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.
Food should always taste amazing. The more amazing the more it will satisfy.
Exercise is a pathway to a strong healthy more youthful body.

Oh, don't be such a skeptic. Seems that product cured everything from stretch marks to horny. I keep trying to determine if it fixes credit ratings and teaches how to parallel park.

What is your eating plan KayKay? It looks like you're kindof doing high protein/fat and low carbs.. Are you doing Atkins? If so I have a few things to say and would like to hear your plan.
