  • Cooking oils

    I often wonder, when you cook with butter or cocunut oil, do you add to your calorie count and fat count the total amount used? Or, does cooking it reduce the amount? really trying to track my fat intake seeing as its the most needed macro, but the hardest to eat.

    Cooking can slightly reduce protein content of certain foods, but the effect is so minimal as to be hardly noticeable in any relevant way. As for fats, my understanding is that the full caloric value remains after cooking, so count the whole amount you've added to the meal as part of your totals for the meal.
    "The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."

        depends on what you're cooking and how you're cooking it. fat melts, long before protein, so some of it may be left in the pan. however, i will pour that over my meal and prefer this to adding another non-aniaml fat to the meal.

        don't obsess over this. eat meat, fatty fish, avocado, etc. get good fats.
        As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

          I don't worry about it and just add the total to my calorie count for the meal. I never know what to do with bone broth however, so I typically assume that it is at least 1 tablespoon of lard and include that in my totals.

            yeah, i figure about a tablespoon of tallow or schmaltz from my broths too. i still usually add butter to it anyway.
