    how much does the chicken breast really weigh?

    Many of the nutrition books I have looked at lists 2-3 oz of chicken as having:

    90 calories
    20 grams of protein
    0 grams of carbs
    1 gram of fat.

    My question is this: Are these values for the COOKED weight or the RAW weight? Meat loses alot of water and shrinks quite a bit after being cooked...almost depresses me...lol. When should I be weighing the meat??????

    Thanks.

    So if a cooked chicken breast weighed 3 oz, what was its weight when it was raw? At school, I know all the chicken breasts are 3 oz. cooked...but I don't know the starting weight.

    I'm pretty sure a 200g piece of cooked chicken is ~60 or so calories

    I don't think the weight changes significantly when you cook it. Chicken doesn't tend to lose that much fat/water in the cooking process, from what i've seen.

    Don't worry about it

    Edit: on second thoughts....i guess it does lose a lot of water


    Man just weigh it before you cook it, and keep these figures in mind

    per 100g RAW CHICKEN:
    110kcals
    2.5g fat
    22.5g protein

    Capitalisation is important. See the sentence "I helped my Uncle Jack off a horse."

    Does anyone else tear their chicken breasts down the side where the strip of fat is and cut the outside of the two strips off?

    Yep.

    You usually get about 200-300g raw weight per half this way, or less if you are picky and chop off every little bit of chewy stuff

    Even more importantly, since an object weighs less at a high altitude than it does at sea level... WHERE should we be weighing the meat?

    And is a sherpa on the side of Mt Everest getting more chicken for his weight than the bloke on a low-lying Pacific atoll?

    It worries me a lot, that one...



    However, on a lighter note, I highly recommend "free-flow" chicken breasts... freeze them with each layer of chicken separated by 2 layers of plastic wrap - really easy to take and thaw, as and when you need them.

    Here's yesterday's little effort...

    When you guys say cooked, do you mean you boilded it in water(that wouldnt be sane), or is there no other word to say "healthly" fried on a pan with a little oil?

    And i think that 200g of chicken breast are about 200-240 calories. I count them as that anyways.

    well i usually boil them, or maybe use like, 1/8 of a teaspoon...lol...i try not to add any extra calories that are not in my meal plan. don't get me wrong tho, i do eat my good fats...mostly in the form of 4 tbs of nat PB before bed.

    anyways, aitaronz, that's some nasty lookin' chicken you got there..way to show your dedication! i do that when i am at home...but damn, when you're away at school, your options are limited to the caf. (no cooking allowed in dorms...)

    i'll just stick to weighing them after they are cooked for now, as there is no way to get raw chicken at school...haha.

    2-3 oz. cooked is prob 100 cals, 20-30 grams of protein....oh well.
