    a "cup" of rice varies between 120 to 200 grams when I weigh it out. I think the weight is just varying depending on moisture of the rice. which way do you guys prep?

    I weigh/measure rice before it's cooked. That added water doesn't change the macros of the rice. 1 cup of uncooked rice typically equals 2-3 cups cooked.

    Number of grains of rice. Precision is key
    I round it out and consider 13,000 grains to be a cup

    hey jack im cooking three days worth of rice split over many containers so it is harder to figure out that way. and evom, yes I am that psycho when it comes to properly documenting my macros, especially carbs lol.

    Did you know that cooking rice, letting it cool and then reheating it will alter the calorie content? That doesnt get your OCD worked up, does it??

    I'm fucking with him a little bit but yes, it can actually be done. It can reduce calories by as much as 60% actually.

    New low-calorie rice could help cut rising obesity rates

    I wonder if things like quinoa and couscous are similar?

  16. Just weigh everything raw to be consistent enough. And always go by grams.

    Measure rice and potatoes by grams. Meat by ounces.

    I notice a lot of people weigh meat raw but I like to grill tons of chicken and then weigh it afterwards as I fill my tupperware. I have seen a ton of different macros for a oz of grilled chicken breast. hope the one im using isn't way off.
