Mayo Lovers Be aware
This creamy addition to many culinary concoctions, such as on a sandwich, in a dipping sauce or mixed up in egg or chicken salad, is often overlooked as extra calories.
What to do
Here’s the deal. You can either burn off mayo with exercise or switch to mustard. You can also switch to mustard and still get exercise and be that much farther ahead.
If you still don’t know what to do, imagine eating a tablespoon of mayo every day– 770 mayo-filled calories in a week. If that is your mode of eating, then consider switching to mustard at least half the time and add aerobic exercise to your day.
Next time you dip into some mayo, picture yourself exercising and ask yourself if it is worth it. Then ask yourself if you will really do the exercise needed to burn it off. If the answer isn’t an immediate and truthful YES, then switch to mustard, 1/4 avocado, olive oil or nothing at all. Know that if you are going to eat calories, you will feel best if you make them nutritious or low calorie ones.
