Q:

i get recipes from my doctor that are based on a paleo diet ...if i just have the recipe but not the serving size or anyother information how do i count carbs or nutrion value?

A:

Your best bet is to use a recipe analysis website. There are several available, including www.myfitnesspal.com/recipe/calculator, http://caloriecount.about.com/cc/recipe_analysis.php, http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp, and http://nutritiondata.self.com. It will take a little bit of time and effort, initially, to enter the ingredients, but once you do this, you’ll then have the nutrient analysis to refer to for future use. In terms of serving size, you’ll need to determine how much of a food from a recipe you eat at a given time.
