When we edit preferences in 'My Food Diary' we can quickly and easily see the TOTAL CARBS of food and how much of that is from FIBER or SUGAR etc. But with FATS there is no breakdown option. I want to be able to see how much SATURATED FAT I have in my diet.

Take Olive Oil for example, it will reach your RDI for Fats faster then it will reach your RDI for saturated fats. So you are safe to go beyond your RDI in fats with olive oil, meaning I can use it for a quick boost of KCals when I have not reached my RDI in saturated fats.

I Feel to Reduce weight it is necessary to have awareness to food labels. Follow this habit of Counting calories to know what kind of food you are eating. You should know how to locate a food's caloric content and its serving amount. Comparing labels between different foods and beverages is vital for making the improved choices necessary to lose weight.

That would be helpful. I think also figuring complementary protiens but that can be complicated since they don't have to be eaten at the same meal. I think that one would be beyond the scope of this site.
Food should always taste amazing. The more amazing the more it will satisfy.
Exercise is a pathway to a strong healthy more youthful body.

I personally feel You can help stop overeating and maintain blood sugar levels by eating a little about every three hours. Getting too hungry will backfire on your planning on eating healthy and diet control . Always try healthy, filling snack, such as an apple and some other fruits. Smart snacking will assist you to lose weight.
