When I make a recipe and portion it out, should I weigh the portions or measure? The weight and measure comes out 70 calories difference. But seems like the measuring is not accurate for this particular recipe.

    I always weigh. Measuring isn't as accurate.

    When cooking some moisture is lost, too. So trying to use a cumulative weight with raw ingredients is going to be much different than the weight/calories of the cooked dish.

    I weigh - I take the total cooked weight of my recipe and use that to set serving weight

    So like it it’s 200g (for example) - I make my serving size 20 so every serving is 10g - then if I eat 50g I log 5 servings and go
