The Nutrition of Chicken / Nutrition / Healthy Eating
Yes. Boiled chicken will help you lose weight in a sense that protein can be both satiating and also highly adverse to adipose tissue storage. So, a high protein diet combined with fats during periods of low activity and carbohydrates during periods of high activity and strain can be the best bet for a lot of people.
Well I am not sure, but even if it were the most healthy thing in the world, I am not sure I could do boiled chicken. I just need more flavor in my meat, and boiling it is never a good idea in this sense. It seems to suck all the flavor out of it, so I would have to drown it in sauce, which might be counter-productive. Thanks for sharing.
You can not say that chicken meat is helpful for losing weight. Yes, once you eat chicken breast with veggies and good carbs, yes, it can be part of a good diet that ultimately will help you lose weight, but the same thing you could get from fish meat, beef or even turkey meat. It depends of what other things do you eat and how much of them.
Well, yeah...of course that's true. NOTHING you eat may be directly helpful to losing weight since EVERYTHING you eat contains calories for the most part. However, if there were a type of food to eat that is more conducive to building muscle and less conducive to storing fat, then a lean protein source SUCH as boiled chicken breast could do just that for you. On the other hand, if you eat 5000 calories of chicken per day and your BMR is 2000 calories, you'll probably gain weight and/or be going to the bathroom a lot. You have to put these things into perspective...You can not say that chicken meat is helpful for losing weight.

That's true. Eating too much of anything would give you extra weight because whatever surplus is converted into fat. At one time, I thought eating more vegetables would help. Then I realized that I have seen many pictures of vegetarian monks who are fat. So, the simple rule for thumb for me, is just to consume less calories than I use. How do I know that? Well, my belt is a good indicator. If I have to pull it tighter to keep my trousers up, then I am heading in the right direction.
