Thanks for the info. I just need to learn to use meat as a side dish instead of a main dish. It is hard to break that habit though. emoticon

Yes, your meat should be weighed after cooking. I used to be a big meat eater, but since I am older, sometimes have to remind myself to eat meat once in a while. Lean more toward vegetables, even over pasta.

Oh? You really should weigh it after it has been cooked... although it seems impractical when preparing a recipe. (How do you know how much to buy, or thaw out...)
But, the weights of meat in SPARK (and most other datatbases) are usually for cooked meat.
The meat weighs even less after cooking... your portions are even TINIER! lol!

I weighed the meat raw. I actually don't know what it would weigh cooked.

Are you weighing the meat raw or after it is cooked?

When I eat beef, I eat 3 oz. But, that is rarely. I usually eat chicken or seafood. Then I allow myself 100 grams! lol!
I try to fill up on veggies.

That is crazy! I wasn't sure how much a breast was.

It is amazing to me that a serving size of meat-- 3 oz. is so small! I used to think that a chicken breast was 3 oz's but when I finally weighed it out I was surprised to see that it was usually 6 or 7 oz's! All this time I have been doubling my serving size without even realizing it. emoticon
