hi, i was wondering if anyone can help me figure out how much fats, carbs, and protein are in the following foods: average size chicken patty, 1/2 cup of french fries, and 1/2 cup applesauce. I tried fitday, but fitday is too specific to the extent that it really confuses me. thanx alot, dam school lunches, i never know what im gonna get so i cant plan ahead.

there is no way to tell with any accuracy.
I'd estimate the chicken patty alone (without bread)
would be
fat: 1-25g
carb: 1-50g
protein: 1-30g

apple sauce might be:
fat: 1-5g
carb: 10-60g
protein: 1-5g

French fries:
fag: 10-35g
carb: 5-25g
protein: 1-5g

guesstimating like this is pretty useless...if your going to track your diet then you have to be accurate. Being off by 200+ calories per day I'd consider a waste of time...

ur best bet is to bring ur own lunch, and take the guess work outta it.

not to mention french fries don't fit into any typa eating program since 99.9% of the time they are just loaded to the gills with bad fats...

I know fitday is pretty good for chicken.

Look up "Chicken, breast, with or without bone, broiled, skin not eaten"

As for applesauce and fries, go to the grocery store and take notes :)
