    Calories in a whole chicken!?

    How many calories are in a whole roasted chicken, with the skin and without?

    I cant seem to find it out on google.

    This is from tescos or asda in the packet.
    To be nobody but yourself in a world which is doing its best day and night to make you like everybody else means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight and never stop fighting.

    Well it depends on the size of the chicken. Usually about 600--800 calories without skin and 1200-1400 with skin.

    c105 - I used to work at Costco and would eat a whole chicken on my break. I would hear people whispering about it in the background and then there'a always that dumbass that has to be like "So, you must really like chicken."
    Lost over 100 pounds. Not too bad.

    I heard the skin is just saturated fat, i could be wrong.

    The skin is a mixture of saturated fats and other fats.

    I eat the skin because I'm on keto but yes fat grams have almost double the calories of protein grams as far as it adding that many calories.

    880 Calories per pound

    The information for 4 ounces is as follows:
    Calories 220
    Total fat 16g
    Sat fat 4.5g
    Cheolesterol 80mg
    Sodium 170 mg
    Total Carbs 0
    Dietary Fiber 0 g
    Sugars 0 g
    Protein 19 g
    Calcium 0 mg

    16 ounces is a pound, so multiplying the above numbers by 4 yields 880 caloires in a pound.

    I'm giving this thread a ressurection to see if anyone has more info on the skin vs nonskin issue.

    Also just cause it's a badass thread.

    I'm in Palestine right now and the only decent protein meal I can get is roasted chickens. I've been combining that with canned corn and canned beans to make up the vast majority of my daily calorie intake. Everything else in this country tastes horrible. They try to immitate American food at some of the tourist places, but it's not the same at all and it costs an arm and a leg.

    Owcad?

    I'm a costco chicken eater and I do between .5 and 1 whole chicken a day. I would love it if someone had more of an accurate number. I think i might be able to figure it out basing off of other nutrition labels, but it wont be as accurate.

    My estimates for a 2lb chicken come out to roughly 1600 with skin and 1100-1200 without.

    Indeed. This was one of the first few hits that came up when googling this question.

    So it appears that in terms of cost, a whole chicken without skin is the way to go. But for calories per gram, chicken breasts are a better option?

    I just ate a whole jerk chicken with lots of fries. Also googled it and this thread came up.
    6 years on and still going strong.lol

    For what it's worth, calorie websites tell me it's anything between 1400-1800 depending on chicken size as well as sauces etc.

    I've scoured the internet & this site for a definitive answer to this question and have been unable to find one.

    I realize chickens come in different sizes, but I just want a ballpark figure for a whole roasted chicken, with and without skin. Not by the oz or by the cup chopped, the whole damn thing.

    I've heard anywhere from 1000-3000 calories, and up to 140 grams of protein.

    Anyone?

    remove chicken skin

    weigh whole (skinned) chicken, write down results

    weigh chicken skin, write down results

    eat chicken meat + skin (if you please)

    weigh chicken bones, write down results

    subtract weight of chicken bones from weight of whole (skinned) chicken

    look up how many calories are in X amount of roasted chicken, use information to figure out how many calories were in in your whole (skinned) chicken, minus the bones...this is how many calories are in a whole roasted chicken without the skin.

    look up how many calories are in X amount of chicken skin, use information to figure out how many calories were in the removed amount of skin. add to results above...this is how many calories are in a whole roasted chicken with the skin.

    next time you can leave the skin on and have a decent estimate.

    Why would you weigh the bones? Just weigh the meat and add a bit of calories

    It's hard to say.. You would have to weight each part of the chicken separately, as the breast has less fat than the thigh or wing or drumstick. Then find an online database searching for each individual part of the chicken, I.e. "Chicken breast with skin, grilled/rotisserie/broiled.", "Chicken thigh with skin, grilled/rotisserie/broiled", etc.. This is assuming that there were no additives to the chicken for flavor (lemon, sauces, marinades, w/e).

    Do you even track?

    Or weigh it with the bones, then eat it and weigh the bones afterwards to subtract them from the original number (much less work as I like to gnaw on chicken straight off the bone)... Math ftw?

    EDIT: Nvm, just read your previous post..

    Although, in your previous post you're not taking into account the different macros for each part of the chicken..
