Diet Journal: Calories in Chicken Fat
Written by Diet Bites
Yellow Globs of....Globs
One would be hard-pressed to find a richer source of fat than from chicken. It's fully loaded - and in a bad way (which can equally transcend to 'a bad weigh').
It's easy to see why even small traces of fat - not only on chicken, but other meats as well, can really jack-up calories. And when they start to spill over the top of our daily dietary requirement, those globs have the potential to turn us into blobs.
Let's take a deeper gander at our nutrition fact chart for chicken fat posted below. Yes, we're talking about chicken in this article - but just take a look at all of those 'goose eggs' in the data chart.
No calcium, no iron, no potassium - virtually no nothing that relates to positive nutritional values. However, there are a lot of baddies in the mix - like saturated fat. One cup of the yellow stuff holds over 61 grams. The total fat gram count for one cup equals over 200.
But wait! Is anyone really going to ever sit down and indulge in a plate - or even a cup - or a Tablespoon of cooked chicken fat? Well, perhaps a Tablespoon in some cases as there are individuals who like to eat the skin of the roasted chicken and when doing such, they are getting at least that amount of fatty acid content per serving.
Sure, all that yellow stuff adds flavor to the bird as it roasts, boils, grills - or steams, but before we put it onto our plate, we'd be wise to remove it. By doing such, we can save over 100 calories per serving - and a whole lot of unhealthy lipids.
Look Ma! No Carbs!
Take note that there are zero carbohydrates contained in chicken fat - which is actually great news for those watching their intake of such. On many of these types of fad diets, the individual can guzzle down all they want of foods containing zero carbohydrates. This is just another reason why we're not a fad of carbohydrate-restricted weight loss plans.
