Thanks Denise!

It's a pretty short recipe... just an ingredient list, really. I suppose the simplest solution is to just make a new one and delete the current one. I was just hoping for an "easy fix". When you "enter a food not listed" under the search, you *can* enter net carbs. I was hoping for that with this. I guess it's a bit more complicated when you're handling multiple items, as with a recipe.

Sorry you're frustrated with that! If it's a recipe that you entered on SparkRecipes, it has to be edited through SparkRecipes. Unfortunately, only the main nutrients are listed through SparkRecipes, but I would recommend that you either edit your recipe and double check all the ingredients information, especially if you are using any manually entered items. The net carbs are not generally something that is calculated for items that are not manually entered, so that could be part of the issue. To double check the ingredients you are using, you can try searching for those on the nutrition tracker page to view those values. If you find any that are incorrect, you may want to correct those there (if they are items you manually entered) or enter it yourself so it will have the correct net carb value listed so you can use it for your recipe.

Otherwise, you can add a new one and delete the old one.

I have a marinade recipe which I use frequently. The carb count is only 1.3g. Clearly, I entered something incorrectly somewhere. I'm a low-carber, so this is a critical point for me.

When I enter this on my Nutrition Tracker, the *net carbs* now come up 13g. I can see there's a decimal missing there. I've tried editing the recipe, but I can't open the portion which lists net carbs.

Additionally, although I can add it to my Favorites, and edit it to or from that list, it doesn't show up under the "edit manually entered foods" from the Favorites drop-down menu.

I'm incredibly frustrated with it at this point. Anybody have any suggestions, other than to delete it and start all over from scratch?
