  • @Katijay Thanks for your post. I just added a tablespoon of hemp seeds to my salad dressing (2 portions of dressing). I use the same brand of Hemp Seeds you do from Costco. I was surprised by your statement as one of the reasons I include hemp seeds in my diet (in moderation due to the fat) is for the Omega 3.

    I checked the package in my cupboard because it was a mystery why Omega 3 would not be listed in the Nutritional Facts,. Surprise! I found it listed both on the front and back of the package (not in a user friendly way if measuring amounts), but not in the Nutritional Facts. Interesting.

    JFYI....I like to gain all my nutrients through food, but a couple are very difficult to acquire as I am a whole foods plant based vegan. I do supplement with a vegan algae sourced Omega 3 as it is a challenge.

    Thanks for your post....Wishing you much success!

  • I am new to this site and love the simple process of adding food to a daily food chart. yesterday (March 13) morning I chose a protein breakfast, 1 cup or 3.5 oz of ground turkey, sauteed with small amount onions and mushrooms. my protein already reads as 74 g; that can't be correct, can it?

  • @CMV21

    It does sound like the entry is off... According to the USDA, 3 ounces of ground turkey is ~23 g of protein. I'd double check that it's entered correctly and consider reporting this as an issue.

  • I've just put 3.5oz ground turkey in and it's come out as 17.3g protein.

    Check how you've entered it, maybe you put cups rather than oz, or something. I've often thought, "hey, why is that vegie soup 1,300kCal?!" and realised that in the recipe I'd put 60 tablespoons instead of 60g, that sort of thing.

  • In the app you have mentioned that there is no b12 in dairy products like milk etc l. Is it true,

    But as per NIH there is b12 in dairy products.

  • YYou had mentioned there is no vitamin c in amla.

  • Hi Amresh,

    There is vitamin B12 in dairy products, like milk. However most products in the UK do not list the B12 content on the nutrition label. I would recommend searching for a generic item rather than a brand name product. If you choose a food from a source like NCCDB or USDA, they will have many more nutrients included so you can track them in Cronometer.

    Unfortunately, we do not have a vitamin C value for amla in our database. There may be some in the product, however we do not have a value reported. Sorry about that!

  • Hello is there a way to see my total protein on a graph? I think it is listing the percentage of my energy total, I think... But I really just want to see my over all total without adding each food item on paper. Save the trees! 😄

  • Hi Proteincentric,

    You can see a graph of total protein intake per day in the Trends tab. Select protein from the drop-down menu from the single nutrient chart:

  • Thank you! This app is sooo good and sooo detailed! 👌

  • Dear All,

    I have high Cholesterol. How to reduce it?

  • @Ramesh

    The most well-researched dietary pattern for reducing cholesterol is the Portfolio Eating Pattern. Each component can reduce cholesterol by 5-10%; when added together, the results can be pretty impressive.

    Here's a handout if you're interested: https://www.hamiltonhealthsciences.ca/wp-content/uploads/2019/08/PortfolioDiet-trh.pdf

  • Is high cholesterol chronic disease like diabetes and hypertension?

  • @Ramesh

    We typically consider abnormal blood lipids "dyslipidemia" and it's a risk factor in the development of cardiovascular disease. With most health conditions, genetics AND environment work together to influence disease outcome.

  • Dear Sir /Madam,

    I have total 1.7 bilirubin which is high but doctor told me it's normal.How can I reduce my Bilirubin with diet?

  • @Ramesh I'd encourage you to speak with your MD as it's key to understand why your bilirubin is elevated. To keep the liver healthy, avoid processed foods, eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, plant protein, and limit sources of saturated fat (found in fried foods and high fat animal foods).

  • Hi I have lost weight and now want to maintain and ensure good nutrition. I am 47 kg, BMI 20. Body fat estimate 20-25%.

    i recorded my daily foods today but am getting very little protein according to the Cronometer.

    I estimate my protein requirement to be around 60g/day. Today, i ate 5 chicken meatballs, 1.5 home made salmon patties, 3 large eggs. The Cronometer reads that I’ve only got 25% of my requirements. This can’t be right!

    please help as Can’t possibly have that much protein in a day!!!

  • Hello there!
    It sounds like you're doing great with your protein intake :)

    By default, Cronometer divides your energy between the macronutrient targets so all your energy is account for in your macronutrients. This is called Macro Ratios.

    It sounds like setting a fixed protein target might be more what you're looking for though? If you'd like to set fixed targets that help you meet your minimum requirements, head on over to the Settings tab. Choose the Targets tab, then find Macronutrient Targets. Track your macros as Fixed Values, then enter in the targets you'd like to use!
