I love going through online recipes looking for directions on how long to cook X cut of meat and about 2/3 of the recipes I skim over say things like "This recipe uses chicken/turkey instead of beef and other red meats, so it's much better for you!"
And by "love" I mean "want to leave a flaming bag of poo on these recipe writers' doorsteps".
So I was googleing "change fitday percentages" to see if I could get the app to stop freaking out that I'm eating too much protein and fat (My impression of the FitDay App Goblin: U've exceeded your daily protein limit!!!!1!! OMG I have to put this in RED so that u understand what you did wrong. Uz gonna diiiiiiiii !!! Y un no eat carbs?)
Couldn't find that. But I did find this:
The Three Primary Macronutrients and Their Importance
A quote:F*ck you, Fitday. I'm going to go eat ALL THE SATURATED FAT EVER, just to make your tiny little electronic brain explode.Glucose is essential for the body, as it is the preferred source of energy in our brain, heart and central nervous system. For this reason, your diet should consist of at least 45 to 65 percent carbohydrate

I live in a small town - only one grocery store. It recently changed to a Save-a-Lot. My first time in there, the cashier asked, "Did you find everything?" I said, "no, you don't have cream." She said, "oh yes, we have a lot of creamers!" I said, "No, those are corn syrup, not cream." I got the deer in the headlight look! So SAD!
