I am trying to decide a OZ amount.. I usually always ate a 6-8 oz breast per meal... now im thinking no.. There should be a set OZ @ so many gr of protein.

I want to pre prep my meals, cheken breast and veggies.. no more carbs for me..

I usually have about a .5-.75lbs per meal depending on what else I eat with it. So 8-12oz.

I hear ya on that one. Organization helps a lot when dieting. Also, if you are weighing this food make sure you account for frozen vs thawed weights.

You may want to first determine how much protein you'd like to intake for the day. If you aim for 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight, just take that number and divide by the number of meals you'll be eating. Do the calculation of grams of protein in chicken to ounce weight of the chicken and there you go.

I'm actually eating a pile of chicken wings at the moment :D

I tend to have two breasts per meal. I did even before I took up this hobby. Can we expensive though, at around 75p ($1.30) per breast.
