I just ate 1 packets of NIPS. A Malaysian product of chocolate coated peanut. Will I gain weight?

ALittleNipNow&Then??: Get another full package of NIPS and weigh it,then subtract the weight of the package and that will be exactly the weight you gained eating it. Now, get 352 full packs of NIPS and eat one a day for that year and then we'll have something to talk about. Another way to think about it is roughly (very roughly) 3500 calories to make a pound.

I am craving salt. I was actually eating a packet of it today while at work. What could cause this?

Cravings are also sometimes associated with anemia or low blood counts. Or it could mean something as simple as you like the taste of salt... ...Read more

When you've finished a months worth of amitriptiline are you supposed to have a week breAk before you start the next packet?

Some people may use amitriptyline for a short time, some people may use it every day for a year or longer, but people do not normally take a week long break after one month and then start again. An exception to this could be if the symptoms it was meant to treat disappeared. ...Read more

Is it ok to eat a packet of crisps and two chocolate bars every day if you are very active and have a good balanced diet besides that?

Is it ok to eat a packet of crisps and  two chocolate bars every day if you are very active and have a good balanced diet besides that?

Probably not: Those are not really very healthy forms of nutrition and do not have any nutritious value to your body but provide processed, pure calories. I suggest replacing them with complex carbohydrates or fruits/veggies as well as dark chocolate (>75%) for two reasons: getting some nutrition and anti-oxidants as well as lowering your blood sugar and Insulin in long term to avoid weight gain. ...Read more
