I'm currently on a cutting diet and have managed to drop from around 20% - 12% body fat. I'm getting really strict on maintaining my calorie deficit and keeping my protein/carb intake and strong levels.
Question about weighing meat...
Do I weigh chicken breast or lean beef BEFORE or AFTER i cook it? Normally i wouldn't care (as i've kept it consistant during my program) but the more strict i've become with my diet the more accurate i want my intake of calories and protein to be.
For e.g 100g of Chicken breast = about 140 Calories. Should that be based on cooked or uncooked chicken? Theres about a 40g weight difference :S
I'm trying to mix my meals around while maintaining 1800 calories a day.
