That 1/4 cup measure is before cooking. I think it works out to more like 1/2 cup cooked. I saw in another thread someone showing 2 oz of pasta, but they seemed to have had the same cooked versus uncooked problem. It's not no food, but a portion is smaller than most of us is used to. Most food calculators include it raw or cooked, although that too can be tricky. I've noticed that they occassionally add fat to the cooked version of things I wouldn't add fat to.

This is why, while I count calories, I don't count them very carefully. It's nearly impossible. Unless you never combine your foods, you just have to estimate how much of which ingredients you had.
