Hi everyone, I am a newbie, just starting out on Low Carb, having done Cambridge diet for 2 weeks (and unable to take it any more).

When the recipes give the numbers for protein, fat, carbs etc - is that for the full amount of the recipe or for one serving of it???

Thanks

It's the calories per serving- it's calculated by taking the sum of all the ingredients in the dish and dividing it by the number of servings the creator entered. Not everyone is good at indicating how large the servings are, but they have to have something entered for the total number of servings, so you can figure it out yourself from there. I find I often have to take the prepared dish and then measure or weight the whole batch to know how large a serving is (like if it makes 4 cups and has 4 servings, you know they're each about a cup).
