This answer can vary depending upon who you ask and who you are working with. You can measure your food however you would like. No food can be measured to 100% accuracy unless it’s broken down and tested (nutrition labels are key). Raw measures tend to be more accurate. I tell my clients when it comes to weighing all your food it will vary, for example, sauces, oil, and condiments are difficult to weigh out. You can always try to measure them if not do your best to eyeball portions. When it comes to vegetables or any type of greens some may eyeball the portion, use measuring cups, but it’s always best weighing with a food scale.
For everything else; such as meats, starches, and other fats (peanut butters, nuts, etc.) it’s always best to weigh out your portions. Just make sure when you are tracking your food you log it correctly, for example, if you are measuring raw ground chicken, then log it as raw and if it’s cooked then log it as cooked. It really depends on what your preference is and how you do it. Measuring and weighing will give you the best results and keep you accountable.
