Hello,
I usually have lunch at the canteen where I work. They provides the calories of what they cook.

Is there a way to log a "generic" recipe (without specifying dozens of ingredients) with a given number of calories in FatSecret? I just want to log how many calories I ingested and not the various nutrients etc.

Yes & no. You can put it in your cookbook but not asked it be published for others to see. You will have to put 'some' number in the required fields but as it will only be visible to you the accuracy isn't important.

I put in a 100 calorie marker so I can quickly put in any number such as 10gm - 10 cals, 100gm -100 cals etc.
For example, if I've had an egg salad sandwich out, I'll add up in my head the approximate bread, spread, egg, mayo etc comes to 240 calories then put in 2.4 serves into the generic 100 calorie item. It's not ideal for exact measurement but it is OK to use this when out and no control of exact ingress.
However, I have been counting calories forever so I am able to assess what each serving generally is. As FullaBella said, you can put it in your own list of foods but not on the general FS list.
Gosh - I hope I have explained it OK!

In the last two days, I am unable to edit my recipes in my cookbook. When I pull up the food item to edit, it takes me to the forum posts.
