Has anyone tried meal prepping with cronometer?

I have been thinking of starting to meal prep weekly at the start of the new year. I would still want to be able to count my calories and nutrional info. I was wondering if anyone was able to combine the two on here successfully?

    I make large batches of chili, spaghetti sauce, soups, etc and then freeze them in Souper Cubes 1-Cup Extra-Large Silicone Freezing Trays I got on Amazon.

    I write down the weights/amounts of the ingredients as I prep. Then entering them into a new recipe, or changing the weights/amounts of a previous recipe, I enter the number of 'cups' the recipe will fill. It's usually between 16-24 cups. It's very easy to figure the cups simply by filling the Souper Cup trays.Then into the freezer.

    As I take them out and use them, I simply select the recipe and enter the number of cups I am thawing out. The "recipe" calculates the number of calories per cup, or serving, for you. Usually, 1 Cup per person is plenty. Which means I can make sauce and chili and such, enough for 24 meals for one person.
