Just an update I inputted my first recipe today and it gave me what I felt was a very close analysis and calorie count. I did find it time consuming to input everything though. I will definately use it again. I'm glad other members have had success with the site. I think it is a great tool.

I use their nutrition values a lot, especially for meats.

But, today I used their "daily needs" calculator. They put my total daily calories burned as 1927. Spark gave me a maintenance range of 1460-1830, and I've been eating in 1700-1800 range. I've been losing a half pound a week. Perhaps that's why. I always suspected Spark's maintenance ranges were on the low side.

What's great is that the database NutritionData's info is based on is from the USDA and you can download it yourself to play with -- put it in a database on your computer, for example.

See: www.ars.usda.gov/Services/docs.htm?docid=8

I've been using that for a couple of years, useful when SP entries for things don't include an actual weight measurement, only cups etc.
