I am trying to keep track of my daily protien intake. I have come across several references to the amount of protein in meat, such as, 7g of protien per ounce of lean beef, chicken, etc.. My question is, are these type of numbers based upon the weight of meat before or after it is cooked.

That depends from site to site.

Most people here use www.fitday.com

You can specify cooked/uncooked weight on there too

There is also this site: http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/

However, it's a little confusing.

Generally the package refers to the state it was in when you purchased it from the store. As for websites, you'l have to read carefully. You could always try adding it on fitday as a custom food to make sure it is right.
