Are tortilla chips really that bad?

I realize they are fried in oil...... and the only other ingredient is stone ground corn, at least the ones that I have on hand.  So that being said if you need a salty snack is a couple of them that bad for you?

How far out are you? If you are a new post op you will set yourself up for failure. Try this if you really need salty crunchy snacks. Get a package of pepperonis and nuke them for a minute. oak the grease up with a paper towel. They give you ev erything you need..and have protein.

You know, I never was a chip fan pre-op, but now I've been eating 1-2 tortilla chips every third day or so. . .and my nut hasn't said anything about it.

I figure I need the carbs, and apparently, my body wants the carbs and salt for some reason, and one or two chips every few days isn't ODing on them or anything.

ETA: But I'm further out than you.

I know I'm not that far out, and it's not like I eat them all the time.  I had them with salsa, and they were so goooooood
Pre-op I was not able to tolerate many foods, I usually would try to eat things like salsa and get very sick, stomach pains and diarrhea the whole shebang. So now being able to tolerate these foods I thought corn tortilla chips ( 1 or 2 would be bad with lots a salsa)

We made our own tortilla chips. We buy the corn tortillas and they are usually refrigerated and they are designed to be fried but we bake them. Barely any fat in them but I dont have the stats right here...hmmm, but I do on my Spark People page, I will post them. Basically we cut them into strips, put them on the oven rack and baked them up. Tasty, not fried and helped with the crunch factor. Just do what you do with other food, measure out a serving, half serving, whatever to eat and dont go back for seconds.

 Id say stay away from tortilla chips.  They are a trigger for almost everyone - a few turns into a handful turns into a bowl full.

My gastric sleeve surgery was August 23, 2013. Lately, I really crave tortilla chips! I find I can eat way too many of them! I have to get them out of my house tomorrow! 

I am currently experiencing a stall. I've only lost about 7 pounds in the past 30-days.

Do you realize you have responded to a post that is almost 5 years old? The original poster has not posted anything since 2009.
