Guy's don't be quick to jump to conclusions without checking out the facts.
Taking a closer look at the nutritional info, surprisingly, pork Rinds would be OK for the slow carb diet. Actually, it's an ideal snack that is high in protein (more than peanuts) with zero carbs. The only negative I see is the sodium levels, but when you compare them to a serving of salt or soy sauce, both vetted by the book, the sodium level is low in comparison.
Here's the nutritional info for "Turkey Creek Snacks" HOT Chicharron Pork Skins (got them at my local Walgreens):
Serving Size: 1/2 Oz
Total Fat: 5g (less than all nuts)
Saturated Fat: 1.5g
Trans fat: 0G
Total Carbs / Sugar: 0G
Sodium: 220 mg (half of a single serving of salt, less than a quarter of a serving of soy sauce)
In a moment of weakness at the store, I picked up a bag... It's true what they say, don't go grocery shopping hungry.
The entire bag had about 850 calories--all of which I inhaled over the course of two days. I weigh myself every day and have not seen any ill-effects from such an indulgence.
That said, and as someone mentioned, they are a "domino food" for me... The salt revs up my appetite and I'm less satisfied after I've had a few. If you're contemplating incorporating this into your regular diet, be advised.
