Weighing pulses

In a bid to get healthy this year I've been looking at a lot of bean recipes.

However having been burnt before when trying to convert the weight of dried beans in recipe, I need guidance on how to exchange the weights of dried, soaked and tinned beans.

For example: If I had 100g of dried beans, what weight are they after they've been soaked, after they've been soaked and cooked and the equivalent as tinned beans? I know I could do this the long way round, by actually soaking and cooking, but I'd be interested if anyone had any rules of thumb.

Can any one help?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Sarah
