    I've adjusted some of my settings after talking to a nutritionist friend. He said for someone of my age, weight, activity level, etc., that the 'fat' threshold was set about 40% too high, the 'carbs' were about 40% too low, and the sugar was unreasonably low (ie, my limit was ~33g / day, and he said 50-60 is what he suggests to his clients, even those trying to lose weight). Good info.

    I'm finding it very difficult to eat enough protein without blowing my cholesterol or salt out of the water in one fell swoop. In general I'm not that worried about those things, but it's an interesting problem I haven't yet been able to solve...

    Does anyone know if the nutrition meters adjust for exercise? Ie, I eat more carbs that I'm "supposed" to, but I generally run 8-12 miles a day, which I need the carbs for. It doesn't penalize me for it or anything, so guess it doesn't really matter; I'm just curious.

      well I guess my sugar is way off, I have mine set to 100g, but almost all my sugar comes from fruit?

      How do you readjust your settings?

      It does make sense with the sugars as I always go over although I don't touch sugar except fruit!!!

      You can adjust all of your limits in 'settings.'

      I know...me too. I want to eat two eggs tomorrow for breakfast and now I am waaaay past my cholesterol intake. One day won't hurt me right?

      Egg whites instead of whole eggs. Avoid processed deli meats. Um, what else...

      How about fish and nuts? I think chicken (without skin?) is lower in cholesterol than red meat too.

      lentils, chickpeas mungbeans. stuff like hummus or try finding those things in indian food. protein without the other stuff and it tastes good. no offense to vegans but they tend to take those foods and make them gross.

      I don't really eat processed meat at all, so that's not much of an issue for me. I snack on nuts, which helps, but you have to eat a LOT of them to get enough protein (which I think would make me sick, in addition to all the fat). I don't think I can bring myself to eat just egg whites -- they taste terrible to me, and I'd feel bad about wasting the yolks. I eat some fish, but not a lot because it's expensive, and because of the mercury issues eating it regularly isn't really realistic. :P

      (Also I don't eat red meat at all, so that's not the issue.)

      While there's cholesterol in egg yolks it's good cholesterol, and there's all the nutrition that's just pretty much in the egg yolk.

      So far I don't think it adjusts at all. I haven't seen any change to my nutrition stats when I exercise.

      No, no adjustment (like on myfitnesspal.com). You can manually adjust your carb limit to reflect what you need and prevent going into the red. I had to for the same reason as you: running.

      If you go through the setup again, you can tell it your normal activity level, which revises the goal numbers. You can also manually set the numbers in the setup. It doesn't change your records, just the meters.
