Should I weigh my food raw or cooked?
Also note that food should be weighed on a food scale. Measuring solid food via volume (i.e. cups, mL, teaspoons) can cause very large errors, as volume does not equate weight. A common food scale can be found on Amazon here.
For things like chicken, beef, & pork - weigh the raw meat. For things like pasta, cereal, & oatmeal - weigh the dry food. For things like bacon - use the weight recommended on the package. Some bacon lists the “pan fried” nutrition info.
The most important thing is to be consistent. If you consistently weigh your meat raw, that’s great. If you consistently weigh your meat cooked, that’s great. Consistency is more important than raw vs cooked.
