Gaining weight can be sneaky business so why not fight back? These ten sneaky ways to cut calories can help you in the battle of the bulge and put you on course to a smaller waistline.
1. Cut the Condiments
If you are battling the bulge a change in condiments may be in order. Mayo packs a huge punch with 94 calories per tablespoon, and that’s IF you limit the condiment to one tablespoon. Creamy salad dressings are similar calorie wise. Katsup is full of sugar which packs on fat. Jams, jellies and preservatives also provide large amounts of insulin spiking sugar and should be avoided. Better choices are salsa, hot sauce, mustard, and chutneys. Even marinades and rubs add flavor without adding too many calories. Sometimes unsweetened applesauce can be used in place of jams or jellies. Even Guacamole and hummus, which have a bit more calories are more healthy and have less calories when compared to mayo and creamy dressings.
