Yep that is what my coach said too all veggies measured raw. I measured the kale that way but then didnt know how to put in MFP ...the answer would be...just enter it as raw kale in MFP not as chips for more accuracy. Thanks for helping me figure this out in digging deeper. I have been flustered wondering how this diet could be so high in carbs....(NOT!) you know us newly carb deprived friends need some help. Hahahaha thank you sweetie.
