Turkey Breast... skinless vs deli style

Why is the size of the protien block different between deli-style and skinless turkey breast? 1.5oz to 1oz.

And deli style turkey breast is just like sandwich meat turkey right?

I assume becasue the deli style is often pumped full of sodium and water to make it more "palatable" for the average first world consumer.

Less protein/volume

Re: Turkey Breast... skinless vs deli style

Bumping this thread to see if anyone can confirm the above explanation. The 1.5 oz deli meat = 1 oz breast meat has always perplexed me.

Re: Turkey Breast... skinless vs deli style

Kannon, where did you get the 1.5oz of deli turkey = 1 block? I'm curious because I've been eating 1oz of deli style turkey as 1 block for the past few weeks. Thanks.

Re: Turkey Breast... skinless vs deli style

That reason for the difference is just as was stated by Craig. Most deli meat is made from the left over portions of the animal it contains lower levels of the micronutrients. This is the same reason that if you use ground beef or ground chicken you have to eat more to get the same amount of blocks. Hope this has helped.

Re: Turkey Breast... skinless vs deli style

I get why it is different. What I am looking for is the block chart where he got this info. Or is this just a known thing and I'm in the dark about it?

Re: Turkey Breast... skinless vs deli style

It is kind of a known thing. But, if you look at CFJ Issue 21 , under the meal plans, you can see that every meal that has deli meat is 1.5oz per block. This is one of the better sources you can use to answer most of your introductory questions to the zone.

Re: Turkey Breast... skinless vs deli style

I'm just starting out, but I've scoured through CFJ 21 and haven't seen anywhere that lists 1.5 oz is a block of deli meat. In fact, some of the planned meals list things like 3 oz deli meat for 3P. I'm not trying to tell anyone they're wrong because I'm new, just trying to find answers to make my body perform. Thanks.

Re: Turkey Breast... skinless vs deli style

If you note under that 3 block meal it is three ounces of deli meat and a ounce of cheese to make up the last block. Keep at it. Getting the diet down is the hardest part, but once you have it you will see your gains increase rapidly.
