Default How do you measure your greens?

When measuring fresh greens (and entering them into FitDay), do you pack them, or leave them fluffy? Or somewhere in the middle?

Somewhere in the middle ... since you can't go more than 20 or 30 cals wrong with leafy greens... I have a lunch container that's four cups so I eyeball dinner salad etc.

I estimate that a cup is about a handful.
