Are deep fried chips bad for health once a week?

I eat chips from a chip fryer once a week. They are fried in fat and I exercise regularly.

fried anything is bad for you no matter how rarely you eat it, it is never good for you.

I agree with Nickx and I would add the following: Whenever you eat somthing that you know is harmful or unhealthful, you are reinforcing a bad habit. What good will come of it? Why not try to find somthing better to take its place?

Re: Are deep fried chips bad for health once a week?

There are so many other tasty snacks that can replace deep fried chips. Even baked chips would be a better option and won't be as bad for you. Lately I've become a big fan of a rice and bean chip that my grocery makes. I don't like beans, but they don't taste like them at all. They are light and crispy and a serving has just over a hundred calories. They're a good treat to have every now and then.

Like you said, the less you eat the fried chips, the better, but I agree that it can definitely become a habit and you might want them even more often. If you feel like you must have them, just have a very small serving and eat them no more than you do now. I occasionally have special decadent treats, but I try to eat them less than once a week. For example, I love a good cupcake, but I don't eat them more than once a month or so! It makes them even more tasty when I can look forward to having one as a special treat.

Once a week is a lot to me. See if you can do once a month or less. Then see if it makes a difference in your overall health.
