I was on fitday plugging in foods.

Looking for a whole chicken I came across what I thought was right and wanted to make sure.

It says that a whole chicken with the skin, bone removed is somewhere around 2000 cals and 200g protein....

is this correct?

For dinner I have been buying a whole rotisserie chicken, and eating the whole thing....am I really getting this much from it?

skinless Chicken has almost the exact same amount of cholesterol per ounce as lean Beef, Pork, Duck, Catfish, dark meat Turkey, baked salmon...

This is because cholesterol is used to build the cell walls in animals. So most all animals have comparable amounts of cholesterol per ounce of muscle. ALL animal meat contains cholesterol. Some a little less, some a little more.

what meat would you have him eat?

To be clear, consuming 7 portions of chicken in one sitting is probably overkill, though.

High cholesterol is mostly a product of unfortunate genetics, not diet.

Also, Fat and cholesterol are not related.

Mostly because its a waste of protein, which tends to be expensive. Extra protein can be burned as energy or stored as fat. Then the body would be left without for the rest of the day, if only one protein meal was taken.

I agree on the protein bit, but I want to know what is so bad about meat specifically.

It was asserted that meat is unhealthy (deadly, even! lol) because of its high cholesterol content. I take the stance that this is untrue, and I would point out that we are, in fact, made up completely of meat. High cholesterol meat.

A diet high in cholesterol can raise your blood cholesterol levels levels, but mostly high cholesterol is due to bad genetics.

not eat meat?!?!?! what is this world coming to! chicken is for me a prime source of protein well prefer turkey and tuna, 1 whole chicken is a bit OTT but cut it up dude!
