Default Need help regarding making the right selection of chicken breast entry

Hello guys. Big howdy from a newbie here. I"m having trouble making the right selection and would like your suggestion on what is the best way to do this. I want to input 10oz of boneless chicken breast raw uncooked weight into fitday. How do I do this?

Please check the attachment for the options fitday gives.

I weigh my chicken cooked but of those options, I'd go oz, boneless, raw (YAC)

This is exactly what I use; I use this when weighing the cooked chicken.

I weigh it after cooking using the selection above. I think it would be more accurate weighing after cooking.

Issue I'm having with this method is that you can have various ingredients and the weight can considerably go up. Correct me if I"m wrong.

I suggest using the raw value, then adding any additional ingredients (i.e. "fat", coatings, sauces, etc.) that might be added during preparation. That's what I usually do.

Regards,
Michael
