Oh boy I'm craving these now!
Just not sure I'll be able to stick to only a couple!

If you can't stick to a couple, just don't give yourself the choice :) Avoid them altogether until you feel that you can :)

I haven't had chips in such a long time.

I never walk down the chips, lollies and chocolate section of my local woollies, as I may fall into temptation :lol:

I will have to keep this in mind for the next time I have a chip craving.

Thanks for the tip :D

You can make them yourself by tearing pita bread into pieces, spraying them with a tiny amount of spray-oil and sprinkling them with herbs or spices then baking them in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes. You don't even have to use the spray-oil, but I find it helps the herbs & spices to stick better. I always make a huge bowl for when we have guests. Served with salsa it makes a healthy (and cheap) alternative to chips and dips.

I find it hilarious how supermarkets try and get to people like you. ;) Like in my two local Woolies, one has the bread in the same isle as the chocolate, and at the other one, it's the coffee! So anyone who needs their coffee has to make it past the chocolate to get there!!!

I like to oven bake mountain/lavash bread too. Good with tzatziki or other healthy style stuff and none of the sugars/salts in seasoning.

Can someone please tell me the KJs and saturated fat in a serving size? And how much that serving size is? Please?

Juddy! OMG. You are seriously saying that you cant have these because you want to lose weight, but you will have a chicken snitzel from your local chicken shop?! OMG. I am trying to lose weight, and the snitzel sounds WAY worse than some of these pita chips! And dont pull the carb thing on me.... a snitzel has carbs!

Don't get angry.

A schnitzel has mostly protein and fat in it. The bread crumb coating is what has the carbs in it...

Can we please try to leave any slanging off the forums? Whatever food people want to eat, they can eat. If it works for them, great! It's not for us to comment on.

argh. The problem with online conversations, is that the tone is not there! I am sorry, my tone has come across all wrong there. My response was about comparing chips to chicken snitzel. If I was standing there in person and my friend said "hey, the chips are bad for weight loss, instead I have a chicken snitzel", I would have still said "OMG, you are comparing these chip things to a chicken snitzel"! But the tone would come out better.

And everyone posts about what each other eats. About alternatives etc. Juddy brought up the chicken snitzel, so why cant I comment on it (albeit it with clearer tone).

So I am sorry, there was no anger Juddy! Just... conversation!

You're right, you can comment on what I eat, in fact, I'd encourage it, so long as you provide reasons for why you think the things I eat aren't going to further my weight loss.

I on the other hand, get attacked for questioning other people's eating habits... so I'm happy for conversation, but although there is less tone that comes across online, you can pretty much join the dots as to how people feel about what you're saying.

For instance, when I questioned weightwatchers, a thread popped up about people like me who have no idea about WW etc etc:
http://www.weightloss.com.au/forum/view ... hp?t=11996

It has come across clearly to me (maybe I completely missed the tone), that my opinion doesn't count because I have no idea what I'm talking about...

No one here seems to want to listen to people providing nutritional advice. Or providing advice from personal experience - things that have worked, things that haven't.

The way you lose weight is by trying things out for yourself and listening to everything people say, to work things out for yourself! I know schnitzels aren't the healthiest thing in the world, and by cutting it out of my diet I'll be one step closer to my goal... but I don't fool myself into thinking that it is fine!

Sooner or later people here will realise that chips aren't healthy, it is junk food. If you want to have it anyway, but you know it isn't good, that's fine - have them as a treat!

But I've already said enough, people don't give a censored anyway.

Good luck with your goals!
