    Calories for recipes????

    Shop Now
    Hey guys!!!

    I'm at the point where I have 20 pounds left to lose and I am calorie counting to get the weight off!!!!

    I have a TON of awesome Paleo/Primal recipes that I would love to be able to use.


    What website are you guys using to find out how many calories, carbs, protein, fat per serve????


    Thanks for your help!!!!

    SparkPeople has a sister site called Spark Recipes. You enter all your ingredients, tell it how many portions, and it calculates your info by portion. If it is a favorite recipe you make a lot you can save it to your Sparkpeople log so you don't have to enter it again.

    myfitnesspal has a pretty stellar user experience for desktop and mobile food tracking. You can load your own recipes plus it has the largest data base of preloaded info.

    I use myfitnesspal. I plug in all the ingredients and divide by serving. For example if I make paleo brownies I plug the ingredients and measurement. When the brownie is done I just cut it in the portions I want it. It's just a ballpark though.

    On livestrong, you can enter in recipes and it stores the calories and macros. You can just select the recipe when you make it and it loads all the data in. Very easy to use, just use the option that doesn't make the recipe public so you don't need to fill in all the "cooking" details.
