ok im still highly confused.... lol sorry. So that 100grams on uncooked rice... I then cook and it turns into 300grams of cooked rice because of water and what not, and then I only eat 100 grams of the cooked weight, does that mean I still count the calories as the 100g uncooked, or would it be 1/3? Sorry if im confusing ya!
Just calculate it as uncooked. I weigh it before i cook it, and on MFP you can find uncooked rice.

Everyone gets it dry vs cooked is the same amount of calories. The question is this:
Rice expands when cooked and due to water gets heavier. So if I make 1 cup (180g) of dry rice, once it is cooked, it turns into more than 1 cup and more than 180g. So if all i want is 1 cup of cooked rice and I have a whole container full or rice to last the week, how many caliries is that one cup? In that scenario it is not the same as 1 cup dry. Is there a standard formula to figure it out or do we have to meticulously measure all of the rice after it is cooked amd convert?

^ but normally rice increases 4x in volume when cooked. So 1 cup of raw rice generally becomes 3-4 cups of cooked rice.
