Silly question but in the LR4YT book it says a serving of rice is 1 cup dry.  Right?  Well, if it is cooked isn't it much more than that?  I've been measuring cooked rice 1 cup...am I messing that up?  1 cup dry seems like a lot of cooked rice no?

Beans are listed the say way (dry).  There's been a discussion about beans before and I seem to remember the conclusion being that it was supposed to be 1 cup cooked, not dry.

Yeah...sort of thought that might be the case.  Doh.  Was hoping for once I would be a little eater. Nope, gotta still watch my intake.  Sigh.  That's what happens when your body is good Easter European stock and built to carry baskets of produce to market.

That much rice would last me for at least 4 meals.

The quantities/portion sizes in the books are merely  guide lines that each person must adapt to suit their particular needs. Your body should tell you how much is enough of everything.
