Craving the Crunch and Taste of Potato Chips

I love potato chips, but they’re horrible to have around when you’re trying to diet. Usually treated as just a snack food, it becomes very easy to eat half if not the whole bag. They’re not filling at all, and they’re so addictive that you can’t stop eating them no matter how many times you tell yourself “this is the last chip!”

Potato chips tend to be loaded with both a lot of fat and carbs as well, a deadly combination when trying to stay lean. I understand though that dieting can be hard sometimes, and no matter how dedicated and determined you are to drop the weight sometimes you gotta have your fix of junk food every once in a while! So the other day when I was at the store, I was really craving some sea salt and vinegar potato chips but I wasn’t going to get any until I came across these, Kettle Brand Bakes Potato Chips. 1 serving is 20 chips, and 120 calories; there’s only 3 grams of fat per serving and minimal sodium as well, and they’re good! I couldn’t even tell the difference between them and regular fried potato chips; the only thing is that you have to make sure all you’re going to have is 20 chips, max! If you start going over that then you’re really going to be taking in an unnecessary amount of carbs for the minimal amount of fullness you’ll feel. So they’re good to have alongside some chicken or fish just to get that crunch!

Also take a look at the ingredients list, there are only 7 things that go into these chips, all of them pretty natural except for Maltodextrin. So this goes to show that although these chips aren’t exactly healthy for you, they’re not necessarily too bad for you either; don’t get it twisted though, have them in moderation especially if you’re dieting!
