    when i see the nutritional info for x oz of meat, would that be raw or cooked? i had assumed the info i see on calorieking/fitday referred to the weight of the food after it was cooked. a buddy at the gym today told me that the weight you see listed is for raw food.

    Well, considering no one eats raw food, I always assumed it was cooked.

    i always assumed it was for uncooked. they don't know how you are going to cook it or how much grease/oil will be used.

    for burgers and stuff i always assumed the fat content to be lower (if grilled) after it was cooked because some grease drips out.

    pretty sure it's raw unless specified on the package as prepared vs unprepared.
