this may have been addressed already but I couldn't find it,... Why is there no option to build a recipe from all the ingredients and then have the app divide the total calories into portions?? Then I could save a portion amount of my recipes in my fav meals instead of guessing or adding an entire 1200Kal recipe.

I have tried doing this a few times myself and approximating the portion amounts of a certain food & ingredient found in a recipe to get a rough calorie/nutrient count per portion. But the app often doesnt allow for a small enough amount of a given food to accurately calculate an amount for individual portions.

This would seem to me to be a pretty Basic function for any diet app to have. Why isn't it available here?

I don't use the app but the desktop version has a feature called My Cookbook that does the summing and division

The app does the same. When you first start the recipe it will present a field to enter # of servings.

Exercise entry
Every time I try to add exercises, I receive "An unexpected error has occurred" when I submit it. Nothing saved.
