Potato Chips – Calorie Savings
How to Save Food Calories and Lose Weight When Eating Potato Chips (Crisps)
Calorie Savings – Potato Chips
Potato Chips are not the ideal diet food if you want to lose weight.
Remember: losing weight means controlling calories. We need to reduce our calories-intake until it is lower than our calorie-expenditure.
Calories – Regular Potato Chips
- 1 oz regular potato chips contains 150 calories.
- Three times a week, that’s 23,400 calories, per year
Better Calorie-Choice – Lite Potato Chips
- 1 oz ‘Lite’ potato chips contains 110 calories.
- That’s 17,160 calories per year.
If you substitute lite chips for regular potato chips in this way, you save 6,240 calories per year.
Weight Loss Consequences of this Calorie Saving
6,240 calories per year is the equivalent of 1.75 pounds of weight.
