A package of large chicken thighs

$6

after skinning, macros:

calories :1451
protein :180 grams
fat : 76 grams
carbs :0


so, a 180lb person could eat a package a day, meet his daily requirement of 180gp, almost his daily requirement of fat (if fats are at .5 bodyweight then only 14 grams away) and 0 carbs. that way you can add in carbs around lifting( or whenever) and eat pure carb foods like rice

Some would say that the fat in chicken thighs is too high (esp saturated fat), but I like them too. I alternate between boneless skinless thighs, and breasts.

If that was your only source of fat you would die.

Not that it's bad fat, but that it doesn't include enough Omega 3 to sustain human existence.

4.5 pounds of chicken is a lot for one day...I would quickly be put off of chicken for a long time.

4.5 lbs of chicken in one day is way too much, you need to keep it new and fresh.

It may be a lot.. but I'd take it over 4.5 lbs of tuna day.

Personal preference man. I agree, you SHOULD change it up, but you don't NEED to.

you should change it up because you need the variance in vits and minerals that different lean proteins provide you. plus chicken thighs are no where near the "perfect food" IMO its fat profile contains too much saturated fat to be eating 4.5 lbs. a day.

4.5 Lbs of chicken?? Wow, that's a lot of chicken...I had some chicken stir fry tonight and it was very tasty!! But if I ate 4 and a half pounds of chicken every day, I'd get sick of it real fast...

Chicken THIGHS.. it's not 4.5lbs of chicken unless you eat the bone too.

The actual weight of the meat you eat will be significantly less.

Well of course, who doesn't eat the bones??? ;)

Are you serious? I mean yes..you would die eventually but not the way you mean.

Survivorman says if you have rabbit available that you should eat the bones, as that's where rabbits carry the majority of protein.

Lol, survivorman rules!! I watched him survive in the jungles of Costa Rica last night. Guess what he had for dinner?? A small lizard!! He cooked it over the fire and ate everything except for it's head...Now that's what I call a wholesome nutricious meal loaded with good hearty protein!!

He didn't eat the head? What about all the luscious Omega-3 EFAs found in the brain???

the package is 4.5 lbs. take off the skin and excess fat and bones and it is probably 3lbs.

I would rather eat 3lbs of chicken everyday that 3 protein shakes (eww)

The fat from meat, while not nescesarrily bad for you, is definetley not what you would consider a "healthy" or "essential" fat.

You will die...you may very well make it to 100. But, yes..you will die.

I do chicken thighs for lunch every day. I crock pot them with carrots, bell pepper, onions etc. You'd be surprised how much of the fat is left in the pot after cooking. I also buy the skinless, boneless six packs which have considerably less fat to begin with. Since everything is sold by weight, why buy what you don't use?

If you stopped eating efa's you would die within about ~6 months.

Without Efa's your nerve cells would stop replicating because your body can't manufacture myelin.

Eventually your body would not be able to *signal* your heart to beat and your lungs to billow.

There are 38 essential nutrients.

Essential means you will die without them. Any of them.

Baloney.References please...you could last alot longer than 6 months on nothing but chicken thighs,water and maybe something to help with poopy time. Not optimally healthy of course. Think of people who ate even worse. Concentration camp,POW's.

JimR:

Do you know what the E in EFA stands for?

Do you know what it means physiologically?

Sorry I don't have a link, but I don't think it would be easy to get volunteers into a clinic for the "How long will it take for you to die from lack of EFA's study".

Not to mention the conducting of such a study would likely be considered homicide.

BTW, victims of concentration camps were used to make munitions, etc.

They were given EFA's to be kept alive. Bread even has trace amounts. Chicken does not.

The ones they wanted to die they microwaved.

How is he wrong that a total lack of EFA consumption would result in eventual death?

ESSENTIAL fatty acids.

I.e. you can't get them from anywhere else, apart from in your diet. Your body can only make some things. You can't synthesise vitamin C and you can't even store it terribly well... that's why you get scurvy if you eat no Vit C for only a few months.
