I wanted to know if im weighing my food correctly. I weigh a chicken breast and it weighs 138 grams is that the total amount of protein that is going in my body? I dont think thats right. Its a digital scale by the way.

no thats not right, 138 grams of chicken boob is 42-43 grams of protein, and about 4 grams of fat

equation? Just look at the nutrition info on the back of the package and estimate. Also, remember that the info on th eback of meats is usually for raw, and not cooked. They are lighter cooked.

or go to the USDA website and DL there database, then you have it in grams,oz, cups, w/e you need

yeah... cook 'em up and then weigh them. if you can switch between ounces and grams then 7 ounces cooked is 58g protein and 5 grams of fat according to my knowledgem, I could be wrong tho.
