OOPS!!! I thought it would be uncooked. My SWAMI report says I can have 2 [1/4] C. of grain/carb per day. So 1/4 C would mean 1/4 cooked oatmeal, rice, millet, etc. Hardly worth the effort to cook and  eat them.

make batches of the stuff.....
add servings to your meals.......

I can feed my whole family, with a cup of uncooked beans!!!!
same with uncooked rice.......it multiplies once cooked, no?
use common sense when applying the guidelines

ooops I have been cooking 1/3 cup uncooked oats for breakfast, think I had better stick to my omletes instead. This will mean no grains in my diet until I can have basmati rice back.

Such a small amount of cooked grain/carb doesn't sound right.

i had been using the measurements for dry grain until i was making a breakfast and lunch recipe for my hubby who is a Teacher. He is allowed 3-5 servings of grain a day so i figured 1 serving for breakfast, 1 for lunch times 5 days (1 cup/day)  is 5 Cups of dry grain! i can't afford that! that is when i started to question it. it has to be cooked.

I resurrected this thread because I was uncertain.  Cooked seems probably right.  Because mine says I get (4) portions daily of 1/2 cup grains.  Or 1 muffin or two slices of bread as a portion.  

It seems kind of contradictory though.  Two slices of bread for a portion would mean 8 slices.  That's a lot of bread.  Or 4 muffins per day.  Huh.  That I could see I guess.  The problem with the grains, is that they all yield a little different size from their dry counterpart.  Like when I eat oatmeal, I'll eat much more "dry" than rice.  I'll eat almost a cup, more than 3/4's at least, of dry oatmeal. But 1 cup of oatmeal seems about like 2 cups. Rice that takes up the same amount in my bowl is more like 1/2 cup cooked.  If you cook 1 cup of rice, it yields about 3 cups because it fluffs up.  

So anyways, I don't really know if any of that actually makes a difference.  Let's see.  A 1/4 cup of long grain brown is 150 calories.  A 1/2 cup of oatmeal is 190.  If I eat 1/2 cup of uncooked long grain brown, it's 300 calories.  So it's 110 calories more than the dry oatmeal of the  same amount.  But lets see, if I'm eating a cup and a half of rice, that's about the same amount of calories as eating 3/4-7/8 cup dry of oatmeal.  That's 285-350 calories, so yeah, it all seems to work out pretty closely.

There's a thread about this somewhere last autumn when Balletomane did a phone consult with Dr. Nash and she asked her this question.
I just can't find it right now.

Quoted from balletomane
Recently I had a phone consultation with Dr. Nash. In a follow-up email to clarify certain details of my new diet plan, I asked Dr. Nash about the measurements. Here is her explanation:

So here we have the final verdict! That means I can have a lot more grains that I had allowed myself, but I need to up the veggies and meat portions coz they shrink after cooking
