A lot of the foods in our database that only have serving sizes are entries from other members. If it's a recipe, as long as you know the total number of servings the recipe makes, then you can do the math to figure out the nutritional info per serving. Calorie counting is never an exact science, but that should give you a good ballpark estimate.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen

Hello,
Ok, so I will admit; I am a very lazy dieter. I absolutely loathe tracking food which is not already tracked (to the point where I avoid foods I like simply because they are not already tracked on the website ^^'). My main problem with this currently is the fact that most foods are counted in servings, rather than grams.

How exactly do I know how much is a serving of something? (For example, I am currently making some coffee cake and every single food I've found listed is in servings... Is it one piece? One plate? 100g?)
