3 x 25g packets of crisps typically has a glycaemic-load equivalent to 8 teaspoons of sugar.

Just accept that you've had sufficient carbs for your next meal, and move on.

Is there sugar in crisps

Not added sugar; all carbohydrate is broken down to glucose in the body. That's why for the long term the quality is important, because you want it to be accompanied by the vitamins, minerals and fibre our body needs.

However, some foods are so carb dense that it is easy to have way more than our body needs, despite their healthy image. NICE guidelines have endorsed some infographics this year phcuk.org/nice/ to illustrate this.

Back away from the crisps. You can draw a line under it and move on.

Go brush those teath! Crisps taste awful on a background of mint.

Call it damage limitation.

Eat the crisps, enjoy the crisps, don't have guilt, just grab a ham salad for your next meal......eat what you want to, strike a balance through the day......don't feel guilty, changing your mental relationship with food is half the battle.

Last night I drank 3 small glasses of white wine, sigh. Do not be discouraged.. Am not going into mourning, but will go to gym this morning for an hour. :) I am sure we all "fall of the wagon" occasionally. It is important to not be discouraged.

i fell off the wagon last week , big time, if only 3 bags of crisps,lol. I came on here to rant but everyone is right, don't beat yourself up. carry on with your healthy eating. on week 6 of the plan in the did you know ,it says, setbacks are normal when trying to change habits of a lifetime.accept this, and it will help you have the right attitude to get on back when a slip up does ooccur. keep going you can do it. :-)

It happens!! There will be slips but don't dwell on it. If you think you're going down that slippery road again, think before you open the packet/have another drink etc. Question yourself - do I really need it!!?

I agree with Bubbalicious. I am a lifelong yoyo dieter. I have found that the deprivation of foods like crisps when we embark on a diet plan, for me, will sooner or later lead to a binge of crisps.

Pumpkins, if its any consolation I do that on a regular basis, and I gobble them up within minutes. - McCoys Crisps are my downfall.

I hope you come to terms with this fattyfifty. Effectively, you have a sugar addiction. Yes, if you continue to get into a state you associate with the quick-fix of crisps you will succumb.

To our body, eating 3 x 25g bags of crisps is equivalent to eating over 8 teaspoons of sugar.

It's even harder for people who are afraid to eat natural fats like olives or nuts that satisfy our needs.
