What exactly are you needing help calculating? For example, I might make a sandwich for lunch. I enter the bread, lunch meat and cheese individually into my tracker, then I also enter my apple, carrots and yogurt, or whatever else I'm having that day. If I'm making a big batch of something, I use the recipe calculator on I enter each ingredient and how much I'm using. Then, I divide the finished product into servings (I usually just use a measuring cup to get equal portions) and plug that number into the recipe to get nutrition info for my chosen serving size.

I'm relatively new to all of this SPARKstuff, so I am trying to be as accurate as possible in my reporting of what I eat. However, when I pack a lunch or make food at home, it isn't as easy to calculate.

Any suggestions???

Trying to be honest with myself, help me out! emoticon
