Just after an estimation, as i plan on upping my protein intake, so dunno if i should eat one per meal 5times a day with 3protein shakes, or if i should have 2portions of chicken breast with my rice each meal.

Quite a amount mate, I doubt it would do you any harm but you may not need that much just yet, so could save you on wallet. How tall and heavy are you?

I thought it was 35 to 45 grams per breast?

Of course that would depend on the size of the breast.

The pic shows chicken breast fillets, with the weight probably being around 100 grams.

Depending on the quality, the protein range is generally anything from 22 grams up to as much as 33 grams of protein per 100 grams of uncooked chicken. Tesco healthy living chicken fillets contain 33 grams of protein per 100 grams of chicken and is more expensive than their tesco value chicken fillets which contain around 23 grams of protein per 100 grams of chicken.

Sainburys chicken fillets contain 30 grams of protein per 100 grams of uncooked chicken.

There is no specific value, it just depends on the quality.

Remember there is protein in more unlikely foods as well eg. 100g of oats has about 11g of protein... This all adds up too!

It may be in the states hacks!:lol:

They are between 23g and 40g for a medium breast but apparently it matters if free range or battery was used due to the little raptors training regime---for real!:smartass:

I eat 3-4 of them a day, they weigh roughly 200g each before cooked, any one give me a guesstimate on the cooked protein value?

Buy scales, weigh it, check it on fitness pal. Double check it with the pack you bought. It all varies to be honest. Free range, caged, organic etc etc.

I don't weight anything, I just cook it and eat it.

I have a protein with every meal, makes things nice and simple.

Or, I will have protein and fat for a meal, like nice greasy ground beef.

Or, eggs and cheese, I never count anything.

I feel many people eat too much protein anyway.

I'm the same I just have a vauge conscious awareness I'm getting high protein and high cals in each meal and dont fuss about adding every little thing up. My main meal which I just had was 3 pieces of bergen bread, 5 eggs scrambled and a cut of gammon. I know eggs are about 5-7g each, the toast comes to about 18g, the meat I have no idea I'm just safe in the knowledge it was easilly over 60g of protein + a lot of cals...

P.s. I suppose I'm technically "bulking/getting fat" at the moment anyway so give even less worry to it

I am hungry, but its Friday and I am going to have some beer, I will eat some shelled peanuts with that.

Cut or bulk, at this late in the game it makes no difference to me anymore anyway.

Spent thousands on supplements, trained forever, but when I took steroids I got strong, and big:lol:
