How to figure out a serving size for a recipe

Weighing it is the most accurate weight. Weigh your pan or whatever you are making it in before and after you cook. Subtract the weight of the pan and divide by 6.

Unless it is something small that naturally settles and packs together, volume measurements are inconsistent, and small inconsistencies really add up.

Ingredient variability will introduce density differences. 1g of butter vs 1g of celery have completely different calories and macros. Weighing the pan pre/post isn't enough, you need to weigh the individual ingredients.

Edit: Of course it all depends how pedantic you want to be. When I'm in serious mode, I go to the gram.

I've not eaten off plan, and this week, I've gone up a couple pounds

Sounds like your plan needs adjustment. Remember that the key to losing is that you need to consume less calories than you intake. if you think that a change in diet will help that, go for it, but without adjusting the total calories you're taking in it won't matter if you're doing a regular diet, keto, or low fat.

Does anyone know if splenda causes you to gain weight??

It's a low-calorie sweetener. On its own, it cannot cause any substantial weight gain. At 5cals per pack it's pretty much negligible.

Keto eating
I've done it before. It's... ok. Doesn't suit my present needs. Depends entirely on your goals. If it's working for you that's really good!

There's a pretty active keto subreddit as well as one dedicated to exercise/lifting weights that's keto centric.

Good luck!

Imagine working at Cadbury and trying to diet. I'd fail. I'd fail so hard.

You can do it.

My Recipe book
Seconded on Ingria's suggestion. I measure everything and add it by mass, not volume. Gram precision trumps everything.
