i was on fit day and it said that 8 oz of chicken has almost 600 calories and over 30 g of fat. i thogught chicken was a lean meat, but i guess not, but my question is this: is fitday right?

Skin or no skin? Bone or no bone? Deep fried? Boiled? Baked? BBQed?

Looks a little high... Deep fried McDonald's chicken strips in batter are only 640 cals for 8 oz.

Chicken, boneless, NS as to part, roasted, light or dark meat, skin not eaten

8 oz cooked

422 16 0 64

That's what I found. That's the problem with fitday... it's hard to pin down exactly what you're eating.
