    Chicken, turkey, steak, etc... after cooked.

    Rice, pasta, oats, etc... before.

    oats are a cheao carb source that adds diversity in the diet. I use oats, rice, WW pasta, WW flour, cous cous and sweet potatoes

    I weigh everything before, i find its more consistent. However chicken and other meats seem to be "calorie bombed" after they've been cooked. So raw values dont match nutritional values found on back of packets.

    weighing depends on situation

    for example if a receipe asks for 100g of raw chicken then weigh it raw obviously
