    This is not an "unlimited Chicken Thigh Day" approach. I felt that was obvious, but apparently it isn't. So, I'll state this for you, nek, and everyone else......it is only 7 thighs. No more. No less.

    The reason why Pensee is doing a larger amount of chicken thighs on her modified Chicken Thigh Day is because she's not using it as a correction day. She's eating chicken thighs to set in her previous day's successful weightloss, from a Steak Day that actually worked for her. She's just eating chicken thighs, and also eating chicken wings. And chicken legs. BUT she is not using the chicken thighs as a Chicken Thigh Day. It's not a correction day for her.

    If you just wanted to eat to stabilize after any correction day you have done...eating chicken thighs may help with the stabilization of the previous day's weightloss goal....IF you don't eat carbs. Slowly work in carbs after a couple of no-carb days after a successful correction day. This seems to help some people keep off the weight they lost on their correction day -- whatever they chose to use for their correction day strategy (whether it's a Steak Day, or a Full Fat Fage Day, or the actual Chicken Thigh Day, or anything else).

    I get REALLY grossed out at cooking chicken on the bone, and I suck at it too. Could I buy some already cooked ones from a restaurant?

    I don't personally trust anyone to cook my food other than me. This is due to not knowing exactly what they put on it. They could use oils that are thyroid inhibitors ("vegetable" oils) or use shortening (also a thyroid inhibitor). They could use sugar in their marinades. They may put a large amount of sodium on it, or use sodium in a solution it's kept in.

    So my first initial gut reaction: no. Don't go to a restaurant to get these thighs made for you. Too many variables. Sugar and sodium additions are perhaps the worst offenders.

    If I were you, I'd just have someone I know personally -- a friend or spouse -- do all the cooking for me! Have them cook the thighs all at once, and then leave them in your fridge. Uncovered, as the moment it gets covered, condensation develops (and the skin gets all weird and rubbery; not inedible, but doesn't make eating it a pleasure). But I would strongly recommend against using anything that was prepared in a restaurant. I would also avoid anything pre-cooked and in the freezer section at a grocery store.

After roasting, I save the bones and drippings and cover with water in a large stockpot, bring it to a boil, then turn the heat down and let it simmer for about 4-6 hours. When it's done, I strain the broth from the bones. This makes the absolute BEST chicken stock/broth. And depending, I may even make another batch of broth from the same bones, it's just not as rich as the first batch. Then when the broth is left to set overnight in the fridge, all the fat solidifies on the top for to make schmaltz. So I'm able to get several uses out of just one chicken. BTW, schmaltz makes a super flaky crust for savory pies.

    Ohhhhh, soooo goood! This is great. I'm trying to come up with recipes that support my burgeoning love of animal fat in cooking as we speak! So this is excellent. Thanks, SchnuffelBunny!

    Mine comes out to 1960 calories for 7 pieces.

    Per piece:
    280 calories

    17g protein

    So that comes to 0% carbs/76% fat/24% protein.

    Is this still going to work?

    My calorie count is based on what they have *after* cooking. You're likely looking at the nutrition information on the package, which is the raw content of the thighs. Is that where you're getting this data from? Please let us know!

    And, FYI: the 7 thighs principle was part of the protocol before I reported calorie information. I just used my iPhone app to find out what the nutrition data was for the cooked thighs after I heard about the 7 thighs. So if data is incorrect on calories, the point is moot; it's valid without calorie count. The 7 thighs procedure was not developed to remain within a low calorie count; it just happened to show that it was at 1072 calories on my iPhone app, after I heard about the 7 thighs used on the correction day. I believe the real key to its success is its fat/carb/protein ratio. And, Lord willing, if we ever eat thighs that have more fat than the 58% balance in the thighs as reported before...that's actually not horrible! AS LONG AS the food we're eating has more fat than protein, that's the good news. Because it takes our bodies more energy to break down fat and digest it than any other macronutrient.

    The problem is, when we add fat with sugar....or fat with starch! That's when our bodies start packing on the pounds.

    In fact, Simeons says this in Pounds and Inches: "If no carbohydrates whatsoever are eaten, fats can be indulged in somewhat more liberally and even small quantities of alcohol, such as a glass of wine with meals, does no harm, but as soon as fats and starch are combined things are very liable to get out of hand."

    And one last thing: keep in mind that the grams of fat, carbs, and protein are not useful as ratio tools in and of themselves, when glancing at a package. The ratio is not grams, but calories from grams. I know -- it's a little confusing.

    KEEP IN MIND:
    Each fat gram is 9 calories, each carb gram is 4 calories, and each protein gram is 4 calories. THOSE calories are what is used in the ratio. NOT the grams themselves. Just the ratio of those calories that come from each gram, to each other. I use an iPhone app (listed in my signature) to do all the heavy lifting for me...if I find a site that calculates the calorie ratios from grams of food, I'll link it here.

    So no worries! But do let us know where you got your info from.

    Yes, my numbers are from the package.

    I just went to flip the chicken for the last 15 minutes, and they are all stuck to the damn tin foil.. ugh.

    Did you wiggle them during the first 15 minutes, or at any other time before this?

    And, FYI: the info I got was from a national database that my iPhone app uses, and that database has numbers for cooked and raw versions of most foods. I only use the cooked version data, as that's what I'm putting into my body anyhow. Makes the most sense to me.

    From what I've been told, this same data used in the app (for the cooked chicken thighs I posted) is pulled from the USDA testing facilities, where nutrition data is tested and logged for Dieticians.

    I seriously wouldn't worry about calories or ratios or anything at this point. It's moot. The 7 thighs principle was enacted before I broke down the data for everyone here on the forums. It worked before I reported its data. I didn't create this correction day; I merely discovered it, and told other people about it, and talked about how I did mine successfully. So if your data differs, in any way whatsoever, cooked or raw, et cetera...no worries, 'k?

    Proceed with your Chicken Thigh Day. Don't eat anything else. Don't use butter, seasoning (salt is ok though), or oils, or "non-stick" spray (because its ingredients are inhibitors to weightloss), don't buy them from a restaurant...all that stuff. Starting at lunch, which will be your first meal, drink around a gallon of water at the most, and about 9 small cups of coffee (or three large mugs of coffee) throughout the day. And at lunch, too, start putting lemon in your water. You'll be okay.

    And let us know how it all goes!! Good luck, jesseca_lynn.

    Hey jesseca_lynn, if you have kitchen thongs, you can grab each thigh and "roll" them away from the foil. Sort of like sloooowwwwwly, gently peeling them from the foil. That worked for me.

    Also: if anyone is starting a Chicken Thigh Day today, be sure to "wiggle" the thighs in the first 15 minutes. And, if you really want to be proactive, check on the thighs every 20 minutes or so, and wiggle them again whenever you check on them.

    Worst case scenario: you'll have foil-y thighs. That's just a matter of peeling it off after its all done cooking, which isn't impossible. Could be aggravating...but....if you wiggle them in the beginning and perhaps throughout the cooking time, you'll be less likely to have to peel them off later.

    AW: The Ultimate P3 Correction Day: I Lost 2.6 lbs on a Chicken Thigh Day!!!!!!!!!!

    Jess, good luck with ur chicken thigh day.

    AFM, I ate another leg for lunch & at dinner time was still so stuffed I couldn't eat anything else. So decided to ve a huge coffee with hwc & butter to up my cal & fat. So ended up with abt 1500 cal & 67% fat, 2% carbs for the day.
    As expected I didn't lose, but maintained my loss from the SD. Which was what I wanted in the first place. We'll see how it looks tomorrow after going back to eating veggies & a small peach.

    Really don't know how u can maintain such a little % of carbs. Love my veggies far too much to b able to do that. And fruits...

    I also cook my chicken broth myself & put it in ice cube containers & freeze it. Did the same with duck broth... yummy.

    Had 3 eggs for breakfast today. No tummy issues so far. We'll c what the scale says tomorrow... hope lasering really worked.

    Hi Pensee!

    Woo hoo! Glad to hear your day went well. For anyone late to the conversation, Pensee was using chicken thighs on sort of a "modified" thigh day to set in her previous day's (which was a correction day) successful weightloss. So she wouldn't gain it back.

    Pensee, what I think works for some people, to set in a successful correction day's weightloss, is to have a couple no-carb days, then slooowwwwlllyyyy work in carbs after that. You were able to have 2% carbs the following day -- which is awesome. To be on the safe side though, I'd probably hold off on carbs myself for the next couple of days, then get back to using carbs. Not a mandate, but a cautious approach based on my own body's reaction to carbs in the past. Could be the case for you; hard to say.

    An example:
    Correction day
    Post-correction day 1: no carbs
    Post-correction day 2: no carbs
    Post-correction day 3: 1-3% carbs
    Post-correction day 4: 1-3% carbs
    Post-correction day 5: 3-5% carbs
    Post-correction day 6: 3-5% carbs
    Post-correction day 7: 5-7% carb
    Post-correction day 8: 5-7% carb
    Post-correction day 9: 7-9% carbs
    Post-correction day 10: 7-9% carbs


    ...with the max amount of carbs being eaten being 10% overall. And again, this ratio is the amount of calories gained from each gram of carbs, not the number of grams of carbs themselves. This way of working in carbs after a successful correction day loss is...well, it sounds intensive. But you get the point. No carbs at first, then a tiny amount after, and so on and so forth. What I've done when trying to first re-introduce carbs after a successful correction day (the chicken thigh day) is have no carbs for breakfast and lunch and my afternoon snack, then a handful of mixed spring greens (organic), by a brand such as Organic Girl that I find at my local supermarket. That's how you have virtually no carbs at first, when you're re-introducing them. You don't have carbs at every meal in tiny amounts; just one meal with a decent amount, and of a carb that's a veggie, that isn't high in grams of carbs (hence the spring mix).

    Great to see your loss "stuck" Pensee! Thanks for posting!!
