i heard there's a recipe calculator that helps (you put in what you put in, it tells you what each serving is).
I have the opposite problem. When I eat stuff from home, I can roughly guesstimate how much I ate and put in the ingredients individually. When I go out, since I live outside the US at the moment for school, no one knows how much is in their ______ around here. Lunches out with friends are killing me in the guesstimation department.
I think the lunch I had with a friend yesterday (lunch/dinner, really... I had a light breakfast before that and once I got home I didn't want to even think of food) spark people guesstimated it to be about 1100 calories. I'm dubious as there was a *lot* in that silly lunch set (green tea, soup, smaller than full price main course,12 pieces of sushi, desert)... though in EU portions (what a waiter brings you when you order _____) are still smaller than the US.
I basically found a chicken terriyaki veggi bowl for the main course (it was terriyaki chicken on veggies/salad with a scoop of rice), a mixed sushi set for the sushi (200g sounded about right, 6 of the 12 rolls were those tiny things with rice + bit of fish, 2 nigiri and 4 reg slices off a cali-like roll, but I'm bad at weights), miso soup for the soup (couldn't find the actual one but it was still light... though it had a crab stick in it), and a tempura banana for the desert though we got 4 banana slices and 2 slivers of apple (they didn't have any green tea ice cream left, so we tried that -_-; )
