Related to the question asking if OP can include a serving size by weight to one of her recipes, is it possible once I've entered all the ingredients to say that this is 3 portions, 4 portions or whatever so I can tell the fatsecret calorie counter that I'm only eating that proportion of the calories. The example she gave was meatloaf and it's a lot easier to weigh your portion of that that to weigh a portion of a pasta dish or casserole.

Although I can see that it gives me the total of say, 960 calories for my recipe, I can't see a way to tell it that I'm only eating 320 of them. The only other way I can see to do it is to put all the ingredients in as a 1/3rd or 1/4 or whatever the case may be, but then if I'm hungry or not hungry and want to eat more or less than usual, I can't see a straightforward way to alter my own recipe calorie count without starting back at the beginning.

You can say you ate 0.75 of a serving
