I used to put it in the unit that it was listed as, however recently I have been using nothing but ounces, I may switch to grams once I get my favorite scale fixed...I think that if you have a scale that does every gram and doesn't round up then that is what I am going for. I change all the time on this it is just however I am feeling at the time I weigh my food, you come to figure out what you like best.

my preference is to enter the amount given on the nutritional label, rather than one serving.
For instance, if the label says the serving size is 300 grams; that's what I'll enter. Then, when I weigh it, and it weighs more or less; I can enter that, and the SP calculator will give me the right nutritional amount

And then weigh your food before you eat it. :)

If you want it as accurate as possible, use the actual measurement as listed on the package. If it's 22 grams per serving, that's what you enter.

I like to manually enter all my food I eat for my favorite list. when I manually enter the food there is a place to mark for servings before I enter the nutritional values from the product label. My question is when I get to servings when I manually enter the food is it better to mark 1 serving or to enter it as 1 Tbsp, 3 oz., or 15 grapes, or 1/4 cup as an example of whatever it might be. I am really confused as how to mark my serving so it comes out right when I track my food daily. I want my calorie count as accurate as possible.
