    not sure it's in the book - just wondered if there was a minimum amount of protein we should be eating in a day... I know it's ultimated at one end of the scale...but how little is too little :)...sorta thing...I know with some diets they stipulate macronutrient ratios...

    macronutrients being fat, carbs, protein...

    just wondered if there was any guidance for this a la dukan :D

    So 200g roast chicken would be about 50g protein...

    so around about 20g per 100g of chicken is protein... therefore I've had 40-50g today so far... need at least another 26g...

    Yeah a lot of secretaries are on holiday so those poor souls not on holiday are helping all and sundry!!

    That is a minimum though... best aim far higher.

    I've never had trouble reaching double that amount though...

    well dinner will be 3 stir fried chicken breasts...500g in total so 5 x 20g = 100g + what I've had already will be approx 150g double the minimum :)

    that's before I add a bit of egg custard and some yoghurt on my dinner :D

    Use my fitness pal too, used to use fitday but mfp has more english foods covered so less time entering stuff. Miss fitday showing piechart of carbs/fat/protein though.

    Just changing goals to hit the protein numbers, looks like I'm usually in range :D
