Tortilla Popchips Review
I was excited to try the new tortilla Popchips. We love regular Popchips for all sorts of reasons – they taste great, have a great texture, a crispy crunch and they are lower in fat and calories than regular fried chips.
I love guacamole and to me, nothing goes better with it than a great tortilla chip. As you know, most tortilla chips have 7 grams or more of fat per serving! That adds up quickly. A one ounce serving of Popchips has only 4 grams of fat. Each type tortilla Popchip is made with stone ground corn masa, which gives them an authentic tortilla chip taste – just sans all that fat because these are popped! I tried the salsa tortilla Popchips with some guacamole and it was a great combination! With other tasty flavors like nacho cheese, ranch and chili limon, there’s a Popchip tortilla chip for all tastes.
Tips from Jillian Michaels
Check out these great tips from Jillian Michaels that will help us our weight loss journeys.
1) Do two daily 100s a day: a daily 100 is 100 seconds or 100 reps of any exercise, like jumping jacks or the plank. In the middle of your work day, stop what you’re doing and do a 100 and you will up your metabolism, burn calories, and keep you in a fit state of mind.
2) Spare the guilt, not the pleasure: everyone says that eating well doesn’t necessarily mean giving up your favorite foods. It’s all about finding the right alternatives. if you’re a snack fanatic try new tortilla Popchips. available in four naturally delicious flavors (nacho, salsa, chili limon, and ranch) and with only 120 calories per single serving bag, tortilla Popchips are a healthier way to satisfy your salty, crunchy snack cravings.
3) Go to bed (just slightly) hungry: now, I’m not saying to go to bed starving! Just a little hungry! If you are a tad overweight, your body is used to consuming a specific amount of calories to support your current state of weight. If you cut your calorie count by even just 300 calories, you will likely feel it at first. It takes a few days for your body to readjust to the new norm. The idea is not to go to bed starving, but to keep your body’s goal weight at one that is healthy.
4) Eat off of a smaller plate: instead of a big “dinner” plate, serve up your meal on a smaller “salad” plate. It’s probably the easiest way to trick your brain into thinking that you are consuming lots of food, while really eating only a little… or at least less.
