    Ok, I have a craving for crisps. Biscuits and crisps are my weekness!

    I've kinda gone off pork crunch, and pork scratchings are starting to seem a bit salty for me.

    So.... what i was wondering was, is it ok to eat, say a bag of skips, or quavers, as long as I count the carbs?

    Would it kick me out of ketosis? Not that I'm part of the "peeing on sticks" parade, but you know what i mean! lol!

    I think they would knock you out unfortunately so that is something you have to decide for yourself if you are willing to take the chance .I know i am pretty much now on maintenance but i did find when on my journey there were times when i just had to have something and i found if i had it and got straight back on plan i was ok .I would not recommend this to anyone by any means but i know me as a person and it suited me but i always got right back on track and maybe only did this once a month .One month it was for a pack of crisps but it satisfied the need and i was fine .

    In saying that i am a fine one to talk in that i had a blip yesterday and ate a big chocolate eclair but i can do that and enjoy it now and not feel guilty as i know its not a slippery slope for me

    I've not tried myself but I have seem people make "Meat crisps" I.e. taking slices of ham etc and cooking them in the oven so they go crispy..

    Absolutely no idea how they taste though lol!

    Hmm might try to cheese crisps. Thanks Vicky.

    Clairecat it's up to you. If you really have a bad craving then why not play around with some different veg and salt them lightly to see if they work for you rather than the potatoey ones? I haven't done it, just thought it might be fun to try and at least distract you a bit maybe until the cravings passed :)

    Might have to try those cheese crips again. I melted mine in the micro last time and I couldnt get them off the grease proof paper! lol! And they certainly wernt crispy.

    I've got a silicone baking sheet so will try it later.

    Think I'm gonna try the cheesy lolly pop version....ie same way of cooking, just stick a cocktail stick in before it crisps....

    Anyone tried making the celeriac crisps?
