 Calories In Chicken, Duck & Goose

Written by Diet Bites

When dieting, you need to ensure that you take in good sources of protein to prevent loss of muscle mass. Chicken makes a far better choice than red meat because it is lower in fat and cholesterol.  

You'll achieve maximum nutrition benefits by draining your chicken, by cooking it thoroughly, by storing properly, and by avoiding frying and adding additional high-calorie/high fat sauces.  Be sure to add rich sources of fiber to your diet to help boost your fight against cancer.

The following nutritional data is based on three ounces of roasted meat unless otherwise noted.
