Why do FRIES taste so Good?

okay Its 10 am In India, Delhi and i've dropped in from New York to do an interview with Dr. Smith. The Professor of Low-carb diet. Ahead of me i can see the golden arches of a McDonald's Flashing into my field of vision like a warning sign! FRIES!!! Not good. I'd only eat them and feel empty afterwards. Yes do you know carbohydrates snacks make you hungry more!. Eat one and you want another. Successful products are the ones that do not satisfy. Fries have a glycaemic indesx which raises your blood sugar so fast. Besides I am on day one of a diet and this time the low-carb way of life will make me slim again. And now i am walking under the golden arches. A larger man, obese angels towards me and we collide, two big trucks touching bumpers. I move towards the counter with an automatic, jerky gait. I look at the guy behind the counter in a cheerful apron and I say "FRIES" and i say "LARGE" I know i shouldn't but it's suddenly too late. The smiling young man takes my money and hands me my order LARGE FRIES

I could happily live the rest of my life without ever eating 'fries' again. Here in the UK, we have 'proper' chips - not potato chips but chips that are deep fried but much thicker and tastier than those skinny little cardboard fries McDonald's serve up. They are of course, still high-carb and high-fat but oh, so much tastier and not automatically covered in enough salt to rocket your blood pressure. In our 'chippie's' you get to choose whether you have salt (I dont) and/or vinegar (I do...loads!) They are more filling and satisfying than skinny fries!!I've only eaten 'chip-shop-chips' 3 times this year but I have enjoyed them and they are enough to make a main meal rather than just a fast-food snack.

Just make sure its a REAL chippie selling REAL chips! Usually fish & chips but you can have other stuff like sausages/chicken/meat pies etc & grab yourself a pickled egg to go with it. To satisfy the 'healthy-eating police' you could have mushy peas aswell (I'm not keen but they're quite popular) DISCLAIMER: obviously, dont eat them too often, I wouldn't want to be responsibly for raising your health risks!
