  • Hi all, just wondering re: calorie count, do we weigh vegetables before or after cooking? For example, 200g broccoli would weigh differently after steaming. As would 100g fish. Thanks.

    Vivianb hi I haven’t found the answer yet it seem to be whats one wants to do. I have read answers from both camps.
    I went with weigh before as I thought it would give me a little Leigh way when cooked!

    Cheers,
    Tim.

    Hi Tim, thanks for your response. I also found answers pointing to doing it both ways. I was wondering whether anyone had come across what Michael or Mimi actually suggest for 5:2. Cheers,Vivian.

    Hi Vivianb I have read 3 books by M & M and can’t recall it getting a mention.
    I have read on a forum, can’t remember where that some do and some don’t! Not much help I’m afraid. Its a WHO [ Way of life ] thing so please yourself is best. if you have’t already read the FAQ
    at the top of this page please do.
    Cheers,
    Tim.

    Thanks again Tim, yes I have read the FAQs & I’ve read 2 of Michael’s books & I can’t remember anything being mentioned in either about when to weigh. So I’ll just keep doing it before cooking on fast days. I gather this’ll cut down the actual calories, which may be a good thing. Cheers, Vivian.

    Most packaging gives the details for food before it’s cooked so that’s how I weigh it.
