Default How to estimate calcium in custom food

Help please. I want to enter calcium in a custom food as milligrams per 100g. The only option appears to be as a % of the food but I don't know how to calculate that. The food is an Australian cheese not in the data base and the calcium is given as 995mg per 100g.

Hmmm--I'd probably try to find a cheese as close as possible to what you're interested in and go with the value for it.

47 M 5'8"

May 4, 2010...... 440? lbs. (Start FitDay Size 60 Jeans)
June 19, 2010.... 393 lbs. (First Weigh-in)
June 19, 2011.... 229 lbs. (164 lbs. gone in one year :-)
Current Weight... 185 lbs. (Size 36 Jeans)

Next Goal 169 lbs. (07/04/12)
Ultimate Goal 165 lbs. (12/31/12)

The best exercises for weight loss are Fork Putdowns and Table Pushaways.
