Question Just a bit more clarification please...

It's really easy. I generally enter the entire recipe, then make a note in the name as to the total number of servings. That way I can divide it as necessary when I eat a portion (or two).

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the directions. However, when I make a recipe and it has a quantity of one, fitday will calculate for the whole batch instead of dividing the ingredients up. So if I enter a recipe for a pot of mushroom veggies (not a real thing) that was for 6 servings, if I choose 1 serving it gives the whole amount for the recipe.

I hope that was clear, I am finding it hard to communicate that if I have a recipe for 6 servings FD will only give out the nutritional info for the whole batch not one serving. Can this be avoided?
