Skinny On Chicken

Tips on Healthy Eating are Served

(NC)-Eating well isn't always easy let alone finding the time to cook. But if your secret ingredient is chicken, maintaining a healthy diet is much less work. Dishing up a high-protein, low-fat meal, chicken is one of the leanest meats on grocery store shelves.

In fact, a skinless chicken breast contains less than 1.5 grams of fat per 100 gram serving, according to Bryan Hughes, New Product Development Manager, Maple Lodge Farms. An essential ingredient to every meal, low-fat protein in chicken boosts your energy level by transporting oxygen and nutrients in your blood and cells while replacing and forming new tissue.

More Canadians are weighing in on the benefits of chicken than ever before. "Chicken consumption has almost doubled over the past 20 years in a country where over 75 per cent of households eat at least one chicken meal each week," says Hughes. "The trend in comfort foods has hit home and consumers are turning to chicken as essential to a well-balanced meal."

And it's simple to be creative when serving chicken, adds Hughes. From picnic salads to garden party entrees, Maple Lodge Farm's Premium Oven Roasted and Seasoned Chicken Breasts are quick suggestions to spice up any meal ... and you can save the leftovers for sandwiches the next day.

Both products are easy to find at your neighbourhood Sobey's, IGA or Knechtel's.

But when it comes to food safety, refrigerate cooked chicken promptly after serving to protect yourself from harmful bacteria. Spread out large quantities of leftovers in a shallow container to chill faster. But leave the dishes for later.

How to get from skinny legs to toned legs? I have the skinniest chicken legs and I really don't like it! How could I get my legs into shape?
I'm taking gym class at school right now, but nothing seems to be changing. Is there any exercises that will target my calves and my thighs to get my legs looking proportionate with my body?


Admin 01.05.2011. 23:16

squats, wall sits, duck walks, really anything that works your legs. but remember, you have to do all of these till you cant no more. if your just starting to get tired dont stop, push yourself

Girls what do you think about guys who wear skinny jeans? I personally think skinny jeans only look good on girls when they actually fill out the legs as opposed to skinny chicken legs. I'm a football player so I have rather buff legs and calves and have been told I have a nice ass. What do girls think about guys who wear skinny jeans?


Admin 28.10.2007. 02:08

How to get bigger calves and legs with dumbells? I am 15 5ft 5in and i weigh 135. I want to bulk up for football season but my little skinny chicken legs sometimes make me a bit shy. I have a pretty normal upper body but want to start taking protein. Will taking protein and working out my calves make them bigger or what should i do?


Admin 02.06.2010. 18:20

Its not hard. Just do lots of squats for your quads, romanian deadlifts for your hamstrings and glutes and single calf raises to put more work on your calves. You can do most of those with body weight only or by holding onto dumbells. If you can afford it, can also go to a gym and use some machines or free weights. For protein, the shakes arent bad the key ratio is at least 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight and to balance the total out throughout your day. Good clean diet will also help. I would also suggest a plyometric workout to help give you explosive power for football. If you arent sure about the workouts I suggested you can always wiki them for the proper form.
Good luck.

How do make my legs more full? I am 19, and 120 pounds. I work out so I'm thin and toned, especially in my stomach arms (not manly, but definitely fit) I have VERY skinny chicken legs (it runs in the family, my mom has them, grandma etc) I am wondering if there was anyway to bulk my legs up. I don't work out my legs other than running around a track and I am curious of there is something I can do that is more effective? Anyone got any ideas?

How do I lose muscle in my legs? I don't know why, but I have muscular legs, along with a little bit of fat on my thighs. How do I lose the muscle and fat from my thighs, so they'll look skinny? I don't want super skinny chicken legs, but I want skinny legs like Selena Gomez's. Any tips?
Remember: I want to lose the muscle too. But losing muscle is hard. Very hard. I also want to lose the fat.
Thank you!

Trust me, you do not want to lose muscle.
Muscle makes you look tone and lean, and it burns fat.
If you loose all of the muscle in your legs, you will actually end up looking fatter & all you will have is fat, then there will be no muscle to help burn off the fat.
Legs that have muscle definition are way hotter than boney chicken legs.
