Sometimes I go the odd packet of chips - I am not good but I will not worry about it as long as my weight stays between 70 & 80 kg. If I do go above 80kg I just force myself to stay above 30km/h on the shared path all the time on the way home and watch the snacks I eat. Presto 3 weeks later I am back where I should be - keep going one more week because fast is fun and then usually stuff up again.
It also only seems to happen this time of the year.

The simplest method is to base your intake on a standard 'calories per unit of weight (usually kilograms)'. Typically:
- 26 to 30 kcals/kg/day for normal, healthy individuals with sedentary lifestyles doing little physical activity [12.0-14 kcal/pound]
I am a male, 87kg, 20% bodyfat. BMR is ~1800 Cals, TDEE = 2300. 30 * 87 = 2610 Cals.
That 300 Calorie overestimate is going to see me with 14kg extra fat at the end of a year.
For an 87kg 'normal' woman, BMR = 1650Cals and TDEE = 2100 Cals. So they'll be 23kg heavier at the end of the year.

I used to do this, eat the little snack size ones in the afternoon, until I started taking more notice of the Nutritional section on the back.
Most I find are at least 30% fat so I now avoid them completely
