Questionable Egg Nutrition

When looking at the calorie content of eggs on FitDay and Nutrition Data, they both say that a scrambled egg has ~100 more calories per egg than a raw egg. What’s up with this? Why, all things being equal, (not cooked with anything except a little cooking spray) would the calorie content of an egg change when it goes from raw to scrambled?

I think those sites assume 1tbsp of margarine being used with scrambled or fried eggs, omelets etc. it’s stupid.

Thats impossible. They must be taking into account a table spoon of oil or something when cooking them.

yes, they take into account oil used in cooking.
