I wish they did. Destroy, that is.
Oh yeah, I know that. But it's the weight that I'm talking about. 200 calories in a raw 4 oz chicken breast is 200 calories in a 2.5oz cooked chicken breast.

But since this thread, I have weighed out a 4oz raw piece of chicken, cooked that same piece, and weighed it afterwards. The cooked weight is what I use as my portion and I use the same values on the label.

Hope that makes sense.
