Press enter into to deduct this food from your complete day-to-day allowance. If you have taken in greater than one serving, the calculator gives you the ability to multiply it by the servings you had. It will then immediately subtract the added points from your daily allowance. The very same holds true if you did not have a whole serving. Use the divide button to allow the calculator to know how much less of a serving you had.
