    Hi fellow CC'ers,

    When I was on Slimming World i always used bbcgoodfood website/SW mag for recipes, but now i'm CC'ing and still not sure of rough calories from just looking at recipes, so wondered if any of use any websites/magazines that have the calories listed, as i've found since starting to CC i'm eating really simple meals with as few ingredients as poss or packet/processed stuff with the cals listed.

    Thanks

    Diet:
    mixure of calorie counting and Rosemary Conley's less than 5% fat choice
    I use Spark People's recipe section as they list the cals etc and most of them are made by people on diets so they are usually low fat/cals etc
    Healthy Recipes and Recipe Calculator From SparkRecipes.com

    the only downside is a large majority of them have the american weight system of cups etc but it's still a useful site for a browse and there are UK members posting as well.

    I selected calorie range but when i calculated on mfp they were coming out higher... so not sure how accurate...
    Think a lot will get easier once i know rough calories, as my head is programmed for SW still.
