I've found that checking serving size is so important when reading labels and using the food tracker. I've had problems getting some of my recipes in the right serving size for the food tracker. Any body got any insight on using sparkpeople and figuring out serving size? Thanks

Easy measureing. Since servings are not always easy, for things like cereal, I keep the proper serving size measuring cup in the container. I get the exact serving size without having to pour into a measuring cup.
You get the exact serving size rather than having more and gaining weight from improper serving sizes.
Good Morning All. I know we all Love to try new recipes and posting them to SparkRecipes.com...PLEASE When entering a new recipe, put the serving SIZE (eg. 1 cup or 4 oz etc..). It's quite difficult to make a recipe and then divide it by the number of servings to find out the serving size. We all try to watch our serving sizes and acturally measure them out all the time. It would be so helpful to include the serving sizes in your recipes for all of us. Thank You.You are all the BEST....OXOX
Take the time to look at the foods you eat and figure out the serving size. When you can break a serving size down to 2 tbsp or 60 m&ms, you can enter that number in Spark People. Instead of entering "1" for the serving size, enter the actual number of product that makes up a serving. You can then enter a partial serving and let spark people calculate it for you!
For instance, did you know that a serving of dark chocolate m&m's is 60? I added the food as a favorite but didn't enter "1" for the serving, I entered "60" serving. Then, when I eat the m&m's but I only eat 5, I'll enter 5 on the serving and Spark People will calculate the calories etc for me!
