you know how the indians used rabbit as a food of last resort. I have notices that chicken just doesnt nourish me. it is annoying since i enjoy chicken but apparantly it doesnt feed me as the next day i am starving and weak.

Are you eating the darker meat, too, or just breast meat?
I eat the fattiest parts of chicken first(including skin). I always save the breast for last and eat it with added fat. Wild birds do not have white meat. The white meat on Turkeys and Chickens is from making them flightless. The muscles aren't used like they're supposed to be and are lacking in nutrients and such. You can breed the underused muscles to be big - but that doesn't make them wholly nutritious.
Not even flightless wild birds such as Ostriches and such have white meat.
Honey badger! Seen the youTube video?
Anyway, are you removing the chicken skin? (The problem with rabbits is their ultra-leanness, right?) I'd think that the rest of your diet should keep you satiated though.
Oh yeah -
If you cook the chicken so most of the fat renders and drains away - you're not getting enough fat with your protein.
Stefansson used the term "rabbit starvation", although I don't know that he actually invented it. (The OED probably has the earliest traceable use in print.) Certainly, American indians seem to have considered that having only very lean meat, such as you get with small game, might actually be worse than having nothing to eat at all. You get diarrhoea within days, and in a couple of weeks you're dead. Political prisoners in some South American countries have actually been deliberately but rather stealthily executed that way—by giving them only lean meat to eat.
I don't know that anyone knows quite why it's so fatal.
Some low-carb diets, though not most, have too much protein and not enough fat. (I think the South Beach Diet is an example.) There are a number of problems with that kind of regimen—not least that it depletes vitamin A from the body.
i think i learned about the rabbit starvation from that Les Stroud's survivorman. He's a pretty interesting guy.
