Meat, fish, poultry have lots of protein; protein satisfies longer.
But, note (click on images above):
- 120 cal, 26 g protein in 4 oz (precooked) boneless skinless chicken breast.
- 280 cal, 14 g protein in 3.4 oz Chicken McNuggets
The plain chicken breast (seasoned with basil and garlic; a teaspoon of olive oil would add 35 cal) has MORE protein and FAR fewer calories and fat grams.
So, I recommend more protein, and less fat and sugar. A diet that is has chicken, but then adds all the sugar/fat/salt is not beneficial. Processed foods don’t get it!
(Having said that, even raw chicken has often been injected with salt water – read labels, especially if you have high blood pressure).
