Ok....I have two books that I use to determine calories for items. These have restaurant lists in them as well. One of the things that I have been eating lately is KFC Chicken breasts. I have read where chicken breasts...besides protein....help regulate thyroid hormone production. Both books and the KFC website say that a Crispy Chicken breast has 460 calories. It also adds that the breasts are 5.7 ounces each. WELL....today I weighed my chicken breast from KFC. It weighed almost 10 ounces. This is almost DOUBLE the calories. It has me concerned about fast food in general. Sometimes I will grab a Big and Tasty from Mcdonalds and fit that in my calories.....510 with cheese. Or is it? I also read that frozen or packaged foods are often incorrect about the quantity by as much as 50%. I would recommend buying a scale to anyone counting calories. Not fun to find out that something that you think has 460 calories has more like 800 calories in it.
