    Any Low Carb Snacks Worth Eating?

    I've been following the threads regarding keeping the weight off during winter. Like many others it's the carb snacking that does me in. Whats a good option to various chips and popcorn (which I only eat with butter)? It's hard to watch an entire football game or two hour RAAM specail....without snacking on something?

    Pretzels are OK...but the best tasting ones have a high fat content as well.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    Nuts. Almonds and Pistachios are a good choice.
    Cheese is good too (filling and low carb).
    Fat in itself isn't a bad thing, in limited quantities
    (and the type of fat).

    Most of the French cheeses are low cholesterol aswell as low fat, but I prefer a good cheddar. But what are you doing snacking watching the telly? I've just come back from the Gym, and I'm Starving. My problem now to get the carbs back is is it going to be a Curry or a Kebab?

    I realize there are different fats, but I had always heard that nuts were bad for you (high cholesterol) as well. Only certain kinds? How about roasted peanuts and cashews? The fat content on the label of these items looks pretty grim.

    There is NO cholesterol in nuts or in any other vegetable product. However, they are high in fat. But some believe it is one of the better (or even "good" fats). For more info on dietary fat than you'll probably ever want, go here:

    Macadamia Nuts are absolutely georgeous - and 200 cals for 11 nuts!

    Diabetic Mazipan can be very nice - but some is poor quality.

    The only Atkins bar I like is the Chocolate Indulgence

    Tyson's frozen barbeque wings. Very low in carbs and higher in protein.

    Sardines , tasty treat, very low carbs.

    Don't tell anyone but this afternoon I had dew berries (aka blackberries) that I picked the other day
    with sour creme laced with a teaspoon or so of sugar. Ya, baby, talk about good eats.
    Here, here are some joints, and a guitar.

    those god awful pre made low carb things are only good to feed lab rats. and if they have a choicde they won't eat them either. same with most of the low fat crap out there too. eat real food low carb or no.
    the less processed the better off you will be.

    or

    just ride more & worry that you're not getting enough carbs.
