New site feature: Custom Calorie Calculator

I just added a new tool to the Nutrition Information page: a calorie customizer.

It’s simple to use, just put in the calories you want for the day and it’ll tell you how much heavy cream to use. It will also tell you how many grams of carbs, protein, and fat you’ll be getting in each meal. It’s pretty awesome =) One thing to note: some of the fine details are different from what you’d get on the nutrition labels – among other things I discovered the protein content and calories for the heavy cream were off by a tiny amount. This calculator is using all the latest information I have available. and using the USDA values for Heavy Cream. The heavy cream you use may have slightly different values too (which I think is what happened, I probably had values in for the “Darigold 40” I get from Costco).

For fun, it’s also right here:

    This should be useful. But does everyone doing Keto feel comfortable with milliliter measures? Maybe outside the USA I suppose, but I bet some people who buy cream in half-pints would like the option of seeing the output in Fl. Oz. (29.5ml) or Tbsp (14.7ml).

    Of course now I’ve actually looked those numbers up … 30 and 15 aren’t that hard to remember. Still, how many times does 15 go into 128? Eight and a… uh… half? Well, not really a big deal, but having a Fl.Oz. button checkbox on this widget would be a nice touch.

      Not a bad idea. That’ll be my next update.

    Hate to say this, but I’d rather see everything in grams! My scale is in grams, I zero it out, I don’t have to dirty anything but my shaker cup!

      Here is your solution: put a measuring cup on a scale, measure your stuff, write down how much the brand you are using weighs for that volume.
