Should I cook and trim my meat portions after I have cooked them? Alot of moisture and fat is lost in the cooking process of steaks and such, chicken if it has processed through a brine cleanser. So yeah?

i trim before I cook. I weigh all my stuff cooked, fitday has raw or cooked choices.

I always measure raw. Dunno, just seems more accurate.

I tend to measure cooked, just because I add things, such as olive oil, that get into the meat and change the weight.

Wouldn't it still make more sense to weigh it raw though? Olive oil obviously doesn't have the same nutritional content as the meat, so it doesn't seem to make sense to lump them together.

Don't think I'm quite following that logic. Olive oil is a fat source...and meat is meat. Do you think olive oil adds more protein to the meat or something?
