A Breakdown of Tiny Tastes

I'm a huge fan of enhancing my meals with a little somethin' somethin'. A slice of cheese here, a pat of butter there, a smear of peanut butter on that. It's just a little bit, so it can't really affect my diet, right?

Well, if you're trying to lose weight, cutting calories is the way to do it. If you're always adding and sprinkling and smearing extras onto your food, well all those little things could start to add up. I'm not saying you need to ditch the little pleasures of life, like a dollop of mayo, but here's a breakdown so you can add them up for yourself. It's just good to be conscious of what they're worth, instead of just pretending that they don't mean much.

That's so funny that you guys do the peanut butter thing - I do too! I've had to stop buying it for awhile, sadly :-(

I've lately been using an online diet website to keep track of my calories and it's really amazing how all the little things add up! It's helpful to see how condiments can add even more calories, even though I hate it! Also, a little peanut butter for a snack isn't a bad thing..as long as you don't eat tons of it! :)

Its unfortunate that I eat peanut butter not just as a spread, but I actually have it straight from the bowl with a spoon and get surely more than 2 tablespoons. Gotta kick that habit.

i feel like "1 pat" is a poor description of a serving of butter. its way too ambiguous, and lead someone to put one or two tablespoons worth of butter on their toast or vegetables and believe its only an extra 36 calories.

starlotus - thanks for catching that typo! 14g would have been outrageous for ketchup. That better be some fine tasting ketchup if it has THAT much fat. Ha!

Why make people who are already obsessed with calories freak out even more about it by putting together this chart? If I want to eat a tub of hummus, I am fine with the consequences.

Heinz Ketchup has 14 grams of fat? Is that a typo? I put ketchup on everything. :)
