Does Anyone Else Crave Tortilla Chips?

25 January 2011 - 09:50 PM

Hi everyone,

I have celiacs and crave tortilla chips like crazy. I can go through a half a bag of chips a day, like the big bag of plain corn tortilla ones. Im not allergic to corn, but Im allergic to dairy, eggs, gluten, blueberries, mustard, tomatoes, eggplant, peanuts, sunflower, sesame, pinto beans, brazil nuts... and more its a long list so Im really limited. Im thin so its not like Im trying to drop alot of weight, but I have soft areas I want to tone and I know if I cut out all the calories I eat from chips it would make a huge difference. Its also not healthy to eat that much chips and I cant stop! Its mostly when I eat veggies, oddly enough, that I crave chips. I make healthy garbanzo beans with avocado and steamed veggies and I have to have chips with it. Or a salad, or Daiya cheese on brussel sprouts (my favorite pre-non-gluten eating food is Kraft Mac n Cheese mmmmmmmmm)... I feel twice as hungry right after I have veggies and all I can think about is chips. And I cant stay away from them. Any ideas on why I crave chips, and why always with veggies? Anyone else have this problem?
