As far as I'm aware, chicken is basically a free food. It's 0 carbs so eat as much as you want. Smile
I'm sorry that you're sad and I hope that you feel better soon.

I know that feeling all too well. I wish I could help but I don't know what causes this sad feeling either. Maybe we are mourning the carbs we use to have. Maybe this is part of the carb withdrawl. It will pass. I hope this help Confused

Sometimes I get really depressed b/4 Aunt Flo comes. Can you do some exercise? What kind of chicken did you eat? There might have been some hidden carbs like in a coating or in the sauce? Hang in there and wait for tomorrow! Wink

I get that too from time to time. Just find ways to cope without food. Sometimes yoga or some kind of deep-breathing relaxation technique can help. Find something to keep you occupied until you feel better. Coming here and sharing helps too. Smile It is good that you over did it on chicken instead of getting out the potato chips, though. You should be proud of that. Hang in there. This time of year is hard, but we will all pull through together.

Love the food that loves you back.

Take it one day at a time!

I have to agree with gardengranny, the Doc should be the one telling you if you are ok to continue or stop taking a medication. You could end up doing more harm than good.
