First of all, this is my first post and a huge word of thanks for an absolutely brilliant resource.

Secondly, my request. I think I read somewhere else on the forum that nutritional values are stored as floats. Would there be any possibility of displaying them in this format or is there any specific reason why all values are displayed rounded up? I know it probably doesn't make a massive difference, but on a personal level, it'd be quite useful to have values displayed to at least one decimal place.

Just a thought.... many thanks again!

I'd enjoy being able to use decimals too. It doesn't make a huge difference, but I'm rather anal and like everything to be exactly as it should. laugh

I agree! If I eat 10 things or servings with .5 g fiber in each the system will show I had 10 g fiber when really I only had 5 g.

Yes! Second this completely. I often eat small things with, say for example, .4g of saturated fat. That means it registers as zero!! Please change this - alow decimals.

Need to show decimals on all food tracking and weight!!

It is key to have decimal points for one food here and there it doesn't make a huge difference but it adds up quickly! I do not understand why they are not decimal points. I would think it would be trivial!

+1 for this.

Please can we have values to 1 decimal point.
I eat many foods with 0.4g of fat which round down to zero.
This would make myfitnesspal hands down the best food & exercise diary.

Bump for order, detail, and reducing margin of error.
Please do it, there are at least 6 other threads about this.
EDIT: Sorry for bumping, I thought this thread was in Website Suggestions/Feedback

Is there a converter from metric on the site?
