Hey Just wondering if this is too much, I've been eating Chicken Legs for lunch lately, with skin bone and fat, I Munch on the ends of the bone and consume part of what looks like the spine as well. Normally there is none left but the cartilage and the middles of the bones. The chicken leg packs weigh around 650-700g most times. They are grain fed and have tons of fat on them. I love eating them both for lunch. But I do not get accurate results in the protein and fat ratio as they vary very greatly. What would be the true nutrition of a chicken leg (both legs) that weigh 500-800g? I don't want to consume too little protein not get protein poisoning.
P.S. 500-800g per pack of 2 legs nutrient data would be very appreciated. Thanks Plus does that include the bones as well? Thanks!
Nutrition Information for 1 lb (454g) of chicken leg, meat and skin, roasted:
Assuming you're not frying the chicken in butter or oil, I'd say that's a hefty but reasonable lunch. The polyunsaturated fat level is a tad high, but easily fits into the nutritional context of a day's eating.
Do you feel well after eating it? Are your health markers looking good? Are you in control of your weight? If you can say yes to those three, then don't worry about it.
