Hi, Walt. The reason we often use volume measurements is because most of our clubmembers prefer them over weighing foods. For you and others who prefer weights, the measurements are available here:

I think TrimDownClub would do a great service to their members if they would provide a list of Vegetable Serving Sizes in units of oz. or grams instead of cups. Cups is an unacceptably ambiguous term because it depends greatly on how big the pieces are and how tightly you pack them.

I see that other people have this same problem.

Come on TrimDownClub, get with the program!!

Hi, Bernadette. 1 cup is 240 ml or 8 fluid ounces in volume.

A lot of the recipes are in cups – how big is a cup? Is there a way to get an exact measurement?

Thank you. Don’t know why they can’t say that in the first place. My cup may be smaller than yours or visa versa. I prefer working from exact metric quanties.

Hi Carol~
Here is a link I believe you will find very useful.

At their homepage — click on “Cooking” . . .
Then click on: Weight to Volume Cooking Conversions . . .

Then impute the required information.

It’s important that you remember: There will be a ‘major’ difference in grams if you are weighing salt v/s flour — because of the density of the salt v/s the flour.

Example: 1 cup of Flour (US AP flour) = 125 grams
Example: 1 cup of Salt, table = 292 grams

The difference is in the ‘density’ of the two substances, salt being a lot more ‘dense’ than flour.

I hope this has been helpful to you. 😛

PS Also, Carol . . . if you use the arrow at the top of this forum, it will allow you to peruse through lots of subjects that may be on your mind.
