    theres 16 ounces in a pound right?

    and if i got .85lbs then i take 85% of 16 giving me 15 ounces. then if i ate 1/2 of the 15 ounces of salmon and 1/2 of the 15 ounces of flounder then i ate 50+53g of protein :eek3: if that's true that's awesom :bigthumb:

    85% of .85lbs is 11.56oz. 0.5x11.56=5.78oz

    WTF???

    this is not difficult math :rofl:

    first of all, .85lbs is .85 x 16 , which is 13.6oz, not 15. Then, you look up the nutritional data for salmon (or flounder) but lets just assume salmon. It has about 90g of protein per lb. So .85 x 90 = 76.5 g/ protein.

    Also, this is uncooked, you're going to lose some weight in cooking but let's not worry about that for now.

    Mine was wrong. I thought you were saying you were taking 85% of the .85lbs.

    No gym for home?

    don't take my word for it, take a calculator and type .85 x 16 and see what you get !
