    Weighing and Measuring Foods

    Group,

    I buy chicken breasts in bulk form. Normally, I would cook the entire bag and eat one breast at each setting.

    Does anyone weigh meats, poultry, and fish? What about brown rice servings and green veggis?

    Thanks

    4oz Chicken = 120 Calories = 24g Protein thus..
    Most people eat 8oz a serving..

    I believe it is 4 oz cooked=24 grams protein. I made that mistake when i first started dieting and was way undereating.
