The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    depends 100% on the weight
    raw or cooked
    skin or no skin
    added oil or not, etc...

    chicken breasts are 1lb = 440 calories, 100g protein, 2-3g of fat(roughly)
    I used to cook 6-7lb chickens every week and they would provide me between 3-4 pounds of meat (once oil/skin/gizzards etc are removed)

    The nutritional information should be right on the chicken wrapper!
    I always liked the perdue ones that had that little heat gauge thinger that would pop outta them! otherwise I had a tendency to overcook my bird!

    Chickens dont come in cups?

    I only gave cup measurements cos thats what fitday measures most everything in. Pull all the meat off the chicken and see how many cups it fills. Then you will know what you have. You will only ever need to do this once and then you will know forever for that chicken type/brand.

    Hard to estimate a chicken breast size...they vary from 2lb chickens to 10 lb chickens. Noone wants to get into a "whos breasts are the biggest" competition. Thats just not cricket.

    I buy it from the butcher it doesn't come with a nutrional info.

    I grill/roast mine with no skin/without oil, only salt.

    Can you show me a picture of a 1 lb breast to see how big it is compared to mine.

    I'm not sure if chicken breasts get to be 1lb (for a single breast)...
    turkey breasts do, but chickens tend to be much smaller.

    3-4 breasts usually = 1lb

    you could always go to the supermarket and look at the nutritional info on one of the chickens there. Shouldn't be to far off.

    I just went to the Perdue website
    this is the nutritional info they have on whole chicken:
    http://www.perdue.com/athome/product...ctinfo/805.asp
    they have a serving size of 3oz
    white meat:
    170calories
    10g fat
    3g saturated
    21g protein

    dark meat:
    210 calories
    16g fat
    5g sat fat
    17g protein

    I just buy the 3 lb bags of breasts from Kroger. I don't like messing around with having to cook the damned thing forever.
