“Can I eat organic, no sugar potato chips, and organic, no sugar corn chips?”
That was a question from one of my viewers. The answer, of course, is sure you can. You can eat whatever you want. You can eat all sugar potato chips or no sugar potato chips.
But my question is, why would you want to eat no sugar, organic potato chips? And, I have the same question about corn chips.
Sure, chips can be a tasty snack, but they’re junk food. They aren’t going to do your weight any favors. To me, it’s like saying, “Can we go to the casino if I put my sunglasses on, so I don’t know what I’m doing? I could put the money in the slot, and someone could cover my eyes.” That would be crazy.
I think it’s just as crazy to try and restore your gut health while eating junk food. And that includes so-called “healthy” junk food that uses Stevia instead of sugar. Pop is still pop as far as I’m concerned.
Whether potato chips contain sugar or not, they’re still high in bad fats. Chips are also often high in sodium.

Don’t get me wrong, I love potato chips. I could eat a bag a day, but I consciously chose to eat in a way that keeps me healthy.
If you’re looking for a crunchy snack, popcorn popped in extra virgin olive oil is a better option. So is a small handful of nuts. Even whole-grain crackers are a better option than chips.
I don’t believe in dietary perfection. You’ll survive if you have a handful of chips on a rare occasion. But if you want real gut recovery, don’t make them a regular part of your diet.
