Default My PLAN data for "Fish, salmon, king or chinook, smoked, brined (Alaska Native)"

I love the My PLAN tool and having been logging my food for the past few days. It has been a tremendous help, keeping me honest! :-)

But this morning it scared me because it shows 1 ounce of the smoked salmon as having 123 calories. According to the pack and the information on nutritiondata.com, that is the data for a 3 ounce serving. Since I have already consumed the 3 ounces, please tell me this is a bug, or I am not going to get to have any lunch!

This is a late reply to you, but if you check the USDA nutrition database, from which My P.L.A.N. draws its information, there are 3 or 4 different types of smoked salmon on the list. Most have 33 cal/oz, but one type prepared with the skin, as well as one canned type, are listed at roughly 100 cal/oz. Perhaps you accidentally chose the wrong one to include in your Daily Entry? I've certainly done that before ... usually when trying to find the listing for a particular cut of beef, because the beef list is so long.

You can check the USDA database here.

Kisal nailed it...I did not realize that there was more than one kind of smoked salmon! Thanks again Kisal.

I tried to enter the Mama Lupe's LC Tortilla; entered calories 60; entered fat 3 grams; total Carbs 7g; fiber 4g, protein 5g. I receive an error message stating that there are 75 calories - it adds something like 6.93 alcohol grams which aren't there - I didn't list any alcohol, as there is none in it.

No, it didn't add any alcohol. It's just showing that, when calculating the calorie total, any alcohol grams in the food should be multiplied by 6.93, just like protein grams and carb grams get multiplied by 4 and fat grams by 9. Notice there's a 0 before the * 6.93.

The simplest solution is just to re-enter the food, using the calorie total that My P.L.A.N. calculated. In this case, that would be 75 per tortilla, instead of 60. The label on the product is wrong, probably because the numbers were rounded up to the nearest round number. That isn't an uncommon occurrence, but it's impossible to tell exactly which numbers were rounded off and by how much.

Another solution is to leave the calorie count at 60, but subtract the fiber and enter 3g for the carbs. When you calculate that out, you get an actual calorie count of 59.

Hi, the graph bar displaying C/F/P %s shows



4%C
32%P
64%F

but my amounts are....

21.0C #
163.6P
147.1F

Which is more fat than protein, but the graph looks wrong...

It is in my planner on the 19th August.

Pippa, the percentages shown are percentages of calories. Remembering that carbs and protein have (approx) 4 kcals per gram and fat has 9 kcals per gram, those figures look correct to me.

Y2011 bug?

2011 isn't fully deployed (as I write this.) MyPlan appears to work, but stats for other things like weight and exercise is not.

hi there,

Try refreshing/reloading your browser page after submitting the update . That worked for me.

I couldn't get the date to change. My data entry date for today's weight and for today's food defaults to Jan 1 2000. I entered my weight for Jan 1 2000, then refreshed, but it still shows as Jan 1 2000---in other words, at the bottom of the list of weigh entries.
I tried entering some food for today, then hit refresh, and it ended up entering that food twice, still under Jan 1 2000. Help?? (merci )

That's because the website designers need to update the date range for the database. Right now the range is 2000 to 2010.
