Weigh food raw or cooked?

I did a search on this but nothing relevant came up. When weighing beef or chicken for example should I use the raw weight or cooked weight. Six ounces of 85/15 beef raw usually comes out to 4 3/4-5 ounces cooked. Same with chicken, obviously moisture and some fat is what's being lost. I've also google'd related searches with no concrete answers. Thanks for everyone's help in advance!

Re: Weigh food raw or cooked?

The only reason I've ever worried about food weight is for protein content in meat and I've just gone with the raw weight. I figure it's pretty much just water and fat lost in the cooking and mostly just water.

Re: Weigh food raw or cooked?

I do cooked weight as the more you mess with raw meat the more chance for contamination. I would rather not risk putting raw meat on my food scale, especially chicken.
