It may sound obvious, but you should never eat chips before going to sleep, especially if you want to drop a few unwanted pounds. Chips are one of those tasty foods that are difficult to stop eating. Stay away from chips in the evening when you are more likely to keep on and on, whether in front of the computer or television. It’s easier to lose count and overeat when you are distracted. Try snacking on some raw vegetables such as carrots and red bell peppers, or reach for a small handful of almonds. You will get a crunchy texture of chips and the fiber will fill you up faster than chips. Studies show that chips as well as soda provide only empty calories, and they don’t have any health benefits.
