A few years ago I underwent a dietary change in order to lower my cholesterol.
I didn't have much trouble cutting out fatty foods and going on a low-fat diet. There are plenty of products available these days to make it easier. They have low or non-fat salad dressings, cheeses, sour cream and ice cream. They even have non-fat hot dogs and bologna for pete's sake.
So I'm doing just fine. I'm not worried that I'm going to fall off the wagon and suddenly order 3 super-sized servings of french fries. But if there ever was one food that could cause me to slip, it would definitely have to be...
Mmmm. Potato chips. Greasy, salty, crunchy, tasty potato chips. Mmmm. With tons of sour cream and chive dip. Mmmm.
Before my "diet," I could (and occasionally would) eat an entire large bag of chips in one sitting. And I'm not talking about the single serving size, I'm talking about one of those family picnic-sized bags that come two to a box.
To me, chips might as well be crack because once I get started I don't have the ability to stop. In fact, the Lay's Dill Pickle variety are SO addictive, I'm not sure they aren't laced with it. Maybe I ought to just check the label.Well, whatta ya know.
But this doesn't really surprise me. Remember their old ad? "No one can eat just one!"
I'm just saying...
