    Default How to make low calerie and healthy food not taste like tree bark?

    I find the hardest thing about fat loss is the disparity in taste satisfaction and lust between a

    1) KFC chicken meal, 11 herbs and spices coating, with fries deep fried with salt, with full fat ice cream with a chocolate flake, and a big bottle of full sugar coke

    VS

    2) Chicken breast fried in good fats, with spices rubbed in flour coating, low fat oven fries grilled, big salad, diet pepsi max, for afters yogurt with chocolate sprinkles


    Number 2 what I should be eating, just isnt anywhere near as yummy satisfying or desired even though considerable effort went into trying to make it compete with KFC chicken

    Is it just not possible? Will junk always be better or do I need more skill in the kitchen?

    I even heard Gorden Ramsies kid say this fried chicken is awesome can we have it every night and Gorden said no its too unhealthy, meaning even a world class chef has a child that prefers plain junk food to world class super expensive restaurant level food or healthy versions of it.

    It's a shame, right?

    For me it isn't really fried chicken. It's more about chili cheese fries.

    There's a nice burger joint literally 6 blocks away from my house so I always go there for my cheat meal.

    I tried making a "healthy" version of it that would fit my macros and it was no where near as good

    Well, step 1. Stop over-cooking your chicken. Step 2, find some real recipes.

    Chicken breast shouldn't be cooked over 150F if you want it to still be moist. The guideline for 165 is based off the idea that 165 for 2 seconds is enough to kill all pathogens. 150 for 5 minutes has the same effect without wrecking your food.

    So, honestly, fried chicken will always win. But seared chicken with a nice marsala sauce is hard to turn down and takes only marginally more effort.
