    May I also suggest Thai Bites or other rice crackers. Also, Skips, Quavers and Monster Munch have significantly less fat and calories then other crisps - skips only has 98 cals a packet. Or the Walkers Sensations Poppadums. They have next to no calories or fat in them as well.

    Another tip: drinks tons of water. You'll feel so bloated you wouldn't be able to eat!

    I like the ones with caramel flavour.

    Haven't tried those ones. Can't beat chili. Or am I getting mixed up?

    Space Invaders crisps are very low fat too, and Walkers Lites as well.

    I'm trying to drink lots of water at work, haven't had any diet coke at work all week (and not much at home either) and have eaten no rubbish at all and only mandarin oranges or low fat yoghurt between meals. I'm feeling very virtuous. Will be back to normal size in no time :)

    Get a potato peeler and a sweet potato.

    'Shave' the sweet potato to make loads of wafer thin 'crips' from the sweet potato and bke them...

    Very low fat crips that'll cost you 'pennies'... Very good for you too...

    Just 'spice' them with whatever (garlic powder, chilli etc search the web for ideas) or eat them 'in the raw'.

    Oh and don't forget about fruit!!! Apples, bananas etc...

    Dunno, we don't have chili here, only cheese and caramel.

    MikeD, the chilli ones IIRC are sour cream and sweet chilli flavour. They are part of a newish range that are smaller than the other two.

    Christ, is everyone on here on a diet then????

    Igave up smoking 1 year ago (coor, how great do I feel now) but I put on 2 stone, gonna shake that off now (loosing about 2 punds a week using my 'special' 3 a day diet)...

    Is everyone dieting 'cause they stopped smoking too?

    Sort of. I gave up a year ago as well. But there was also the over indulgence on takeaways, alcohol and junk food - mainly due to having a very hectic couple of years.

    I've quit smoking but when I was having problems with my ex I started comfort eating and never quite got out of the habit. Plus I had a very dodgy back that meant I had to give up my aerobics classes. Consequently I put on a bit of weight. I should find it easy enough to shift though, given that I've stopped the comfort eating now, and I'm wanting to buy a bike to get some exercise :) Walking just bores me, really, and I'm still a bit wary of hurting my back again by doing anything too strenuous.

    Angel, have you tried Yoga at all? It's hard work but it actually helps your back rather than make it worse. Plus it's not boring like running and doesn't kill you by making you out of breath.

    Aye, I used to do it quite a lot but have been far too lazy of late. I really should get back into it as I used to really like it.

    Cycling can be bad for some back problems. Pilates has been great for mine and the wifes back problems. Mine are just muscular whilst she has disc and joint problems in her back.

    Kebabs no good for you then?!

    As for snacks, fruit all the way. Doesn't help you as you're after savoury stuff, but works a treat for me.

    Now, if only I could stop drinking all that beer, I might actually lose some weight....

    Exercise - swimming everytime. Its low impact, so is great for those with dodgy joints, bad backs etc, and uses a huge amount of muscles. If you can get past the boredom.....

    Ugh, how can you eat Snack-a-Jacks?

    I had a free sample pack forced upon me as I was walking down the street one day and they tasted of feet. No joke.

    They're not that bad, Stixx. They've got a niced baked taste to them, which some people think is like feet. I can't get enough of them personally.

    The barbecue ones aren't bad, and it's amazing how accustomed you can become to eating polystyrene.

    Only problem with snack-a-jacks, the bloody MESS they make...

    It's impossible to eat one without it breaking up into tiny bits and going all over you/the floor/everything

    I forgot about snack a jacks. Before I started eating rubbish, I used to buy snack a jacks all the time. Pink & Whites are nice too, can you buy those over here? the wafers with marshmallow inside? There's absolutely no badness in them at all, six of them is the equivalent of half a Dairy Milk :)
  • Deleted user 20 January 2005 14:17:25
    And they taste nicer than a Dairy Milk too. Damn, I'd forgotten about them. Now I want some. Damn you, A_T ;)!

    Aside from the fact that pink and whites are made from pork gelatin, nope, there's nothing bad about 'em at all ;)

    They sell 3 sizes - the fist size ones, bit smaller ones and the little smaller than crisp bitesize. The bigger ones are like eating flavoured cardboard. The tiny crisp a like ones are lovely.
