Hello fellow low-carbers,

I am looking for an easier software to use when analyzing the nutritional value of recipes. I find the one on this site bulky and without many of the amounts I need. I would be happy with a free version but am willing to pay for one. Has anyone tried any other software that analyzes recipes?

I use this calculator http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp to figure out how many calories are in the dishes I make. Then you can enter that info as a "custom food" entry here on fatsecret. It will be saved for future entries in your diet calendar.

I use an app called 'Lose It' on my ipad for this purpose. It's easy to use and after I get the nutritional data for one serving, I pop that into FatSecret as a 'custom food'.
