    How do you all weight your food?


    I was wondering how everyone else measure their food .I do use a scale and measuring cups.I was wondering about meats in particular.Do u weight it precook are afterwards? Here's example they say 12oz of chicken breast is 80 grams is that 12oz cooked are before cooked ?

    Always measure your meats uncooked because this is how the calories and protein are listed - by uncooked weight. After a few weeks of measuring your chicken/steak etc. you'll find that you can pretty much eye-ball your portion sizes.

    Yes, the back of the package most always gives the nutritional value of the uncooked meat unless otherwise noted. I just use fitday and weigh my out cooked. I think its easier.

    i weigh out cooked portions. i know the thingy says they account for it uncooked but a few extra ounces of lean protein won't kill ya. 16oz of 93% lean burger comes out to ~12oz cooked. but i measure out everything. can't add or subtract cals when you don't know where to start.

    Probably none. Doubt you'd share your stash with even the finest of bovine buddies.

    The mad cow crisis was all BS...They had to make up a story because Beelze was eradicating herds...

    I find the best way is to measure it out before cooking.

    I use a food scale for most meats and chicken.

    I use a measuring cup for rice and oats.

    This will ensure that you are getting the correct calories from the nutrional values on the back of most packages
