Carb-Check Diet: Snacking on a bratwurst is better than snacking on chips

By Mike Thayer

20161208_225811Eating chips means eating carbs and those kind of carbs are a bad thing.

Eat a bratwurst or a hot dog instead.

Eating a brat has about the same amount of fat as the chips do.  Yes, really.  A brat also puts twice the proteins in your body and it's a snack that will stay with you longer and won't drive your blood sugar up like chip carbs will.   In other words, a brat is better for your body's metabolism. 

Here's the breakdown:  A 2 ounce serving of Nacho Cheese Doritos have about 280 calories, 16 grams of fat, 32 carbs and 4 grams of protein.  A brat, which typically run at about 2.3 ounces, has about 200 calories, 17 grams of fat, 1 carb and 8 grams of protein.

A brat has fewer calories, more protein and most importantly, far less carbs.

And then there's the Bachelor on the Cheap wallet friendly cost factor...  Cost of a small snack bag of Doritos - 47¢.  Cost of a brat - 80¢.   You'll be reaching for something else to snack on to tide you over if you went with the chips.  No so with the brat, the proteins keep you fuller, longer.
