    Hi guys, was just wondering if it's just carbs we watch out for, as I've taken a liking to pork scratchings and I feel like they may be consumed in multiple quantities X)

    So is it just carbs we look for, or do we have to take other things into consideration too like the fat count etc?

    Cheers!

    just carbs!

    eventually your body will tell you when you need to eat...and scratchings become a thing of the past...or at least a smaller consumption anyway lol

    I've heard people on the forum mention pork crunch. Would anyone know where to get them? The pork scratching are ok but the soft bits aren't and am drinking tons of water because of the salt.

    well in Tesco the Crunch was on the same isle as the crisps and stuff, I just asked an assistant that was nearby if they had any scratchings (they didn't have any) and he pointed the crunch out to me, red bag! :p

    LOL,

    yes we all love scratchings, beware though, I have found that they are not all that legal, some of them have dextrose in, God knows why. Check the lable, always!
