I only allow myself a few chips if I REALLY NEED to have them. But Friday nights are game nights in my house and that's my one cheat time of the week. I always know I have that coming up and can usually skip the chips during the week.

Potato chips are weakness of mine so if I have to have them I buy the single bag serving...In the long run it cost more but I don't eat the whole bag in one sitting.

There are devises out there that can make wonderful microwave chips and you can season them with what ever spices you like. It does take some getting use to as far as the timing, but when you think about the calories saving from grease it is so worth it. I am sure you can bake the crisps as wel for the same resultsl.

If they're not full of grease and salt, what good are they? Bags of chips are what does me in. There's a recipe on this site for pita bread chips that I want to try, but I'm seriously afraid of not being able to stop at one serving.
Have you ever tried making chips in the microwave?
I have to admit, I've not had any chips at all in the past 7 months. When I'm with other people, I just say that I'm allergic.

I too love chips. I've found that prepping either frozen shredded hash browns or the refrigerated Simply Potatoes variety in a non-stick skillet with spray oil is satisfying to me. You do have to spray the potatoes also before you flip them, but this is much less fat than you'd get from potato chips. Another crunchier snack I've stumbled upon is slicing summer squash, zucchini, mushrooms and onions thinly and practically dehydrating them on a non-stick griddle with a slight spray of oil and salt. It takes about half an hour on medium heat.

I LOVE chips! So now I allow myself Friday night (our game night - sometimes movie night) to eat them. I overeat them but don't allow myself to go absolutely crazy. Have to save a few for hubby. I've been able to handle this better now that I know Friday is coming!

I'm the same way when it comes too chips. I can't have them in the house or I will devour them. Hide them, I will magically find them. My love pulls the chips and salsa back cause he knows I'm gonna pig out on them. I've gotten better lately. We don't eat out much anymore but when we do I try to set limits for myself.

Also popcorn. The last 4 times we have been to the movies I have set in mind, NO POPCORN. The minute we walk in and I get a whiff it's all I talk about. I LOVE IT. It tortures me but I resist. My love just laughs. He is lactose so he can't have it anyway. The smells and the crunches coming from all around me. And the funny part is I usually make myself sick on that stuff but it never stopped me. Mmmmm heaven.

Just keep walkin..........Laugh it off. I just keep telling myself it's not worth all the salt and calories. I weigh myself daily so I picture what the scale will have to say and that usually keeps me in check.

I love chips. I am the one who can prove the "...can't eat just one" theory. If I start I do not stop. There are actually friends who refuse to go to a Mexican Restruaunt with me because on my own I will devour 2 or three servings of chips and salsa in just a short time.

My only recourse is to simply not start.

Have you googled veggie chips or baked homemade potato chips?

The non-dieter in our household buys the chips and lots of time its the dieters who end up eating them. Really hard to resist sometimes. I have weakness for salty things especially if I am tired and bored.

are you craving starch or crunch? 'cause if it's crunch you want, you might enjoy kale chips. I think they're easy and delicious. Not calorie free, since they need a little oil to roast properly, but they're not empty calories - you get all the goodness of kale with all the crunch of a potato chip. emoticon

Oh, the siren song of paper-thin sliced and fried potatoes! I have similar issues. I found that when I really, really craved chips (and I'm a gamer - the mental habit of chips plus game is a very hard one to break!) that Baked Lays and Popchips in the single-serving bag are not a horrible indulgence. Though they are an indulgence! I've also had success with tortilla chips and salsa, but only when there was people to 'take the bag away' from me after I had a single serving.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...it's learning to dance in the rain.

The chips call me all the time. I'm learning how to ignore them just as I would ignore someone that I didn't want to listen to.

so...my plan to not eat chips went out the door pretty quick when I went to visit my mother and she had them out on the table for us! I still don't plan on buying any myself. I suppose the thing I often try to do if I've indulged a little is try to cut calories somewhere else.

btw..Kelsey's restaurant has also included a section with the calories per serving on their menu...really appreciated
