How can I find out the caloric info of Chinese chestnuts - without a food scale?

Now that chestnuts are in season, I've been buying sacks of freshly roasted Chinese chestnuts almost every week and eating them like crazy. Problem is, I cannot locate nutritional information in a format that's easy to understand. For example, I don't have a food scale, yet almost every listing I find on Google has one serving of chestnuts as 100 grams. Also, how do I know if the nutritional info is referring to nuts still in their shell, or the actual nutmeats? Thanks to everyone in advance.

Why eggs? Why now?

In my family we've always said that if you have an intense craving for a food that you don't normally eat, it's because your body really needs something in it (and that all efforts should be made to acquire said food-- this has led to some funny stories). Following this (seeming) logic, I am curious if any nutritionists understand why I get insanely intense cravings (only about once every 6 weeks or so) for egg salad sandwiches. Because, you see, eggs normally make me really nauseated. Scrambled especially (I basically can't eat them, for whatever reason). But when I need egg salad BAD, it's literally the only food that appeals to me in the entire world. (And it's ALWAYS egg salad-- I don't have too many other of these sudden cravings.) It doesn't even need to be good egg salad. It can even be warm (yuck). But nothing else seems to fill the need. Any idea what might be in it that my body is so sorely missing? This is perplexing, since I have the cravings again tonight.

Nutrition Tracking Software.

I need software that will track my nutritional intake. It would track calories, carbs, protean, fats and keep them in a date base for reference. It should have a good sized date base of foods already in it and be able to have new ones added. This is for a pre-intel Mac preferably, or online if need by. Free or cheap would make me happy.

Nutrition Information on a can of Fat Free Reddi Whip

In a can of Reddi Wip Fat Free, which claims to contain 40 servings at 5 calories each, are there really just 200 calories in the whole can? (In other words, are they allowed to round down the exact serving size and/or number of calories, when the serving size is so tiny?) If not, what's the max number of calories that could actually be in there, and is there any way I can find out that true exact number?

Can a nutritionist stage an intervention?

I’d like to find an Austin-area nutritionist who makes house calls, if such a person exists.

If that’s not possible, what’s the nearest approximation? [more inside]

How should a weight-lifting, running, vegetarian woman eat to have energy and life forever?

The more I work out, the more I realize that nutrition has a huge impact on my energy. When is the best time to eat various foods during the day so I have the most energy when I get to the gym at 5:30 p.m.? And how can I meet my nutritional needs, given that I'm a vegetarian who likes less-processed foods but doesn't have a lot of time for cooking (and can't handle eating beans every day)? I feel like I need a lot more protein all of a sudden. [more inside]

How useful is fat _really_?

Fat: Insulation, padding, and storage. But are there any drawbacks to having low bodyfat that I might encounter? I'm lowering bodyfat - currently in the realm of fitness but perhaps going to touch on the realm of vanity. There seem to be no drawbacks currently, any exceptions? How much would the benefit be and how much fat involved? Are there optimum amounts (such as a point beyond which increased fat doesn't increase how long you could survive without food)? To what extent (any?) could fat from previous rich eating help nutritionally balance an unbalanced diet later on? To what extent could it not? [more inside]
