Our expert says:
If we consider that a balanced diet for an average female should provide approx. 8400 kJ of energy of which 10-15% should come from protein (50 to 74 g/day), not more than 30% should come from healthy fats (68 g/day) and 55 to 60% should come from carbohydrates (272 g to about 300 g) and the average carb portion varies between 30g per slice of bread to 125 g per 1/2 cup of cooked starch, then this works out to about 6 servings a day. If you decide to have your carbohydrates in the form of wholewheat or low-GI bread then that is fine as you are eating it with healthy low fat foods. If you roast a chicken in such a way that the fat in the skin drips down and can be discarded and you then removed the skin, it should not make the meat particularly fatty. The fat will not actually seep into the protein of the breast.
