Default Has anyone noticed with measuring proteins...PLEASE READ!

Ok, so on Gold, 1P of chicken, lets say...is 6oz RAW. According to the book, if the meat is already cooked, you can subtract an ounce. Ok, so 6oz raw on fitday is 177 cals, 33 grams protein. 5oz COOKED is 229 calories, 43 grams protein. SO they are NOT the same. Weird..I never measured raw before, always did the subtract an ounce routine, but I decided to check and now I am glad I did.

Question is...what do you guys all do (measure cooked or uncooked) and why the heck would they say its the same thing (6oz raw/subtract an ounce cooked)????
