    The concept of the Fat Tooth http://www.webmd.com/food-recipes/features/got-a-fat-tooth is gaining greater acceptance and I for one can attest to it (potato chips are my Achilles Heel).

    For those of you with a fat tooth what do you eat to stave off your fat cravings?

    I have a terrible sweet tooth and have recently cut chocolate out of my diet. However it has left me with a severe case of the munchies. As a result I have stuck to chewing on gum, baked crackers, rice crackers and dried fruit.

    Yes. It's my only weakness besides neurotic men. I hate sweets and can totally live without carbs. However, I love things like sausage, cheese, etc. Nothing fried, though. Fried foods make me ill.

    Dumbest shit I've heard all day. Fat is a natural part of real food.

    What you crave is salt from your potato chips. In my experience the slogans are right, "Once you pop, you can't stop" and "You can never just have one". You are better off never buying them and never eating them. If you want more arguments against them there was this case where there was worry that some construction workers had been exposed to dangerous levels of acrylamide (cancinogen). And they found very high levels of acrylamide in the presumed exposed construction workers but also in the controls. And they narrowed it down to eating potato chips. And nobody has ever tested potato chips to find out what other compounds are created during production.

    Unhealthy carbs and fats are my downfall, what I use to stave them off is berries, almond butter and raw veggies with non-/low-fat dressing.

    When I read the thread title, I thought you meant "do you have a tooth that is fatter than it should be?"

    I was raised on everything non-fat. By the time I was 20 my cholesterol was so abnormally low I was at high risk for suicide.

    This article is stupid, our body craves fat for a reason BECAUSE IT NEEDS IT. Just like our body craves carbs when we're not getting enough. I don't understand giving the body's natural way of functioning some bizarre special label. I don't stave off my fat cravings because my diet is high fat(mono and sat). I don't really get cravings for much else.

    Blech I can't stand this mentality that just because I'm not afraid to up my fat intake means I'm just looking for an excuse to justify my "bad behavior" and "lack of discipline" icon_rolleyes.gif I've done my research on fats, I believe a higher fat intake is a good decision.

    With a metabolism like yours -- unless there's a typo in your stats -- I'd say you made the right call.

    I make a point of including healthy fats in my diet, but when I get -- and give in to -- a serious craving it tends to be those roasted lime chile-flavored almonds. Definitely the saltiness is a huge part of the craving. Same with the Cajun-spice fries at my favorite burger joint, but if I eat those it's usually on a cheat day anyway.

    I agree that giving in to fat cravings is pretty benign compared to giving in to sugar cravings.

    Anyone currently versed in contemporary nutrition should know they need to consume dietary fat. Especially for weight loss. A zero fat diet is the fastest way to over consume calories and not only not lose body fat but gain it. Dietary fat and body fat are different things, people.

    Fatty fried foods are my vice. Jack in the Box tacos are my favorite - it's a good thing there aren't any for hundreds of miles from where I live.

    When I have the fried snack food urge, I sometimes try to keep the cravings at bay with a small amount of hard cheese and some raw veggies. Or a small handful of walnuts. Sometimes I just give in.icon_wink.gif
