progress section is wrong

The progress section assumes that you have a whole serving of a food. Example it's saying I have full servings of shrimp maple syrup etc. when in fact I had half a serving of some thing or a fourth of a serving of some thing. When it calculates the daily calories it uses the correct serving that I input but in progress it's just wrong.

I solve this by the "Create a food" option. Such as half an English muffin and then enter half of the nutrient amounts listed in each category. Then "Save the food." And tap " I ate this. "

Hi hrhsun!

If you are unsure how to log partial servings please reach out to us directly at support@livestrong.com.

I understand how mathematically I could created new food for absolutely everything I eat since I eat less than a serving. that takes way too long. So everything I eat if I have less than a serving I have to create a separate food that does not have any of the information on calcium for instance.
I wish to drop the paid service. I will use it only for tracking the daily meals. That portion does work.

In the track function portions work correctly. But they don't carry forward to the progress function.

Hi tmconcan,

It shows your highest calorie foods not the food that ate the most calories of. For example, if you ate 1000 calories worth of kale and 10 calories worth of avocado, it would show the avocado as your highest calorie food. Maybe, to avoid confusion, the wording of that section should be change to highest calorie density.

I think it also messes up the part that says how much calcium you had and how much magnesium. And I know that my milk doesn't show up under calcium. One of the main reason I wanted to do this was to track my calcium and selenium.
OK that's my complaint my happy comment is I've lost 5 pounds in two weeks. I just don't like computer bugs.
