Make a 'recipe' out of the marinate recipe.

Weigh the full amount made. Marinate your meat.

Weigh the remains.

What was left behind is what you track, spread amongst all the meat pieces.

I personally do not track it -- but I'm not going for making this an exact science in maintenance, and I've been pretty lucky about not needing to do so. It's such a small part of the whole that I don't worry too much about it. (I do try to account for sauces I put on top of food however -- though even those I don't generally actually measure unless they're really calorie dense.)

Looks like you may be an athlete, though -- are you in a sport where you periodically need to "cut weight'? If so, you may need to track everything during those time -- probably more for the salt than the calories.

Starting Weight: 268 lbs. (November 2010)
Quasi-Maintenance: 165 lbs. (June 2011)
Goal Weight: 150 lbs. (reached December 8, 2011)

Size 22W to Size 4

Currently maintaining within 5 lbs. (+ or -) of goal. I weigh daily, but also use a tape measure and the fit of my clothes to guage how well I'm doing.

How do you track marinades for grilled steak and other meats? I primarily use one that is mostly olive oil, soy sauce, and lemon juice. But since there's always plenty left in the bag, how much gets into the meat? So if there's about 1 T olive oil and 1 T soy sauce per steak, how many calories, basically, is consumed by me I guess would be my question?
