Drum Rolls! We have an announcement: Late-night binge imposter, we found you!
Do you know that every 100g of fried potato chips adds 536 calories to your daily calorie count? Yes, your favorite binge-watching snacks might be good for your taste buds, but is it good for your health?
ABSOLUTELY NOT (Inner voice screaming!)
While picking up our munchies, we do plan to stop after eating a handful but does that ever happen? No, right! Binge watching is surely harmful for the eyes, but binge eating can be healthy, if you choose the right snacks.
Why Switch to Healthier Snacks?
Eating a few chips or spoons of ice cream is not harmful. However, binging on them will lead to weight gain. Fried snacks are loaded with oil and trans fat that can lead to high blood pressure, diabetes, acne breakouts etc. if you do love a late night movie marathon, then why not enjoy it with a bowl of roasted makhanas that are full of flavors and health? Our Health Experts recommend swapping your oily snacks with trail mixes, dry fruits, dried berries, makhana and protein rich chips and cookies.
If you had plans on restocking your snacks, then read the table below to know how many calories every 100 g of these oily creatures might add to your body:
|Snacks||Calories (per 100 g serving)|
|Fried potato chips||536|
|Ice cream (Vanilla)||207 (might vary based on flavour and brand)|
|Dry Fruits / Berries||359 (fewer calories from fat)|
