I downloaded the app yesterday and have set it all up today. I have about 3 stone to lose and I'm hoping this is the way to do it. I'm also considering doing 5:2 along side recording everything in MFP but I need to get my head round MFP first.

My main source of confusion is when recording meals in the diary. How do I know I'm recording the correct amount of calories if that makes sense? For example tonight we're having a home made chilli using lean mince, with rice. I did a search and there are options that say they are home made and come up at around 365 calories per portion, does this sound about right? I tried 'creating a new food' but it seemed a bit confusing (or maybe I'm just dim). How do I know I'm recording the correct amount of calories?

Anyway any help or pointing in the right direction would be appreciated.
