I’ve just started on the diet and bought the recipe book. Tonight I cooked a tasty “Roasted Red Pepper with anchovies” (page 80 for anyone with the book) which contains mushrooms and pine nuts (this is different to the recipe of the same title on this website). The book says this recipe comes in at 120 calories. However, I’m keeping a track of my food in the FatSecret app, and this exact recipe clocks up 284 calories! Up until now, the BSD book and FatSecret have a similar calorie count, but this is concerning as I’m tempted to believe FatSecret more as the recipe contains pine nuts and olive oil.
Does anyone have any experience of calories not being consistent with calorie counting outside of the BSD book? Thanks!
