How do you guys measure rice? Before it's cooked or after? I never really knew the proper way of doing this.

Uncooked usually...why do you stress over these things though? You always look great.

Not really stressed over it, but I'm certainly confused, I saw a few videos recently of pros prepping meals, and they were using their measuring cup after the rice was cooked, so this made me confused, I always just thought pre cooked, but maybe I've been doing this wrong all this time..not sure.

I believe the published nutritional content its raw. Water content (weight) of it cooked can vary alot. If you are counting  calories you should do it raw. At least i did when i competed.

So pre cooked? That's what I thought...I mean if you measure out a cup of rice when cooked, it's not very much quantity (very little infact) but still not sure, it really shouldn't be this difficult to find the answer lol

Just use a digital scale for accuracy.  Weigh it uncooked.

Yes pre-cooked.

By the way, i used to put a spoon of olive oil to cook 400grams of rice, so its does get like bitumen. Is there a way of making it eatable without any oil at all?

Cook it in chicken broth instead of water
