Serving size usababs — Nov 09, 2017 01:07PM PST

Hi there, I am counting my macros and when I put in all my ingredients under My Recipes I only can set up servings from 1 to.....
How do I know the portion size of 1 serving in oz?
I know I can do this with any kind of food in oz, g, tbsp.....
Unfortunately not with a recipe from myself.

Thank you for your help.

Thank you for contacting us with your question. As you mentioned, we currently take the total calories and nutrients and divide by the number of servings you designate. We will definitely consider adding a field to note the serving size for future updates.

In the meantime, many users will add the serving size to the name of the recipe so they will remember it.

Thank you for using MyFitnessPal and we wish you success with your weight and nutritional goals.

Kind regards,
MyFitnessPal Staff
