    Personally I never have a whole tin in one sitting - it's a bit much. The protein count in them is quite high - so it almost counts like a protein choice with some carb mixed in, in those quantities. If I'm cooking I have about half a tin which is shared between myself and my partner. So quarter?
    If you are planning to have chickpeas, at least in the first week or two of having them introduced - stick to about a third of a tin. Calories aren't everything in the world, all the other things matter too! Protein count, fibre, carbohydrate (and sugars).

    Good luck! :)
