MICHELLE COOPER: Next, we are going to talk about potato chips. When it comes to potato chips, they are not all created equal. And yes, you can have potato chips and have a healthy diet at the same time. What you want to look for are potato chips such as these that have a label that reads no transfat or 30% less fat. Traditionally, potato chips are fried potatoes. They actually have sodium added to them and other preservatives. When you get the modified kind that is lower in sodium and lower in fat, this can be part of a healthy diet as long as you do not go overboard. You need to pay attention to the label and read what its serving size is and make sure that you are not exceeding that. Some of the good versions are things like Baked Lay's or Baked Ruffles. I would not recommend getting the fat free that are made with olestra. There are some pretty nasty side effects associated with those. But the reduced fat or the baked versions are just fine. So remember, number one, do not exceed the serving size, because you are going to be getting more calories than you need. Number two, do not opt for the traditional potato chips. Get the ones that have the label that have smart choices, no transfat, lower fat. Or number three, find something that is baked or with a lower-fat version of the traditional product, and then you can incorporate chips as part of a healthy diet.
