I've tried searching already but how much is in a "cup". Everyone is talking in cups.

What do you mean how much is in a cup lol. A cup tells you how much is in a "cup". A cup is a unit of measurement. That's like saying how long is 1 inch.

Ok in the post "Am I eating enough - help please" you say you have

1/2 cup of brown rice
3/4 cup of peanuts
etc

Does that mean I am supposed to guess how much you eating? I apologise for not know how much a cup is.

You can get a set of measuring cups at Walmart for a couple of bucks, no need to guess

No, you're not suppose to guess. That's why I included the measurement of 1/2 cup(uncooked) so you wouldn't have to guess.

8 0z = 1 cup
4 cups = 1 quart
1 quart = .25 gallons

Just an example. You can convert almost any measurement.
