    I'm not talking organic foods specifically, but the complete elimination of things like high fructose corn syrup, trans fat/partially hydrog oils, sucralose/aspartame (and all other artificial sweeteners), and preservatives of any kind.

    How do you calculate the calories/carbs/proteins/fat for cooked food ? The sum of its parts ?

    Well honestly I stopped counting calories a long time ago. I've learned to just eye it.
    Maybe I'm not understanding your question; yes, you add the parts to get the total. Have you been eating raw foods again?:squint:

    I rarely eat any of the shit on your list. If I do it is seldom and usually on accident.

    normally when you cook food, you loose some nutrients and lose some calories too (if you burnt the food a little etc.)
    some ppl cook in oil, i just don't get how they can account for the oil that has soaked into the food. 5 tablespoons of vegetable oil is 100% of the daily recommended dosage of fat :ugh:
    i'm just wondering how to account for the calories/ratios in a cooked meal since there is some 'processing' involved compared to eating tuna outta the can or having a pieces of broccoli.

    If you are going to stir fry food and you're concerned about the fat content use those spray oils. 5 tablespoons of oil is probably too much for one meal, although much of it burns away anyway. Also you're looking at the percentages based on a 2k calorie diet, which I sure as hell don't follow. Most of those recipes for stir fry meals include ingredients that have little to no fat so the added oil is encouraged for a balanced meal.
    Just don't burn the shit out of your food and don't boil and drain your veggies, like broccoli, and you have nothing to worry about.
    Don't go eating raw eggs and raw chicken just because it's nutritional value is maximum. Sushi is alright though.

    I cook almost every meal I eat. When I do go out for dinner, its usually a rediculously priced 4-star restaurant or something. I can do a better job in the kitchen than most corporate places, and I don't eat things formulated in a beaker from chemicals you need a license to buy.

    For the most part, yes.

    Not on purpose, just happens to be what I eat/buy I guess.

    It's hard enough finding the right foods to eat clean and still get my calories. Having to only eat natural foods would be much tougher. If you can do it, props to you.

    If you try to avoid "processed" food you are more than likely part of those who love to eat soy and it's one of the foods which is the hardest to find in its non GMO form. Natural doesn't mean much anymore.
