3.5oz chicken breast = 31g prot?
Thats what it said in muscle and fitness magazine, but that doesn't sound right to me at all... Most people, including myself, eat about 6-8oz of chicken breast, that means there is around 70g of protein in 8oz chicken breast.. that doesn't seem right to me.

ya thats deff incorrect 6oz has around 40g of protein. Once again you must remember its a magazine, in other words its useless bull$hit.

well Muscle & Fitness is a pretty popular magazine with a lot of credibility to it, but I knew that wasn't right. How many kcals per 6-8oz piece of chicken?

ResultsItem Serving Size Fat Grams Calories
chicken, breast (w/o skin roasted) 1/2 breast 3 142
thats from the online calorie counter, in M&F it said 3.5oz = 170 cals, also not right at all. 6-80z piece of chicken breast = about 45 g of protein and 320ish cals.. correct?

3.5 oz (100 grams) of cooked, breast = 31 g of protein, 3.6 g of fatm with a total of 165 cals..
8 oz (227 grams) of cooked, breast = 70.4 g of protein, 8.1 g of fatm with a total of 375 cals..

It just depends on the brand and the leanness of the chicken breast. It could have more or less fat depending on a lot of things. I brand I buy supposedly has 41g of protein and 1g of fat per 5oz breast..... but who knows. Honestly just go with the numbers on your bag of chicken, they are usually a good ballpark figure

170 cals total devided by 4 cals for each gram of protein would be 42.5 grams of protein
and 320 cals devided by 4 would ended up at 80 grams of protein
I think this is right since each gram of protein would equal 4 cals

I just found this calorie calculator.
Chicken, breast (w/o skin roasted) 4oz breast, 3g fat, 142 cal
This means that with the 3g fat that 4oz chicken has 28.75g Pro
