    Protein Amount


    This might be a dumb question too most, but here goes. Say for instance, a bag of chicken beast list 4oz raw = 23grs of protein. When you cook the chicken and weigh it, it measures 2 1/2oz. Do you still get 23grs of protein?

    You only lose 1 oz after cooking....Also usually the package will have the cooked amount and the raw amount....So 4oz raw=3 oz cooked.

    Thanx for the quick reply. Trying to narrow down my diet so that I get 50gms of protein per meal 5 - 6 times per day. I was eating 10 - 12oz chicken breast (measured raw), but when I did, it would sit there and cause me to fill bloated all day long. I figured I was taking in too much protein per meal. Lately, I've been eating 8oz chicken breast and just want to know if I was getting atleast 50grm.

    Just drink a protein drink with your meal, that way you don't have to eat so much meat at one time. You can have a smaller portion of meat that way. I don't count protein drinks as meals, instead I have them as a drink with a meal.
