Can you eat just one potato chip?

If you can stop after eating one chip, you deserve an award for your self-discipline.

A study by Harvard University scientists indicates that potato chips headed the  list of foods that can be blamed for weight gain, according to an article in the June 23, 2011, Dallas Morning News.

“They’re very tasty and they have a good texture. People generally don’t take one or two chips. They have a whole bag,” concluded Dr. F. Xavier Pi-Sunyer, an obesity expert.

The Harvard scientists analyzed the diets of more than 120,000 people from three long-running studies. They concluded that the average participant gained 17 pounds during a 20-year period. Most of them added pounds gradually year after year.

What’s the solution?

These scientists don’t have any revolutionary new solution or lose-30-pounds-in-30 days diet to offer. Instead, they suggest eating more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts. And fewer potato chips, of course.
