Default Calculating the macros in food you cook

Hey guys! So Im going to start tracking what I eat, my question is, lets say I make a crockpot of chicken and beans and such, how do i then know what goes into my bowl? would i weigh everything that goes into the stew and the nutrients so i have a sum macro count in the pot per gram then when i measure whats in my bowl minus the weight of the bowl and just divide it and take an "average"? How do you do it?

First, I would suggest making use of an app like Myfitnesspal. Use a scale and weight every item before entering it in. The app will calculate totals for the entire batch. It will ask you how many servings it makes. Simple solution is to divide up the crock into that many containers (Can we say weekly food prep?) and boom, you now just have to enter one serving and it will give you the numbers.

The alternative involves lots of math, so give option 1 a try first.

Nothing really to add here. As others have said, Myfitnesspal and a food scale are helpful.
