    Calories, fat grams, protein grams, carb grams, fiber deductions from
    carb grams, claims of other types of deductions from carb grams - They
    all have error levels that are pretty bad. Folks try counting to the
    nearest half gram or five calories or whatever end up with counts that
    appear to have far more digits of accuracy than they actually do.

    Yet counting works anyways. Why? Because dieting processes don't need
    anywhere near the accuracy that counters target.

    Not that I'm excusing grossly wrong numbers or deliberately wrong
    numbers, just that paying attention to results corrects the errors.
