    Breasts VS Thighs

    Ok so I cut as many corners when to saving loot on my groceries I usually blow 70bucks a week on myself not counting the kids and wife . Chicken thighs are so much cheaper then breasts I think they have more flavor also. I how ever have no Idea if they are a good substitute for breasts and considering chicken is a everyday twice a day part of my diet I figured I better ask

    thanks for the help

    FYI I buy both breasts and thighs boneless skinless
    Enjoy Your Ride!

    Not too much of adifference, just about 5 more grams of fat & about 40 calories more than chicken breast.. and much tastier because of the higher fat... I buy chicken thights all the time.. and what most people get even more surprised to know is that leaving the skin on the chicken breast or thigh only adds around 50 calories and like 5 grams of additional fat.

    On chicken, i like the breast better, less fat and shit. Also more versatile on thr ways you can cook it. Now if ur talking turkey... I take the tight any time. Not a big fan of chicken either. Many years ago when i wHen i went to see my doc for pubertal gyno, the dumbass told me it was the estrogen injected in the chicken thet was giving me gyno, and sent me on my way.

    I don't know the exact numbers but I do know the dark meat is colored differently because it has more blood vessels running through it than the breast... some extra fat etc. In the nutrition courses I took in college I was told that the actual differences in calories & fat content are not massive and it's mostly a matter of which you prefer... although when discussing this you are not typically discussing the content and nutrition as to fit a "bodybuilders diet" so to speak.

    hmm where i am they cost the same per lb... I buy both so I can do a low fat chicken breast meal with complex carbs for lunch then switch to a higher fat content meal of chicken thighs with veggies for dinner..

    Very similar approach here, Mate. Buy 'em both when they go on sale.

    From what I know its two different sources of fat. Natural Saturated versus whatever else it is. I have to change from breast to thigh when I went though PCT - 3j diet

    Re: Breasts VS Thighs

    I honestly switch back and forth. I'm not a fan of breasts for whatever reason, but I recognize that it IS a bit healthier so I try to use boobs for at least 2 meals, thighs for 1, then fish and beef for the other two (breakfast is eggs).

    I'm an ass man myself.


    Ohhhhhhhhh were talking about chicken. I like thighs better but eat more breasts. I have to cut the breasts in 2-3 pieces before I grill it otherwise it's just too dry. Good info on the calorie and fat difference though I didn't know it was that slight of a difference. Now I won't feel like a fat ass when I eat thighs.
