Question help with recipes

Hi, I am a former WW'er. I had no problem converting recipes to WW points. There was a ball park that 50 cals = 1 point, and it was pretty easy to cook that way. I am having issues with LAWL in figuring out how to take a recipe and figure out how many Starch, protein, Fat etc is in it. I have used some of the recipes in the LA recipe book, and also from this site (some of the recipes are so good), but I have tons of cookbooks, but don't know how to convert them. Does anyone have any hints or tips with this?
Thanks in advance, Terry

Terry.. The best way is to go by weight and measurment of the food you're cooking.. If you're cooking up a stirfry recipe and you've got 7oz of cooked chicken, then I'd count that as 1 protein.. If your serving also includes 1 cup of veggies, then that would be 1 veg... Follow?

After a while, I got pretty good at converting old recipies to new LAWL standard. At this point, I kind of do it without even thinking about it, so I think it will become second nature for you too..
