It's from this site actually. Quinoa, fava bean, chard burgers. You are right. Probably not so crucial to be exact!!

Stems included:
Really large chard, 4 leaves = 1 lb.
Medium chard, 6 to 12 leaves = 1 lb.
Small chard, 12 or more leaves = 1 lb.

I would probably say the stems (if we are taking out the part in the center of the green as well) takes about 3/4 of the total weight.
