Also, there could have been different brands of foods used for the calculations (there can be some variances with that).

That is definitel frustrating. It could be as simple as the creators of the cookbook didn't account for one or more of the ingredients (for whatever mysterious reason)...

I found a recipe for Black Bean soup that was very similar to one I already have yet it listed the calorie count as less than half of what mine does. I added it into the recipe calculator for a break down to try and figure out why the were so different. The cookbook list it as 102 for a 1 cup serving. The calculator came up with 209 per serving.

I have resisted counting calories because it seems so difficult, and this is proving me right. Any ideas why they are so far off and which one I should go with? Thanks
