Potato Chips Increase Weight Gain


CoolSculpting Toronto patients beware: if your savoury snack of choice is potato chips, you may be setting yourself up for a bigger weight gain than if you were to snack on other foods, says a study conducted by Harvard researchers and published in the New England Journal of Medicine. The study found that daily consumption of potato chips, french fries and other potato products for that matter, resulted in a higher weight gain over the long term (specifically over four years). For potato chips, the increase was 1.69 pounds. Surprisingly, there was less weight gain associated with pastries and cookies.

Other foods that were found to increase weight gain are sugary drinks (e.g. fizzy drinks) and processed meats (i.e. deli meats)

On the other hand, daily servings of yogurt, nuts, fruit, and whole grains were found to contribute to a minor weight loss over the long term.
