    Simple meal: minimal carbs with decent protein


    This is great for any meal of the day. I usually eat something based around this meal for either dinner or breakfast, as I work out of the house during the day. This is a great and SIMPLE meal no matter what your goal is: cutting or bulking. Simply adjust the ratios of food and there you have it.

    1 - 8oz Piece of Perdue Frozen Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
    Calories - 200 / Fat Calories - 20
    Total Fat - 2g
    Saturated Fat - 0g
    Polyunsaturated Fat - ??g
    Monounsaturated Fat - ??g
    Cholesterol - 120mg
    Sodium - 500mg
    Total Carbohydrates - 0g
    Fiber - 0g
    Sugar - 0g
    Protein - 44g

    3 Whole Egg-land's Best Grade A Eggs - Large (now with 100mg of Omega 3)
    Calories - 210 / Fat Calories - 105
    Total Fat - 12g
    Saturated Fat - 3g
    Polyunsaturated Fat - ??g
    Monounsaturated Fat - ??g
    Cholesterol - 525mg
    Sodium - 195mg
    Total Carbohydrates - 0g
    Fiber - 0g
    Sugar - 0g
    Protein - 18g

    2 Pieces of Arnold Whole Grain 12 Grain Bread
    Calories - 220 / Fat Calories - 40
    Total Fat - 4g
    Saturated Fat - 0g
    Trans Fat - 0g
    Polyunsaturated Fat - 2g
    Monounsaturated Fat - 0g
    Cholesterol - 0mg
    Sodium - 400mg
    Total Carbohydrates - 41g
    Fiber - 6g
    Sugar - 6g
    Protein - 8g



    Totals:
    Calories - 630 / Fat Calories - 165
    Total Fat - 18g
    Saturated Fat - 3g
    Trans Fat - 0g
    Polyunsaturated Fat - ~2g
    Monounsaturated Fat - ~13g
    Cholesterol - 645mg
    Sodium - 1095mg
    Total Carbohydrates - 41g
    Fiber - 6g
    Sugar - 6g
    Protein - 70g

    From this meal, even at 18g of fat, you are still only getting 3g's of saturated fat, with the rest being poly and monounsaturated (good fats). Cholesterol content; although may be high; is because of the eggs, which is currently viewed as "good" (although they flip-flop on it every other year it seems). Cholesterol is the building blocks of hormones such as testosterone! Sodium may be high, but RDI is at 2,400mg, so it's about 50% of that. Not too big of a deal, considering that's with a 2000 calorie diet...


    Simple yet efficient dish, enjoy with a little texas pete too

    to much protein in one sitting for me. Stick the chicken on the bread and slap some low fat mozzarella, for an extra 8 grams of protein, some romaine lettuce,and/or other veggies of your choice, and some some spicy brown deli mustard and you'll have yourself a tasty meal

    Like I said, you can adjust to your liking. For 235, that is certainly not too much protein for me.

    Nice meal. I'm a low carber so I would add some enova oil for poly fats and get rid of the bread.

    I dont think its too much protein either.

    If you get rid of the bread there should be 0 carbs in that baby. Have at it!
