    I love crisps aswel - bakes are usually better,things like quavers or pom bears but tbh if I start eating them I don't stop so have learnt to avoid completely xx

    Same boat as emmamb i have to avoid crisp im a savoury not a sweet person, think french fries are meant to be lower in fat then other crisps. Or boots do a nice range of veg crisps low fat ones

    tescos, asda, morrisons, probably other supermarkets do a multipack of Velvet Crunch in either thai chilli or cheese flavour, and their about 80 cals a bag and reallllly low fat, and really nice as well, low carb too :)

    and are around £1.60 for a 6pack :) xx

    I haven't trusted myself buying crisps yet. I'm afraid that if I have one packet I won't be able to stop and will eat that whole six pack. The other week i was feeling a bit low and there were some hula hoops in the house i ended up eating 2 packets together.

    I thought I'd try these when I heard everyone raving about them so when I saw them in the supermarket last night and started reading the packet they are 10.6g of fat per 100g! How can that be low fat?

    I didn't try them . That's just way too much of a risk for me. It's asking for a tango visit

    Oh No! They don't fit :(

    I hadn't checked them yet. I'm only a week in with the Xen and haven't wanted to add anything like this into my diet yet. I was quite excited when I saw them mentioned as I love the Velvet.

    Never mind!

    Exante TS was using Xenical and eating low fat and low cal. Exante baby!!!
    I haven't found a packet of crisps that fit the under 5g rule...I just don't have them. I prefer to get potatoes, thinkly slice them, spray on some 1cal spray and toss with mixed herbs etc, whack them in the oven and voila... lovely :)

    i think i'm glad they don't fit the rules. If i found any that did i'd probably use my entire calorie allowance, and more. Just can't help myself.
    Think in a couple of weeks i might try the ryvita things, think i'd could probably stop with 1 bag

    I'm not doing xenical at the moment, but saw this thread and had to share....

    I've not tried velvet crunch yet, but I did eat Sainsburys version and they are in rules!

    Sainsbury's Sweet Chilli Cassava Multipack, Be Good To Yourself

    £1.23 for 6 pack, 0.6g of fat per pack, 76 cals, and 2.6g of fat per 100g. They are really lovely! I think they do other falours too.

    Also rivita thins are a gorgeous, but expensive alternative that are in rules... all this talk of food is not good when on a vlcd!
