    Primal Blueprint Expert Certification


    Just a quick question about logging foods at FitDay.com .


    I bought a 320g steak from a butcher. After cooking, it shrunk down to 200g. When adding the steak (Beef steak, braised, lean and fat eaten) to my food log, should I set the amount to 335g, or 200g?


    Thanks!

    Nick

    Usually for meat I'll log the raw weight if possible, and do "beef steak, raw" as the food...


    But if it's already cooked I think that would be the post-cooking weight.

    Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

    Nick,


    I use the raw weight, only because I like my steak almost raw. How do YOU like it?

    @FlyNavyWife Do you cook the steak despite logging it as raw, or do you eat it near-raw?


    I was under the impression that cooking food changes its composition significantly, which would make me think that it should be logged as cooked.

    @kuno1chi I like my steak to be medium-rare or medium.

    nick, I cook it.


    Then again I do like my steaks pretty darned rare, so ... yeah...


    I think if the food item is specified as cooked, the weight would be the post-cooking weight. Makes sense to me.

    Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

    I've done it both ways.


    Cooking drives a lot of the water out of the meat, and it's normal to lose some fat. So, there will be even non-water differences between raw and cooked.


    I now do cooked only.

    I do a lot of approximations (eg raw eggs when I couldn't find what I wanted).


    Does anyone know how to get it to calculate a whole recipe?


    As in, I know you can do a custom food by typing in the details, but I've made some soups etc, so I could do with adding up 1 leek, 2 onions, 1 squash, butter...etc etc and having it calculated for me?

    @NorthernMonkeyG If there's an easy way to create/calculate a whole recipe in FitDay.com , I haven't found it yet. Let me know if you do.

    There are times you "guesstsimate". One meal won't kill you.

    If you are really struggling then it is probably because you are buying too many prepared foods and not enough vegeatables, meat and fruit.


    I don't allow for ketchup, relishes, salad dressings etc. I know that, but I know that I'm consistant. I'm probably about 100 calories shy because of that.

    Oh well!
