Cheat With This: Pork Rinds

porkIt will eventually happen. You will cheat, no one is perfect. Diets tend to be difficult and appropriately so as your body is craving nutrients that you aren’t giving it due to the calorie deficit. If you are going to cheat you should at least minimize the damage to your fat loss goals.

First up in this segment are pork rinds. Pork rinds are basically deep fried pig skin (still hungry?) typically served at room temperature like potato chips. When at the grocery store you will probably see some brands with flavoring like spicy or bbq.

If you can it will benefit you to buy the “Baked” version which tend to cut out 35-40% of the total calories. And yes, there are no carbohydrates, but that doesn’t mean these are by any means healthy or “OK” to eat, but they are still better than a bowl of ice cream or bag of potato chips.

    Hmm. I have never had pork rinds. It just does not sound good.

    I’ll stick with beer and chocolate for my cheat meals, but thanks for the recommendation.

    Hey Nia, you don’t know what you are missing! Kevin is the man! I bought my first bag of pork rinds after listening to a previous episode of Kevin crunching into the mic with Jimmy Smith. It was hilarious, and you know what, those tasty little fat rings are worth their weight in gold. Thanks Kev!
