I just don't get it, I weigh my meat at 200g raw then it comes to 110g cooked so is that the same as raw? Also. Cook rice and Iknow water weighs on it and some poeple say it adds up to 300g cooked to get your 100g raw but I did a test you see I cooked 100g raw and just took it out and weighed it, it was 245g cooked so guys help me out ? What am I missing ?

Well meat cooked vs uncooked won't change the nutritional value. I was told uncooked but honestly I'm only off 1-2oz when I weigh my meat after its cooked so its not that big of a deal.
Wait you cooked something and it came out to more than what it weighed uncooked... That's impossible since when you cook meat it loses water.....
i measure it cooked for simplicity, but trial and error is your ultimate option for nutrition
I'm just going to stay with my 4 oz of meat cooked see how I go
Why are you worried about the cooked weight? Nutrition info for meat is based on raw weight. Weigh it, cook it, eat it.
Also, cooked weight of rice will vary based on how much water is absorbed. It's another thing that's not worth stressing over.
I'm 34 years old and I have never seen a package of raw meat that provided nutrition info based on cooked weight. That would be ridiculous because the weight of the meat after cooking will vary based on how much water you boil off, and the nutrient content could also change if you drain the fat.
Same protein, yes. Same cals as long as you didn't leave any fat behind in the pan.
my ground round usually loses .5-.75 oz, meaning 4oz cooked is about 4.75 raw. I measure rice dry by the cup....
Most meal plans that you see that are put together by trainers have their clients measure their meats after they're cooked, btw. So, there's a bit of a difference here, I think, based on people's experiences. Every single meal plan I was given when I was competing instructed me to measure my meats cooked and my grains uncooked.

Thanks for the reply guys, ok so I know what your saying with that but I weigh the 200g and convert it in oz raw and that's 7oz now when it's cooked it goes to 4.5oz so maybe ima try and cook 250g raw that leads me up to just over 5oz
Seems like you are making this way harder than it needs to be. Just weigh it after you cook it, keep it consistent, even if your numbers for calories are wrong you are still getting in the same amount day in and day out
