    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 324 = two stone lost since August
    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.
    Stack x

    Check out my ramblings.

    OUCH! That is 270 calories (Tesco sunflower oil 2 tbsp). SOOooo not worth it!
