When quantity reccomendations for CARBOHYDRATES state 1/2 cup of grains or cereals, does that mean dry or cooked?

I believe it means either way. You really don't have to be TOO strict with portions just use it as a guideline

I always assumed it meant dry. So half a cup of dry rice becomes one cup of cooked.

That depends on what it is.  Oatmeal, yeah, 1 cup dry equals 2 cups cooked.  Rice, especially white, fluffs up quite a bit more than that I believe.

I don't know if we ever have had anything definitive on this subject.  I believe Lola said it was "dry".

I consider a grain which I can eat dry, I take half a cup of it as a serving

on the other hand, a grain which needs to be cooked for me to ingest it, I take half a cup of it, once cooked for a serving


capish?

I think I do something similar to Lola.

But I look at the whole line:

"Portion Size: Grains, Cereals: half cup; Baked Goods: 1/2 muffin; 1 slice bread"

And when doing a cooked grain, I try to imagine what would be equivalent to eating a 1/2 a muffin or 1 slice of bread

I think if I tried to eat one half cup of an uncooked grain it would hurt my stomach so I'm not even gonna try it.

I eat a tiny bit more than a half cup of rice when I make it.  I know, it's a lot at once.  But I only eat grains at one time in the day, and it's my evening snack.  I will also eat almost a whole cup of oatmeal on the nights I don't do rice.  But it's a meal for me.  I only add nuts.  I don't eat this stuff with my dinner or lunch.  It's a meal all on it's own.  And it's so yummy!!!  But yeah, it's a lot.  I still don't know if I'm eating enough or not.  I probably should eat more in a days time, but I haven't figured out how to fit it in.  I do eat a rice cake once in a while on some days.  But not all the time.

Whatever state it's in (dry or cooked) when it's being consumed seems pretty reasonable...

Oh, you guys are just too good!  Don't you see I'm looking for any excuse to increase my carb consumption.  

BUT time and experience are teaching me that my arthritic finger hurts more when carbs are "over done".  I'm learning the hard way!

Oh, Lola, I have made the effort a few days last week to really concentrate on making and eating my full allotment of vegetables and love it!  It's so out of my habit, though and something I constantly have to push myself to do.  Bet you it will get easier with time.

A very popular line of thinking
