    for those watching their weight

    This is a great website that I use all the time for DH who is watching his weight

    http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php

    Just type in the recipe (or cut and paste if it is online) and you can get the calorie content for the entire recipe, or divide it into servings.

    Thank you...this is awesome. I'm on a weight loss journey (and its going to be a long one). I belong to sparkpeople.com and have been diligent about counting calories but its tedious to try and figure out how many calories I'm having because I cook homemade all the time. This counter does all the math for me....THANKS

    I have been keeping track of my calorie intake since the end of March. So far, with exercise...have lost nearly 70 lbs. Unfortunately have a ways more to go but this site lets me know exactly what I eat, the only way I have ever been successful!
