    Hi. I’m not sure if I’m overthinking this or not. Many of the recipes on here don’t break down the Servings so I’m not sure how to figure out how many vegetables, fruit, fats, etc. to count towards my daily allowance. For example, if the recipes has 3 different chopped veggies, 1 tbsp of fat and the recipe is a Serving Size of 6, how do you figure out serving size? It’s obviously not 3 veggies for one meal.

    Is there a rule of thumb or an app that can help me to figure it out? I don’t want to go over my daily allowances and want to be able to figure out serving sizes in other recipes too. Hoping someone can shed some light on this for me.

    Thanks in advance! 🙂

    Leigh-Ann,

    Ok so I am not sure exactly what recipes you are referring to, but overall the recipes that I am creating are broken down, but I can see how you could get overwhelmed by the various components like veggies fats etc. So generally speaking you don’t need to overthink or stress about vegetables. Vegetables are not deal breakers, at least in Phase 1 as you are not consuming potatoes and other starchier veggies. That said, I know you want to track everything accurately. I personally use MyFitness Pal to do all my own tracking. I love that app, every food imaginable is in there. So when in doubt you can go ahead and create a recipe in there with the exact ingredients in the recipes you find on the site and it will break it down based on how many servings you want the recipe to make.

    Does this make sense? If not send me a message and I will try and elaborate even more.

    -Jess
