I think the slim values given are incorrect. What should I do?

There are multiple reasons why slim values may seem incorrect.

Understand how slim.in changes your diet

It is possible that slim values of certain foods you eat every day (like chapati or rice) may surprise you. We would strongly recommend reading How will being slim.in change my diet

Branded foods and menu items

Even though we say fruits, vegetables and milk are treated differently on slim.in, it is possible that you may find that, say, a salad you just ate at a cafe is not marked as Zero slims. The problem is that since we do not know the ingredients in ready foods, we cannot adjust for the presence of zero slims foods. For example, the menu item may say “Salad”, but it might come with an olive oil dressing. In these situations, we go by the nutrition values given and calculate its slims.

However, if you believe that the item is really a zero slim food, feel free to not track it or track its zero slims entry

Recipe ingredients

It is best to check the quantity of the ingredient in each recipe. That way you know whether it matches how you would prepare your meal. Sometimes, the name might be misleading. For example, you may feel “Roti” has very high slims. If you looked at the ingredients, you would realise the recipe is for Tandoori Roti, and not, Chapati

Cup, Tablespoon and teaspoon definitions

We use the internationally accepted definitions of Cup (240ml), Tablespoon (15ml) and Teaspoon (5ml). Since your cup may be a different size (most probably smaller), the slim values may look incorrect at first glance.

We have made a mistake

It is possible that we have based our calculations on incorrect underlying nutrition data. If you believe that is the case, please send us an email on care at slim.in (ideally with a screen shot).
