Calories & Condiments - Where The Fat Is Hiding?

ORLANDO, Fla. (Ivanhoe Newswire) --The holiday season is in full swing, meaning most diets have come to a screeching halt. But if you’re loading your meals with condiments, you could be packing in more calories than you realize.

Condiments add flavor to almost any meal. However, some are secretly adding major calories to your diet.

“If we’re doing that over a couple of months, it can make a really big impact,” Holly Pudwill a nutritionist told Ivanhoe.

So say bye-bye to mayo! While it goes on anything just two tablespoons is equal to a whole Krispy Kreme donut! Try mustard or hummus instead. You keep the taste, with just a fraction of the calories. Are you ready to trade your kettle bell for jingle bells? Then stay away from tartar sauce. Seafood might be good for you, but not when it’s loaded with hidden calories. Just a mere two tablespoons of this delicious treat has 80 calories. Try replacing tartar sauce with lemon juice and garlic.

So which condiments can you indulge in as often as you'd like? Pesto, hot sauce, and salsa. Pesto has healthy fat and plenty of antioxidants. Salsa is low in sodium and two tablespoons has only 10 calories. Hot sauce has zero calories! It can also help curb your appetite. Spicing up your meal without adding on the pounds.

Another tip, when in doubt, skip the condiments and use olive oil, garlic, fresh fruits and spices to flavor your food instead.
