I was thinking of starting mfp as have just downloaded it and it looks good. however I am confused as to how I work out how many calories are in food that is not scannable.

Eg tons guts dinner is chilli con carne so 1 onion, 450g mince, 400g tinned toms, 200g kidney beans, 1 packet seasoning mince.

I will eat 1/5 th of it. How do I work it out?

Thank you!

Yup, add in your own recipes and it will do it for you. You can also import recipes from the Internet but have to check the list they give you as Ingredients. Gets easier as you build up your own list
