    How to calculate calories in deep fried foods?

    If you take something like fish or chicken that is in breadcrumbs or batter, and you deep-fry it, how on earth do you calculate the calories in the fat that has clung to the food after it is taken out of the fat?

    Minigoal 1 Get under 25 stone ~ HIT!

    Minigoal 2 Get into the 23 stone bracket ~ HIT!
    Minigoal 3 Reach 330lb = 10% of body weight lost
    Minigoal 4 Get into the 22 stone bracket
    Minigoal 5 Reach 299lb = in the 200s
    Minigoal 6 Get into the 21 stone bracket
    Minigoal 7 Reach 19 stone 13... so I am no longer in the "20 stone plus" range

    I would probably allocate 2 tablespoons of oils worth to the food if I was cooking it at home (if it was particularly greasy - maybe a little more).

    If it's a resturant menu, then those calories would already include the cooking method.

    Check out my ramblings.

    I'm just calorie counting. Nothing fancy. No rules other than don't go over your daily calorie limit.
