I would ask you the same question as KATSMEYOW did. Also, did you enter the number of servings for that recipe and have it calculate that for the nutrition info per serving rather than the entire recipe?
Are you checking the nutritional values of the foods you are adding before you add them to the recipe? If you know the calorie count for something specific you can always add it to the database first and then add it to your recipe, it takes a little longer but I do it all the time so I know my calorie counts are accurate.
I just entered a recipe that had nothing but oven roasted halibut, rosemary, 1 lemon and a handful of olives, all drizzled with 2 tsp of oil. THe calorie count came back as over 1000 calories due to 800 calories for the halibut and 22 calories for ONE LEMON! That is totally wrong. I'll bet the calorie count for this recipe isn't even 500 calories. This was the 3rd recipe I've entered and now I don't trust it
