If this was on the package label, then it included the weight of the bones in the serving size amount. And you would not subtract it.

I would not deduct the weight from the bones. Typically, the nutrition information is based on eating what is there, period. I think you're good.

Don't stop tracking, even if you have to go back and change it sometimes. Far more advantages to tracking than disadvantages!!!

Best of luck!

How do I weigh food with bones?

For example, I ate some buffalo wings. The nutritional info said 100g was 200 calories (just an example) I had 150g worth of them for lunch

After I ate the meat, I had 44g of bones left over.

Do I deduct the weight of the bones from the original amount? If so, that would make it actually 106g.

I wonder- because if I deduct it from my total then it can cause me to go under 1200 calories per day and then I have to add more food to my tracker.

This is the part I don't like about tracking, having to go back and change the information.

Thanks,
Kelly
