    I don't even understand the issue with potato chips. Any bag I look at doesn't have much saturated fat. Get more from milk, but I'm pretty sure potato chips are slammed harder than milk. Maybe there's some really gunky brand out there that's bad? But the popular one, Lays I just looked up... 1.5 grams saturated fat in a serving. Unless we've started bashing poly/monounsaturated fat? o.O It's just a mystery to me. It's like bashing peanut butter. Look at the amounts of fats in a bag of chips vs peanut butter.

    Rhett: "Why is it so good?" Well...when we eat potato chips, our brain sends out positive endorphins that make us like them and makes junk food like chips almost like a drug. Why? Well, we are evolved to live in the ancestral environment (thousands of years ago). We are not evolved to having food readily available to us so our body craves foods with high fat, calorie, and sugar content. This is what we needed to survive long ago because we could eat less food, and it would keep us going for a long period of time.

    i.. actually enjoy baked lays especially with dip because they are thicker and don’t break as easy
