    weighing after or before

    i searched this up but i am still confused, i weigh all my food i dont measure inless its a liquid. When i looked at the nutrional information on my checken brest it said 16 grams of protien in 100g of chickenbrest so i eat 200g of chicken (measured before its cooked) but after it is cooked it weighs about 100g so i was wondering if i was getting 16g of protien or 32g of protien?

    and another thing i was reading that rice is suposed to be weigh after cooked that dosent make any sense?

    You should measure your meat before it's cooked.

    Where are you getting your nutritional values for your rice? Get them from the package which will list them either as dry rice only or as both dry and steamed.

    I weighed out some raw chicken breast, and then again poached.

    100g of raw chicken breast weighs 75g after I poach it. How does yours weigh 50g? Do you dry the hell out of it?

    Not if your source of nutritional information is from the package.

    Your package weighs it as packaged. Raw.

    Note to self: read posts more thoroughly before posting.

    I thought you were wondering why his were half the size of yours.

    Good point, though.

    Poaching probably retains a lot more water than, say, grilling.

    A little, sure. But they still drop weight. I've tried it after pan-frying and the same thing. I entered both into my custom fitday so I can weigh it out either way.

    So it gets smaller after you cook it, right? So if I cook a 8-oz breast and it weights 7-oz after cooking it, I'm getting the same amount of protein?

    No, the protein magically disappears...



    Yes, it's the same. And 8 ounces raw generally turns into about 6 ounces cooked, at least for boneless, skinless chicken boob.

    Why don't you find a protein source you don't hate?

    No kidding!

    There's a WORLD of food out there!

    That being said, chicken flavours up pretty nice. Tried any sauces?
