Is it best to weigh a sweet potato or say, a chicken breast after it was cooked or just take the raw value?

Why?

Thanks a lot

Weigh the calories you are consuming. Unless the calorie guide you are going by says something like "6 ounces Chicken breast (raw): 182 calories, then obviously go by raw weight.

In all honesty though, if you are eating sweet potatoes and chicken breasts you are on the right track and really don't have to worry about over-consumption.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
