    Default lean mince vs chicken breast

    Hello!
    I am cutting, do you think extra lean mince (5% fat) is a good substitute for chicken breast? I also do the basics: 6 meals a day, vegies/protein, 1000 calories below maintenece, EFAs etc.

    The reason is because last time I cooked chicken I got food poisoning so I am a bit paranoid now.

    Thank you!

    It's a little bit higher in fat, but apart from that, don't see what difference there would be.
    How will you cook it so it doesn't taste dry and boring?

    Isn't 1000 calories below maintenance a bit drastic?
    You cutting in a hurry?

    as long as the quality is good, Id use it. Try making mince rissoles and grilling them to get any extra fat out of them, one good thing with mince is its versatile and you can add a few spices for flavorings.
    First say to yourself what you would be;
    and then do what you have to do.

    Fat is not bad, I repeat, FAT IS NOT BAD!

    Just get 10% mince and have some chicken too. Only eat 6 meals of it suits you, it is not important. 1000 cals is a little drastic but it is your choice.

    Also Carbs are not bad! Make sure you are getting enough to keep the energy levels up.

    You have importantly kept your protein up from what I have read but don't neglect the other macros. Workout your needs and post them up.

    You need to calculate your macros. I bet you could fit both the chicken and mince in it no problems.

    Well a 1000 calorie deficit is unnecessary and if that takes you down to 2000 calories a day, 6 x 333 calorie meals aint going to be filling or much fun

    Hello,
    thank you for the advises everyone. I have recovered from my food poisoning so i will give chicken another go, while incorporating lean mince.

    If you guys think 1000 calories is too large a deficit, whats the highest deficit do you suggest I do? Thank you!
