what i do is break it down. i analyze the food that i want to eat, figure out what is in it, then get a caloric book for over 1000 foods then i figure how much of what is in there, get the total and then figure out or break it down to one serving size. One serving would be your consumtion of said food for you. Example.... an omlette with everything.....see what is in the omellet, figure out how much was put in("eyeballing it usually works) total up all the calories from the ingredients. This is of course one omelette for one person. This is how i do it. Tediouse...yes....worthe it... definitely. Extra time means a healthier meal

On the Sparkrecipes.com you can put the recipes on there where it says create a recipe. It will not only give you calories, but will also break down all the nutritional values, as well you can add to your nutritional value. It also allows you to add to your favorites, on the nutrition tracker. It has a recipe box you can put it in also.

I would put the WW recipe into the Spark calculator and that will tell you the calorie count per serving.

thanks Ripped, I thought of that after the face! I just told her to access it threw her add foods link on the nutrition tracker. It will be time consuming to convert all the recipes that way, but that is the only way I could think to tell her!

I too used to be a ww member and was diligent in the point system. What I have done is tossed their way of monitoring food and now track here. I still use the recipes from time to time, but I just break it down to the ingredients. It takes a bit of time, but I have developed a much healthier way of eating. Take the Shepherd's pie for example. It uses lean ground beef, mashed potatoes and veggies. So once I dish the food on to the plate I get out my scale and measuring cups. I can either weigh the food for the correct ounces or I use the cups. Then I go and list 1/2 cup mashed potatoes, 1/2 cup lean ground beef and 1/4 cup veggies. That way I am getting as close to the actual portion I am eating for my calorie, fat and protein count. I know it takes a little more time, but in my opinion it has been well worth it.

Here is her question:
"My question was I used to be a member of weight watchers, and I was on the point program, so I never figured out any of the nutritional values because I was just told how many points I needed. So of the recipes I have, some have all the nutritional values included, and some don't. I want to know how to figure how to convert the ones that don't from the points to the nutritional values, and then include that here instead of choosing the dinner selections from the food page here."

Anyone want to take a shot at it for me?
Thanks and God Bless,
wildflowerr
