Caloric difference?

Is there a caloric difference between a lean cut of beef and a piece of chicken, both the exact same size (say 8 oz each) and cooked the same way (say grilled)? I know there's a difference in cholesterol and such, I'm asking about strictly a caloric difference.

  • Sorry about the previous post, the editing went wrong
    I sent you the information from the Apex Fitness website associated with the Bigges Loser Bodybugg system.
    You have the quantity of meat (4 oz) what it is, then the first item are proteins, then Carbs, then grams of fat for 4 oz and finally the number of calories.

    Lean steak has 162 cal where chicken breast has 124. both are raw, so cooking method has no impact on those numbers.

    Hope this helps.
