Trans Fats?
 
I am new here; forgive me if this has been asked and answered previously.

The FitDay database shows Saturated, Poly, and Mono fats, but not trans fats. Is that correct? Is there a reason for this?

Trans-fat is not natural, it's man-made, and it's used to enhance the shelf life of food items. Trans fat depends on the amount used in the food product itself, best bet is to read the caloric label.

You do not want to eat that stuff, at all. Avoid at all costs. Don't eat it and you wont have to worry about it :)

Thanks. I enter all of my my foods in my food log so I can track my cals, fats, nutrition, etc. I know, for example, that a McDonald's hamburger has trans fats. If I enter this item in my daily log, the trans fat grams will not be included. I try to avoid trans fats, but if I eat a food with trans fats, I would like it to appear in my food intake data. Any suggestions?
