Fiber matters

  • Just joined and disappointed to see that Fiber isn't tracked. Not only important to digestive health, but low-carb dieters need to know this value to accurately track their carbs in a day.

    ME TOO! The more I learn about carbs, the more I realize that some are extremely good for you. Like a tortilla I just had (whole grain) has 18 grams of carbs, but 12 of them are dietary fiber!

    I try not to focus too hard on the carb amount shown, as much as eating good complex carbs, but sure wish that Fitday tracked it better.
  • that's odd. Fiber is tracked on mine. I depend on it since fiber is such a big deal to me and how I feel and stay regular. I have the basic free account.
  • Mine also tracks fiber. I also have a basic free account (just joined yesterday... already I am in LOVE with this site!!!)

    The one thing I personally feel lacking is sugar. Or perhaps I'm the only one missing sugar in my tracking, as you are missing fiber? Hmm..
  • mine tracks it, it just doesn't subtract it from carbs... showing net carbs.
  • I want FitDay to start taking fiber out of the pink slice on the pie chart. I want to see the percentages change.
  • I think the problem is that fiber is not calories. Fat, protein, carbs and alcohol are calories, but not fiber. That makes it difficult to put in a chart as a component when the others are calories.

    you can track fiber, go to your custom nutrition goals, and set it up!
