^^^ Like you OP I am overweight, and also love the same snacks with beer. Especially pork scratchings. Am trying to turn a lot of stuff around of late, not least my unhealthy/unsustainable eating habits. It’s been hard to face/admit but poor health ruled my life for 20 years and my reactionto that has been to become addicted to shit food. Which now rules a good part of my life. Its a daily struggle to change. But – seaweed snacks do taste amazingly good! They dont pretend to be filling. Beer is filling 😉
Does anyone else do that thing where you want a snack, you know what snack you want but then you munch through several different healthy snacks, trying to avoid the bad snack, before finally succumbing to the original snack desire anyway.
Overall kcal count is higher than if you’d just eaten what you really wanted in the first place.
When alcohol is involved, this is my general cycle.
Sorry OP, not helpful, just wanted to share.
Oh, actually, red peppers and humous or babybel with branston. M&S prawn crackers or mini poppadums are less kcals than a similar sized bag of proper crisps.
I think I’ll experiment with roasted vegetables laced with chilli or some such. Do you reckon roasted green beans would work. I will try that chick pea idea as well. It has to be dry though, couldn’t mix any form of cheese with beer.
