    I use DietPower, which is a nutrition software program. I've owned it for about 4 years. It has a great recipe calculator, among other functions. The best $50 I've ever spent on dieting or exercise tools.







    Measurements:
    Bust - Was 42" ~ Now 36"
    Waist - Was 39" ~ Now 27"
    Hips - Was 46" ~ Now 38"

    Fitday is nice, but sometimes it's hard to get an accurate account of the nutritional information. Most of the time, I find something they already have listed and use that as my estimation. I'm going to check out the website BWEST recommended though, and see if that helps.

    I made a big batch of white bean chili today. I can't imagine it's too terrible. It has white beans, chicken, onion, seasoning, chili peppers, chicken broth and shredded montery jack cheese. I sat down and calculated EVERYTHING I put in and the big pot of it is about 3,802 calories. But how do I break that down into serving sizes?? I guess I could measure it cup by cup into another container and see how many cups total it is. But what a pain in the arsh!!

    Thanks for the help everyone

    I think weight watchers does, but it's the paid site. Nutrisystem.com has a great FREE site also that might help.

    I thought about that too Rene, but fitday will tell you what each ingredient has in it and it is a terrific calculator. BUT, when you are baking or making something outside the original realm of cooking, then when you mix all the ingredients together, there's no telling how much is in a serving of the recipe as a whole. If there's a way to do it, that would be absolutely awesome, because I use fitday on a regular basis and it looks like Athena does to since she has her journal posted. For example: Cheese dip(essentially is Rotel, Velveeta Cheese, and milk) fitday will tell you how many calories are in cheese dip, but some things aren't made quite the same, so there's going to be differences in the substituted ingredients. We know how many are in Rotel, velveeta cheese, and milk, by the nutritional facts on the label, however when you mix them together, in 2 tablespoons of the dip, you're going to be getting a little bit of each ingredient.

    How do you calculate Rene? Can you use fitday like that or do you do an estimate of it? I often make things harder than what they have to be and I tend to do things the long way.
    Have a great day!

    Hey Athena, I wish there was a site that did this too. Even simple things like Cheese Dip taht just has a few ingredients are hard to determine how many calories you're actually getting. I did find a software that will do it. It's $24 to buy, but there's a 20 day trial version. I downloaded it and put in a few ingredients and it did quite well. I'll PM the information to you.
    Have a great day!

    Question

    I'm looking for a website that will calculate the nutritional information of a homemade recipe. You know, you put in the ingredients and it will calculate the nutritional value for you.

    Does anyone know of a website that offers this?

    Thanks
