Raw food vs Cooked food Calculation
I was under the assumption that 4oz of cooked chicken breast has approx 22-25g of protein in it.
Does this mean if I measure the chicken breast in raw form, that the amount of protein will be the same as in cooked form?

Raw I believe.

Thats why I wanted to see if I should measure 22-25g of protein using approx 4oz os "raw" chicken breast instead of cooked.

4oz raw is about 2.66oz (2 and 2/3oz) cooked. if you want 50 g protein either measure 8oz raw, then cook it. or measure 6.32oz (about 6 and 1/3oz) cooked. it will vary a little every time, but its about 50g

chicken looses its protein when its cooked?

I said to myself "damn man this seems like a hell of alot of chicken to be eating to get 50g of protein".
Now I know why. I was measuring 8oz cooked!
