Default Portion control - corn tortilla chips

A scant handful weighs 1/2 oz, which should contain 10 gms of carbs. Plus
whatever the guacamole dip might contribute. I'll find out later, when I do
my couch potato act.

Default Portion control - corn tortilla chips

I eat corn tortilias 1 ounce weighed on a digi food scale every so often
with beef and cheese and fresh made salsa on a treat day or with guac.

If they are made the old fashioned way they dont budge my meter ..if they
are made with flour and no pre soaking of the corn in acid..i get the
spike...so i make sure the kind i get.

i LIBERALLY apply the guacamole or salsa to the tortilla chip, and limit
the # of tortilla chips that i have

Ever try just cucumber slices of baby carrots with teh guacamole? I just
can't afford to have any tortilla chips or potatochips (crisps) around as
it is too easy to loose control.

If I can control Italian pastas, I can control anything! Even baby carrots
bite me, but the cucumber slices sound good. Thanks, Wendy.

Interesting. The only two foods that do that for me are bread or raw
carrots on an empty stomach. I don't know that I have a hernia though. And
my mom is the same way as is my daughter.

Why haven't you had that hernia repaired, Jacquie?

They don't repair them unless the meds they give you for reflux don't
work...or it is causing some other physical problem. I have a big scar
around that area and down the right side. I think if they went in they would
probably find all kinds of trouble. I think I might have a small hernia in
the muscle part that was stitched and stapled, because I can feel a hard
knot and it gets larger from time to time, where they cut the muscle to get
to my adrenal gland. Mine hiatal hernia is small... anyways that's what the
girl with a strong Asian Accent told me. I need to make an appointment to
see a Dr..... Mine has been sent to another base so I have to break in a new
one
