    Question Math handicap needs help calculating macros/cals of a recipe

    So.. I need some direction. Example,,

    I got a recipe for some Thai peanut sauce.

    1 cup Nat PB
    1/2 cup water
    1/4 cup lime juice
    1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce
    1 TBSP cayenne pepper
    1/4 cup Splenda or sugar free syrup


    What is the best way to get accurate macros per ?? serving size?

    I did some searching around.... with more success this this time.

    Does this look correct?


    1) For each recipe ingredient add up total Calories, Fat, Carb, and Protein (if you add 8 servings of pasta add pasta calories per serving x 8, fat x 8, carbs x 8, pro x 8)
    2) Combine all ingredients and weigh in Grams
    3) Divide total recipe weight in grams by 28 (28 grams = 1 oz)
    4) The answer is your total number of servings and each serving is 1oz. (total weigh of all ingredients / by 28)
    5) Divide your total amount of servings (ounces) by the total amount of calories, fat, carbs, or proteins to get your calorie/fat/carb/protein per serving amount.

    looks rite but why not just add all cals and macros up and then weigh in oz? say u have 28oz.. ur usually gonna at least have a 4oz serving so ud have 7 servings.. divide total cals and macros by 7 and ud get what was in each serving.. from there just weigh it out in 4oz servings when ur ready to eat

    Thanks.. that way would certainly work as well and is along the lines as K.I.S.S lol.. I like it.

    Even if you were doing one ounce servings, as in the case of the Thai peanut sauce, you could still weigh in ounces and round up/down should your recipe add up to 28 3/8 ounces.

    Thanks very much for helping with this... my brain just hurts when I try to anything but simple addition.
