  • Hi. I’ve just started the 5:2 but need clarification on when to weigh food to count calories. On page 136, Mimi says to weigh your food after preparing it. Does this mean after cooking it, e.g. weigh your piece of chicken once grilled, or weigh it after you’ve prepared a chicken breast for grilling by cutting the skin off it? (Or the weight of a carrot roasted as opposed to when it’s peeled prior to roasting.) I’ve calculated both ways and it makes a significant difference to calorie count when only on 500. I’d be grateful for help with this. Paula

    Hi – I always weigh my food before cooking.

    Thanks Sidney – presume that’s giving you weight loss results?
