Weight of meats?


When people say of the meat they are eating and the weights, is that uncooked or cooked? Im planning a meat spending spree at the weekend and adding a lot of proper food to my diet.

    Cooked, as they can contain water before you cook it and you dont want to be counting water thinking its protein.

    ORIGINAL: OoOGazOoO

    Cooked, as they can contain water before you cook it and you dont want to be counting water thinking its protein.

    But surely this only makes a difference to relative proportions as opposed to absolute figures?

    If I buy beef that says 30g of protein per 100g uncooked, I would just know that I'd be getting 45g of protein from a 150g uncooked portion. Why would I care what it weighed when cooked and some water had gone out of it? It'd still have 45g of protein in it.
