Ok
My friend asked that I cook a batch for him because he could not do it himself and needed it for some work reason or another.
Not something I make EVER (and prob never again) so I never asked NUT about eating it. She's gone for the day

Ingredients:
chicken breast
Spices
Flour
Oil

Has anyone eaten fried chicken ?

Its the flour that makes this bad. If you peel off the coating the chicken is great but we all know just how addicting that crispy fried skin is. be careful going down that road.

I have seen people make fried chicken with pork rind coating. Dunno if that is ok. I was never a big fried chicken fan before surgery so I never made it

Never again. I have accepted the fact that I just can't eat fried food. Fired food, pizza, Pasta, beer, etc., brought me the point of being dangerously obese in the first place. Not going back there!

Try almond or coconut flour. Few carbs and a lot better for you. Also fry in peanut oil. This is if you have to have it.

My wife and I split a two-piece meal from Popeyes a few months ago. I ate the chicken and drank the drink, she ate the red Beans and rice and the biscuit. dinner for two, $7!

Frying something in oil means it will be very high in fat and calories. I would avoid at all costs.

My NUT told us that plenty of the grease soaks into the meat and not to try and fool ourselves by peeling the breading off. No fried foods for me again. Ever.

Newer studies show fat is good. I am a medical transcriber for several different hospitals in different areas. Plenty recommend high Protein, high fat, low carb. Do searches for low fat myths and/or cholesterol. They've also found that eating cholesterol doesn't cause high cholesterol.

To reduce the carbs in fried chicken, you could use almond flour and maybe crushed Pork rinds.

I subscribe to the theory that there is a reasonable portion of anything. While I am not a fan of fried or breaded anything (except pickles from Pluckers---yum) I do not think trying it will hurt you. Just monitor your response (cravings, increased hunger) and decide for yourself. No it is not the healthiest option or something you should eat on the daily.

I eat this all the time. We haven't fried traditionally in years though, just an air fryer. As a huge fan of fried chicken since I was a kid, I can honestly say that that the best fried chicken I ever had was fried in lard in a cast Iron skillet, 2nd best was air fried with pork rind coating. Seriously that good in my opinion.

I airfry fish and chicken all the time.

Lean chicken, egg wash, and coconut flour (or almond) is fantastic with a tiny tiny spray of oil

If you're making chicken I STRONGLY suggest you brine it. It tastes awesome and makes it juicy.

I would avoid all the high fat alternatives. While fat isn't bad for you, it's high in calories. And if you're a person with a history of being very fat (cough cough all of us) I would try to keep the Protein high and calories low

I have Popeyes chicken strips once in a while. You just need to account for the calories (147 per strip). Usually I can eat 1 or 2 and that’s a full meal. I eat a bit lighter to accommodate at other meals, but my normal lunch is 250 calories so it’s not that different

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
