I have to agree with Elvensong. I know the calorie-counter is used by many fellow Sparkers, but I generally advocate correct weight and caloric intake for an individual, and then use the formula-
[-calories+exercise=weight loss]

I also have a personal aversion to weighing and tracking food. I told myself a long time ago that I would never do that again. So far, the weight is coming off and I have made many other healthy choices,

LIta thank you , that was very helpful that was about the size i used so yep I am on track.

Don, that is okay I know some people don't use the nutrition page as much but for me it is one of my main downfalls. If I don't write it down I definitely have no idea what is going into my body.

“There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.”

When you get to a plateau, think of it as a landing on the stairway to your goal. And maintenance is a lifelong plateau, so a bit of "rehearsal" for maintenance isn't the worst thing in the world

Sounds VERY yummy! However when it comes to portions and sizes of various food items I am one of the WORST people to ask. Although I buck the SP recommendations on this, I have a personal aversion to tracking food and weighing/measuring portions. I know that this is there as a strategy for me to use if I feel I need to, but thus far I've been able to accomplish a lot just following the intuition I've honed through years of trial & error.

I know we have MANY folks out there who are far more conscious of this sort of thing though and I'd wager someone will come along with some tips on this!

So I am making homemade cabbage, celery and red potato soup. How big is a 100 gram potato?
I only added 5 small red potatoes but am now trying to figure out the calorie content of the soup.
