    Calories in Battered fish and Chips...

    So being from England I do dabble in the occasional portion of battered fish and chips (usually when I go to the football with a few friends).

    Generally on these days I adopt a IIFYM approach and try and fit the fish and chips into my calorie allowances. Now when i've done research online into the calorie content of an average size portion of fish and chips the results vary greatly. Many sites suggest that Fish and chips is actually one of the better forms of 'fast food' (protein in the fish ect.) and suggest that there's around 600 calories per portion, while others seem to suggest the calories could be double this.

    Can anyone shed some light on a realistic estimate of calories? I generally presume around 1000 but im not sure...

    Serving sizes vary. I tried nathans (connection to arthur treacher's), but their nutrition section was down for the moment. So, went to long john silver's info.

    1 piece of battered Alaskan pollock (92g): 260 calories
    Fries - platter portion (85g): 230 calories

    Course, I've never seen a plate of fish and chips with only 1 piece of fish. So, multiply as needed.

    no chance of estimating that one pal.

    Are you cutting or bulking? If youre cutting, I would allow for atleast 1k worth of cals and only around 40/50g Protein, if your bulking, dont worry about it too much if its only once a week or so.

    LMFAO. You got some pretty bro answers at the beginning there. As long as you aren't doing it several times a week, don't feel bad about it at all. Gotta enjoy life a little bit. And contrary to the apparent belief above, if it fits in your cals for the day, you won't magically put on fat (as I'm sure you already know). Novice got ya on the cals but I couldn't resist taking a job at the brotastic responses you were gettin.

    Hopefully I implied in the OP that im no bro haha... I understand that you can essentially eat anything as long as it falls within calories/macros... that was the fundamental reason for the thread so I could fit it into my macro's.

    Harry Ramsden's (famous fish and chip restaurant) suggest around 600 cals per serving and around 9.1g of fat per 100g

    He should be fine if he eats it before 7pm and takes in 10g Creatine afterwards.

    Are you aware of any evidence that trans fats in trace amounts is dangerous?

    You want to play lawyer now? Any amount in-vivo does cause damage, there can be no RDA set as this is a non-essential agent for the human body. The point here is you have better choices then consuming something with known detrimental effects. Why fish and chips over broiled fish and potatoes?

    I was just wondering if you were aware of any studies showing the dangerous affects of the consumption of trace amounts of trans fats. I'll take your reply as a "no."

    By all means, don't allow the lack of evidence to disrupt the fear mongering.

    it is known a touching a 400* hot plate is bad for you ... it causes n degree burns determined by time and pressure on the plate. Because there is no study on this, we should continue touching the hot plate without worry about the miniscule time our hands spend on the hot plate.
