I was wondering if I should be eating Original Meatless Boca Burgers as part of my clean diet or if I should just stick with chicken!

What I heard....
What I heard is that boca burgers are not really good for you. Yes, they have a bunch of fillers in them. And which boca burgers do you mean? The veggie burgers? Black bean? Soy based? Or wheat gluten based? Well, since they are so processed, it is difficult to stay lean (even though they are lower in calories than a chicken breast) if you eat them.
Of course, I am not an expert, but when I was in college, we had all you can eat buffet every day. And at night, tons of burgers. I wanted to eat more healthy, so I ended up eating these burgers, and to be honest, I felt just as bloated as when I would eat regular burgers, but less filled. In my opinion, they are garbage. Maybe better than 30% fat burgers, but a 9% fat burger would be healthier in my opinion. And chicken breast, way more.
Lastly, I think that they are mainly for people who want to feel good about themselves... people who don't want to eat meat. If you REALLY want to have veggie burgers, make them yourself. They will have a lot more nutrition, fewer fillers, contain more water, and of course, fill you up a lot more with fewer calories. Don't bother with frozen vegetarian food.

I buy these in bulk from Sams Club. I think I get like 20 large burgers for $9.99.
100 calories, 18g of protein. I eat maybe 1/day because they are a quick food to eat between school and work. I would rather eat chicken but that takes longer to fry up, etc.My Workout Log (NEW): http://forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=136142601
