. You can then put the sugar and cholesterol, plus anything else you can think of that's not listed, into columns you don't use.
I've seen people here thinking they should put the sugar content into the alcohol column, and while this isn't chemically accurate, it will suffice since it will add up that column in grams. So at the end of the day, 40g of alcohol will actually be the sugar total. Maybe I'll place cholesterol into the monounsaturated fat column.

Hey guys at Fitday, wouldn't it make things easier if you did a minor redesign and allowed column customization, that is a column I could name whatever I please and add whatever I please?

Thanks

You can add columns to your daily food log by right clicking the header and choosing "Choose Columns..."

That works for saturated fat at least... no column for cholesterol seems to be available. And yeah, sugar isn't monitored.
