do you do it before you cook it, or after you cook it?

I've long known I over eat my meats... but I was reading something in a magazine and wasn't sure if you'd weigh it uncooked or cooked.

I do not weigh it at all typically I look at the package and if it says 4oz per serving, 2 servings I just cut it in half after I cook it...and do it that way etc....

I estimate as well, but I've read on MFP from a calorie counting perspective to weigh it raw.

weigh it raw. But if you've heard the rule that a serving of meat should be the size of a deck of cards, that should be a cooked portion.

I'm going to have to weigh a chicken breast next time I have a raw one... a cooked one weighs 8oz.... 2 servings..... *pout*

I'm gonna do a trial starting tomorrow to see if 4oz of chicken along with sides is enough to keep me full (8hrs passes between dinner and bedtime for me). With my stomach being an issue at night it might make more sense to eat 2 servings of chicken with dinner...and keeping me full longer.

I weigh raw. If for whatever reason I forget, I usually just find a log entry on MFP with it for cooked weight.

After months of weighing though i can usually eyeball it.
