    How do you guys measure macros from bacon? Is it all fat that comes off when itís on the pan? One option is to take that fat and count it in but itís a hassle.

    Why is it a hassle? A strip of bacon isn't insanely high calorie. It adds up with each strip so don't be an asshole with it and you should be fine.

    Thereís only nutritional values for uncooked bacon at least here in Finlando 😄 so i was wondering is it all fat that comes off. I just lost 18kg (39 lbs) and got to 9 % body fat and currently reverse-dieting week 1 so iím overthinking things. I solved the problem by measuring everything and cooking eggs with that bacon fat. Thanks!

    Well if you want to go the distance weigh it before, weight it after, calculate the percent change and math it from there.

    What about water loss though? I feel like a much more precise way would be to collect the bacon fat and weigh it. Otherwise you will underestimate the fat content of the prepared bacon by quite a bit and it could add up, depending on your daily bacon consumption.

    Then you should do it that way. Consistency is more important than precision.
