I have a question about never seeing an explanation as to what a serving size is. I look at your recipes and cannot find anything actually saying what a serving size is. For example, 1 cup or whatever. What am I missing?

That's an annoying part of this site. You have to click on the ingredient and expand it to see the serving size. There are many flaws here, and IMHO, this is one of the most annoying.

Yes I just use the serving size on whatever I am eating and verify its the same as on FS and enter it as a decimal. the FS program converts it correctly this way it seems.

there is no standard for serving size

it depends on what you eat, how it is package etc

so there is no answer to your question....

Daily Carb and getting at least 60% of your calories from FAT tips
There is no need, especially when you're making progress. If you can control calories without resorting to eliminating foods you like keep doing that.

Dietitians are the worst. Try a nutritionist or Dr. Berg who is on YouTube!

Does this app tell us how many calories we can eat a day in order to achieve our goal weight?
