this is probably a really basic question... but why is chicken such a preferred option for body builders?
im doing the whole weight loss thing, im down about 33 pounds so far (thats total, have gained some muscle as well).
ive been eating steak for dinner every night. am i going to see much difference if i start eating chicken instead? from what ive seen, 200grams of steak has about 10grams of fat more than chicken - is that a big number?
also, does the protein in chicken get into your system quicker?
my diet as follows:
7am - bran & skim milk, Protein shake (with water)
10am - protein shake and a weight watchers fruit bar
12.30 - 200 grams chicken breast and half a cup of rice
3pm - protein shake and a weight watchers fruit bar
7.30pm 200 grams steak, half a cup of rice and 2-3 cups of veges
9pm - protein shake (made with 100ml skim milk, 1/2 cup frozen berries & water).
my other question - i train from 6:20 - 7:20pm. should i be doing a protein shake just before working out? im eating dinner straight after - is that enough?
