    Tracking macros - label confusion

    Wegmans. 95% lean 5% fat.

    I scan it into MyFitnessPal and it gives me the details for 16oz uncooked. I weigh it and it's 16oz uncooked. The issue is the back of the label says a serving is 4oz uncooked and it has 12 servings per a container. I'm thinking because it came in a pack of 3? Just seems weird to put that on individual label. 600 calories and 96g protein for a pack of lean ground beef seem right?

    Also, when do you season your meat in the skillet? Before or when it's pretty close to well done?

    If it shows the serving for 4oz and it weighs 16oz its 4x the label not 12x. I season before but I'm no top chef I can barley use a blender without catching my house on fire .

    I seal the meat, then add seasoning. Sealing is where you cook the meat on all sides, but not all the way through. Season and then cook it all the way through.

    Interesting so you brown all the sides. Season. Then break it up and cook it thru?
