Will I become fat if I have chicken?
Hello, I am a vegetarian. But now I am thinking of shifting my preferences to nonveg food. Before that I want to be sure about will I become fat if I have chicken? I have this confusion but no one was able to clear my confusion. Please comment on this ASAP.
@kanupriya Meat is primarily composed of two basic nutrients- protein and fat. The good news is that meat is high in protein. The even better news is that some meat sources are loaded with fats that are good for your heart. The not so good news is that some meats do contain artery clogging saturated fat. Protein is the basic ingredient used to maintain and grow muscle in your body. Compared to fat, muscle uses up more energy to maintain itself. That means, the more muscle you have, the higher your metabolic rate. The higher your metabolic rate, the more calories you burn, even while you sleep! Lean meat like grilled chicken breast (skinless) is a great protein source. While all meat contains protein, not all meats are the same when its comes to their nutritional value. On to the fat in meat … the leanest meat source is skinless chicken breast, with almost negligible fat. Have it grilled in olive oil. Grilled tandoori kebabs with chicken are good sources of lean meat (skip the butter rub). Avoid curried and deep fried meat items as they’re potentially loaded with oil and fat.
