View Full Version : Chicken Salads

I'm trying to cut and I was wondering if a nice chicken salad of

8 oz grilled chicken (50 grams of protein)
Salad in a Bag
Fat Free Italian (20 calories)
1/4 Cup Light Mozzarella Cheese (3.5 grams of fat, 8 grams of protein)

would be for guy cutting and still trying to get lots of protein.
Is the extra cheese a good idea to throw in there? I figure the extra 8 grams of protein can't hurt.

I'm 17, 5' 10.5", 185 lb.

I guess that depend on how much you like cheese :p

Personally, I'd stick with just the chicken, lettuce and fat-free dressing, sounds damn good to me :) Personally I enjoy chicken with lettuce and fat-free caesar dressing, no croutons, bacon or cheese.. I can eat more that way, and don't have to worry about my fat count nearly as much.

I'd rather just add more chicken :) But then again, I'm not much of a cheese eater, and I love chicken to begin with.

That reminds me. I have some croutons which aren't too bad for me. They actually add a few grams of protein. I don't like the bacon on the salad though. I'm sure that has some fat content which I don't need.

I like cheese so it's a good way to getting some calcium. I don't drink milk so I guess I need all the calcium I can get.

calcium supps twice a day=:thumbup:

take it from a growing teenage girl w/low bone density

easiest way to get a decent backup in case your diet isnt providing enough
