Question about food weight

  1. Question about food weight


    I just have been thinking about how I usually weigh food and account for their calories. Are you suppose to weigh your food raw and calculate the calories for the raw weight, or weigh the food again after you cook it and calculate the weight you get there?

    Because today I remeasured some food for the first time after cooking it and one specific piece of chicken weighed an ounce less then what I measured it initially at. This got me scared that I have probably been eating less than I thought I was.


  2. Uncooked
    M.Ed. Ex Phys


  3. Usually it specifies; some sites give data for both raw and cooked. Eg. nutritiondata.com
