Ok i loooooveee chip's and I know im not supposed to be eating them but I can't stay away from them!! Im addicted but I tryed those new baked lays and there nasty! How am I supposed to get away from chips??
Honestly, I prefer hot-air popped popcorn with a bit of salt! You can buy Orveille Reddenbacher (sp.??) at your grocery store and pop it on your stove. It's great cuz it satisfies my salt/crunch craving...plus it's more healthy than chips!!
I forgot to mention the doritos and WOW chips are NOT baked.They taste almost identical to normal chips except A LOT less fat.You don't have to go without or eat baked.These are a lifesaver for me.I love chips too and have to go cross border to get them.
I know exactly where you're coming from! A little over a year ago, I HAD to always keep chips, pretzels, etc..
around the house for those afternoon cravings. I quit smoking, and despite the fact I was eating only WOW chips and f/f Pringles, + putting in 2½ hours of aerobics and weights 6×per week + 5 miles a night running, I packed on 20# within a month's time! My weight had been a steady 115# for 17 years prior to that. I figured it was time for a change. I just quit buying the chips etc.., and started eating 3×per day instead of skipping breakfast and eating all those carbs for lunch. I noticed the cravings for the afternoon chip attack stopped immediately. Just get the chips out of the house, and eat a good breakfast in the morning. I eat 2 eggbeaters, some turkey ham or bacon, 7-8 large strawberries, and 7-8 cooked mushrooms--it's low in carbs (which if I eat too many of, I crave carbs more during the day) and it gives me more energy and less cravings. Bottom line, don't skip meals, and just stop buying all the crap--you'll stop craving them in no time! Believe me, if a lifelong addict like me can quit (@ 43 years old!), so can you! Best of luck!
The key is to stay awayfrom chips. Make a sacrifice. Make a promise to yourself tha you wont eat chips.
I did the same thng with sodas, mayo, chips, etc. I just completly stayed away from it. Not even one bite or sip of any of it. And it has worked geat for me....because now I think all those things are nasty ad I would try them if I wanted to. It works, tr it. But you have to be patient, persistent and not CHEAT!

I gotta agree with this! In fact, I'll take it even farther and say: Some so called foods just aren't- FOOD, that is! ANY processed foods aren't really good for you, some are truly worse than others.
Unfortunately, chips can EASILY fit into the 'truly worse' category. Nutritionally you might as well just eat a big spoon of sugar, and another of sodium (salt), because the body surely sees them (chips) that way.
Lots of good solutions presented in these posts.

I still have to agree with what i said earlier,my nutrionist said its all right to eat bad food just as long as its in proportions and not everday so space out those chip cravings and eat them like once a week or something.
