So I'm looking for the breasts I eat on Fitday, Perdue brand Boneless Skinless. I buy the 10lb bag at BJ's/Costco weekly. I think the bag says something like 120calories per 4oz. I weighed the breasts and frozen they are about 6oz each. The stuff in fitday seems to be a bit higher in the cal's compared to what is on the bag.

I'm trying to be consistent since I am PSMF'ing and want to be as accurate as possible with my macros.. Why the hell is everything different in Fitday?

Does it matter of I weight the breasts frozen or thawed?

add the chicken as a custom food per 4 oz serving

then weigh it out.. enter 6oz or whatever you consume and it will automatically adjust the nutrients

the pre-entered foods on fitday are pretty much worthless. just add what you eat from nutritional labels imo

yeah, if it's got a label I just add it in my Custom Food area

I have probably over 150 custom foods

I hardley ever use the search function.

I add everything I eat in the custom foods.
