Cooked vs uncooked nutrients calculations

So I've been wondering, can I input raw foods as my intake instead of their cooked alternatives? For example, I might know that I eat 2 cups of rice in a day, but have no idea about its weight after it's done cooking. In that case, would adding 2 cups of uncooked rice be equivalent to adding whatever the proper amount of cooked rice is? Are there nutrient losses during cooking process?

    There are nutrient changes during cooking. Of course there are lots of other uncontrolled variables that prevent 100% accurate information from logging food as well and some people do choose to simply measure the uncooked ingredients (especially true in complex recipes).
