    Im pretty much happy with my carb free lifestyle,except im really really missing crisps.
    I know its a diet an it means cutting out things,but im wondering if anyone has the same craving,and how they deal with it.....:confused:

    Oh poor you. Believe or not I craved apples! I didn't realise just how many I eat, lol.

    What about making yourself some parmesan crisps? Use a vegetable peeler & grate little piles om to a baking sheet & bake. Very tasty with salt & pepper :)

    Just remember, you're 13lbs lighter, that's got be better than eating crisps! x

    you could make a substitue....cheese crisps!

    grated cheese blobbed onto a baking tray and grilled, watch them closely, when all melted and bubbly remove and cool.....now bad.

    i DID crave crisps, anything savoury, doritos and pringles.......mmmm

    i eat scratchings or pork crunch and it takes away the cravings a little (eating out of a bag) but to be fair, ive got over it and dont crave now.

    worth no crisps for losing weight :D

    The others have already given good advice. I ws just gonna chirp in with the pork scratchings bit. you get the same crunch and because you're eating out of a bag it feels the same.

    DOn't stray! You've done so very well already so just keep strong -crisps wont make you feel as good as continuing.

    GOOD LUCK!

    Hey Missy I tried the cheese under the grill, However I think i must have taken them out too soon because they did not crisp up. They were like soft spiders webs. I shall try again lol!
