    How do you measure rice?

    I love rice, but measuring rice is a pain in the ass. I finally figured out the macros for my rice 1 cup cooked. My question is, how do I measure 1 Cup!? Do I use those big ass liquid measuring cups, or do I just use a cup like a regular tea drinking cup to measure? Please someone help? Does anyone know how many grams are in 1 cup?

    Just buy a dry measuring cup, like a buck at walmart.

    Figure out the macros for the weight not by cups. Also make sure its for cooked weight as you will most likely make large batches of rice. Get a scale if you dont have one. good luck

    I can't. I searched everywhere. I found out the macros for 1/4 cup of dry and 1 cup cooked. But I don't know the grams from 1 cup cooked or else I wouldn't be posting it. i do have a scale.

    I would probably do it the way I do with pasta (warning slightly math heavy). Most of the time they list weight its by dry measure (aka with pasta 56g dry). I weigh the pasta dry (usually cook the whole bag) and divide by the serving size. For example, one bag of pasta weighed 455g, which came up to 8.125 total servings (based on 56g per), which was in line with the "around 8" listed servings on the back. I then cooked the pasta, drained, then weighed the whole batch, which came to about 1190g. I divide that by the 8.125 to find out that the listed portion on the back was about 146g of cooked pasta (steam/water loss alters it slightly).

    Its easier than it sounds though I can understand people thinking its a bit too crazy. I'm not even that strict about weighing, I just find it easy to enough to do to control my pasta portions. Rice should work the same.

    Uhh... measure it uncooked... much easier? Look online or at the back of the packaging.

    And you don't use an actual cup... you use a measuring cup.

    With the Tar option it doesn't sound that difficult at all. You just gave me an idea to cook some pasta and chicken as my next meal for 3-4 days. I cook in bulk too because I don't have access to a kitchen easily.

    I would use a cup vs. lg liquid measure cup, would be slightly more accurate. Scales are also great of course. There is a new App, "bodybuilding food calculator" that will allow to measure rice cooked or uncooked based on cups or food weight into grams of carbs. All of the math is taken care of for yoU!

    Buy a food scale and measure the rice raw. Usually 1/4 cup raw = 3/4 cup cooked
