CC not recognizing all fish as fish servings.

One of my goals is to eat fish a couple of times a week but Calorie Count apparently doesn't recognize catfish or tilapia as fish. When I eat Salmon it counts. Am I doing something wrong?

Id suggest just trying again bc I was able to log Tilapia, haven't eaten catfish lately so I wouldn't know about that. If not, look up the nutritional information yourself and make your own entry...Ive done that too, and u can customize it to even a meal if theres something you eat often

I used both of them in a meal under my meals. Could that be the problem?

I suspect that logging them as a meal is the problem. I have the same issue with the 5 servings of veggies goal when I log them as a recipe. Also, are you eating a full serving?

Do you log the generic version? That could be the problem, too.

HI!

When you log a custom food or recipe, our database is unable to categorize - this goes for the goals for fish, veggies, fruits, etc. The way we are able to track servings of fish is if the item logged is found within the fish & seafood category in our database: http://caloriecount.about.com/calories-fish-s eafood-products-ic1500

While the goal remains unmarked in Calorie Camp, you can take pride in the fact that it was accomplished in real life! :)

Hi there,

Thanks for your help. I tried to do this - logging food by selecting it from the Fish and Seafood Products list page - I clicked on three different items and my log still did not register a single serving of fish.

Will this be fixed soon?

Thanks,

L

Whitewalker, what serving size are you logging?

Just to test it out, I have logged one full serving size of shrimp (3 oz), and then a few other ones (one halibut fillet, baked scrod, etc.) just to see if it would recognize any of them - it didn't.

I'm not sure if this will reply to everyone, but thanks everyone for your suggestions. It looks like I found my answer.

Thanks again!

Hi-

You have to submit your day before the fish serving will be logged. If you are doing so and it is still not being counted, please PM me with the url of your food report on which you logged a serving of fish and it did not count so I can look into it. Thanks!

Rachel

Thank you.

Are there any future plans to allow users to mark custom foods with servings of fish?

Yes, we are looking into the possibilities! Thanks for you feedback.

I keep trying to log canned kipper or sardines (contained in the cc database) and they're not being counted towards my fish goal?

WAIT JUST A MINUTE.... this is a problem with CC. This is a problem that annoys your users.  Does management have any intention of fixing this or is this a problems they select to ignore both the problem and their users?

Allergy Remedies
Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
