Measuring meat cooked or uncooked?

Soo....

If I wanted 50grams of protein out of chicken breast, that would be roughly 8oz uncooked?

because ive been weighing all my meats cooked. And that would mean 8oz is roughly 70grams of protein cooked?


I never payed attention to that detail before. The label says 4oz=24 grams of protein so ive always measured 4oz as 24 but cooked.

every coach that has given me a diet as always said 8oz chicken but never specified cooked or uncooked.

its never held me back before. I just started thinking about that as I was writing out a meal plan for one of my bikini competitors.

have I been jacking these girls up with a lot of protein?

How were you planning on weighing each portion uncooked?

I posted a thread like this.

Protein on package stays the same even if it cooks down a lot.
You can eat less and have same protein.

i've always weighed my meats/poultry out in grams pre-cooked. what makes it easy for me is buying an over sized muffin tin and then weighing out my portions and baking each serving in the oven. chicken is a little more difficult but ground beef, ground turkey, etc is pretty easy this way.

Cooked.

35g chicken breast = 10g protein
28g lean steak = 10g protein
40g white fish = 10g protein

Personally I do raw. Usually weigh out 200g raw chicken Breast then cook.

Or bulk cook say 800/900g raw chicken breast for 4 meals or so

I'd say your best bet on getting accurate macros per gram would be to weigh meat cooked considering a lot of fluid will be expended. Just look up the specific macros per cooked gram which you can easily find on a database like myfitnesspal. Weighing cooked weight is also easier allowing you to cook in bulk and ration food afterwards

i have everything measured uncooked weights as the type of cooking can remove varying amounts of water i think (though i havent looked to far into that as tbh so long as its consistant:

to "mass cook"
weight the food out uncooked for x number of portions
cook
weigh the entire thing again then divide the number by the amount of portions

Label on back is for generally uncooked with all taken into account (water, etc). Not hard to cook in bulk. Weigh 8oz or whatever. Put in pan, repeat, then put in oven, etc. Not that difficult.

I weigh everything raw for consistency. My rice especially will weigh different each time I cook it depending on how much water I use. Chicken varies too depending on how and how long I cook it. I weigh out 10 servings raw, cook it, weigh it again and divide by 10 to get my servings.

I do the same thing, but take the square root and then count away from the difference

I do the same, but really either way works as long as you are consistent with tracking that weight.

nutritional information on labels is ALWAYS for UNCOOKED.

it would make zero sense to put labels for cooked food on uncooked food.
