I usually use the "oz raw, yield after cooking" measurements, but particularly for meat, using the food browse tool on the left hand side of the screen instead of the search bar feels more accurate, because there is such a difference in calorie count depending on the cut of the meat. I use calorieking.com and packages to double check values, and when I'm using a marinade or sauce, I log that separately because I use low fat sauces, and fitday's are usually full fat values. In the US, package values can vary by the state you live in as well, particulary if you live in California. Manufacturers are allowed to "round" their nutritional values, and the rules by which they "round" the numbers vary by national and state law. Yet another reason to avoid prepackaged foods I suppose.
If I keep starting over, eventually it will stick, right?
