I cooked some chicken breast earlier - It was 490 grams before cooking then 325g afterwards. When adding to my food list should I show pre-cooked or cooked weight?
It's a mater of choice, hard work and a bit of OCD !!

Cooked weight, most of what has been lost its water and some fat.

You have to look up the weight as you weighed the ingredient. If you weighed it raw, look up the raw measurement. If you weighed it cooked, look it up cooked. They don't always agree exactly, but it's close enough. What's hard is when it doesn't say whether they measured it raw or cooked, which can make a big difference.

it's kind of a pain when you can only find the cooked amt when it is an incredient in a dish==impossible to measure once cooked. Daily burn tracker site has many foods listed that are not on this site.

Enjoy the summer and the sunshine.

Try Miracle Noodles. Not flour/carby pasta but a great carb free option.

How do you measure your body fat percentage?
I use a Tanita Scale. Works great.

Cut the carbs, sugar, HFCS, and that includes fruits (for a bit). Get rid of the carbs and your body will change. Read labels. Sugar is everywhere, ketchup, pickles and not to mention a ton of sugar ...
