    How to make cold cooked chicken breasts edible: put them through the food processor with equal parts of kimchi and a large dollop of mayonnaise.

      I have a sneaky suspicion Ray is just a huge Jello fan and decided to dedicate his life to proving that its the perfect food source.

      However, in my veg/vegan days I did have the skills to make tofu and seitan quite edible. So...maybe I could do wonders with shoe leather and feed it to you!
      heheh... hey eat what you love I say! I love chicken thighs with skin and all (gots to get my collagen ). Back in the day I did the 5day/week body builder split eating 6x/day with chicken breast accounting for most of those meals.... burned out to say the least. Now I'm high fat (for 3 years) and loving food and training just 2x/week. Definitely a to each their own situation.

        That does sound good..... love me some kimchi and mayo as flavoring agents. My wife makes homemade mayo at least once a week.

          ...And that's exactely my point! What's up with vitamin B, one or various from the B-complex that creates hunger or stimulates appetite and makes you want to eat more? I have seen studies on rodents, and if I remember correctly also some old studies on humans, where Brewers yeast makes rodents/humans gain weight, so I wonder if this is related to some of the B-vitamins? A possibilty is that the B-vitamins increase the metabolism, makes you spend more energy and because of that you get hungry faster! Here an article that alludes that as a possibility:

            Are you serious? All you gotta do with chicken breast is chop it up and throw it in a curry! Soaks up flavour and is waaay more succulent than beef cooked the same way.

            Not that I eat chicken these days anyway. (Thanks a bunch, Peat )

              I think Rich has a crush on Ray Peat. He brings him into EVERY conversation!

              Yo, Rich - they have a forum for people like you... join the other Ray Peat pleasure seekers

The driest meats I've ever had are overcooked cheap cuts of steak. Ever have well done london broil? Painfully bad.

                Chicken breast is much more satisfying per calorie than fatty steak or pork because it's higher in protein with a similar water content.
                In your opinion......

                  Fat is definitely what satiates me. If I have chicken breast with veges/salad I'm starving. Add fat and I'm sweet. I wouldn't be surprised if its different per individual. I have read research years ago that most Asians are satiated by high carbs quite quickly. My background is Northern European so it makes sense I'm a fat loving beast. Pass me the dairy please

                    Me too. My system *needs* fat. I'd have to add butter to the veggies and have the chicken skin-on or it'd have to be fried or there would have to be cheese added somewhere. Fat makes me calmer and stops me craving refined carbs and sugar. My work mates got a pizza yesterday. I wanted it too but I put extra butter on my home cooked dinner and was able to resist the pizza.

                      Choco, didn't you mention london broil in the crockpot in that other thread where the dude was calling you out? If so is that why you know firsthand about how it is so bad when it's cooked to "well done" :-P
