According to research, french fries are the number one food keeping you fat, and chips were the second worst offender. Enjoying a few in moderation is fine as a treat, but they should not have a regular place on your plate if you're trying to lose weight. In general, fried foods tend to be saturated in fat and heavy on refined carbs.
Better Choice: Opt for a protein- and fiber-rich baked potato, but go light on all the fixings; this alternative will fill you up for far longer than its fried counterpart. If you can't live without a crispy snack, try one of these recipes for healthy baked chips.
