I have written my own calorie calculator based on my body and my BMR. It's a spreadsheet and also breaks down your macro nutrients.
I use my totals with the sparks tracker. I have a calculator for burning extra calories so I just eat are required to hit that number. Nobody is perfect, I can screw up about 2 meals a week and still keep my progress.

If we are on an organized ride and I eat at the rest stops, I usually don't eat lunch and enter it as my lunch. At home when we ride I don't usually eat much and enter it as snacks.

Today I carried Vega nitritional stuff in a water bottle along with Vega Hydrator in another water bottle. On a rest stop I had an avacado - - - -probably 300/350 calories in all during the ride. The fitness tracker said I burned 1, 800 calories ( i was out over four hours) The nutrition tracker will say I went over daily calorie allowance but doesn't take into account the calories burned.
