I look at it like this - if I'm going to eat it cooked, it makes sense to me to weigh it cooked. The juices and fat that drain off contain calories that normally are not consumed so why would you want to count that? Weigh it cooked!

The nutrition information on Spark is usually for the cooked item. So if you had 4 ounces of raw, that would equate to probably only 3, maybe 3.5 ounces once cooked. So you likely have slightly overestimated how many calories you consumed.

I kind of wish there were more "raw" entries available on Spark, as in many situations it is just a whole lot easier to weigh the raw product first before adding to a recipe.

Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

So I scooped out 4 oz of Ground Turkey for my lunch/dinner before I go to work and then ate it... But I weighed it before cooking it. Was I supposed to cook it and THEN weigh out 4 oz?
