How Condiments Make You Gain Weight

The Sneaky Calorie Bombs That Are Busting Your Diet

It may seem like a little mayo here and there isn't so bad, but the those dollops add up. In fact, just one tablespoon of mayo adds an extra 90 calories to your sandwich, and ketchup is full of added sugars. This printable poster is a reminder that every little bit helps when it comes to dropping pounds.

Instead of dousing your salad with dressing or slathering on the barbecue sauce, try asking for your condiments and dressings on the side so you know just how much of it you're eating. And when you're ordering a sandwich, save calories by substituting healthy options like avocado or hummus for fat-filled mayo. Remember that forgoing your favorite condiments doesn't have to mean that you're stuck with a flavorless chicken breast for dinner every night. Low-calorie, real-food options like a spritz of lemon juice, homemade salsa, or Dijon mustard add a lot of flavor without the calorie bomb. These healthy, low-calorie condiments should become a staple in your healthy pantry.
