Procedure for calculating batch-cooked protein amounts...

1. Weigh the entire protein, raw
2. Divide by 3.5 ounces or 100g (I use grams for everything) to calculate total number of servings you have
3. Cook in desired manner, let rest a bit
4. Weigh the entire protein, cooked
5. Divide the total cooked weight by the number of servings to determine how many ounces/grams cooked per portion
6. Portion out protein based on the result in #5

Sooooo...as an example..

A bunch of chicken
1. entire batch weighs 1000 grams when raw
2. 1000/100 = 10 portions
3. cook the entire batch
4. cooked weight = 800 grams
5. 800 grams / 10 portions = 80 grams per cooked portion
6. 80 grams of that cooked chicken is 1 portion.

Beth, I just discovered your blog ... I'm a little late I know, but the information is so helpful, even to a vet like me who is on R4!
