Calorie counting crisis!

Hi All,

Having a midweek calorie counting crisis!

I accidentally cremated 300g of pork, which now weighs 100g. My question is, do I log it as 300g (675cal) or 100g (225cal).

Thanks!

P.S it is still edible, just a little tough πŸ˜‚ waste not want not!

    Presuming the food database entry is for raw meat, log the entire 300gr πŸ™‚

    Cooking reduced water, not calories or food density ( unless there was ample fat extraction by specific process, however in general cooking its raw weight calories)

    If you pick a database entry that is for "raw" then use the 300g...if you pick an entry that is for cooked, use 100g.

    I'd pick a higher number for cooked, I'm guessing 'cremated' is going to have less moisture (be more calorie dense) than the average cooked piece of meat. But it's a bit of guesswork obviously.

    Wow, I've known to have kitchen accidents, but never managed that. I think. Just wanted to say thanks for the laughs. And what the other people said. Use raw. I don't think what you did reduced the actual calories. Unless you really burned the outer layer away.
