Default Confused by daliy calorie reports

I do not understand how the daily calorie reports are figured? When I add up the calories for each day of the week and divide, I get a way less number! Any explanations???

maybe it's starting the calculations on a different day than you are?

Default Also confused

I'm in the exact same predicament. I've checked and rechecked calculations and always come up with a different % of calories. And when I add up the calories from the three categories, it never matches my reported total calories. Here's today's example: (sorry the columns don't line up)

Grams Calories % Cals
Calories 1,558
Fat 53.3 479 25 %
Saturated 4.3 39 2 %
Polyunsaturated 3.2 28 1 %
Monounsaturated 6.3 56 3 %
Carbohydrate 219.2 872 46 %
Dietary Fiber 9.8
Protein 139.5 556 29 %
Alcohol 0.0 0 0 %

What am I missing? Thanks in advance!
