Ditch Mayonnaise and Lose 7 Pounds

However, while mayonnaise may taste great, it is generally not a great condiment to add to your diet if you are working to eat healthy and lose weight.

When working on weight loss we are often told to avoid all creamy sauces and condiments.

But, you ask, “Mayonnaise is just eggs and oil, right?”

We know eggs and some oils are considered healthy foods in moderation, so why then is mayo on the do not eat list for weight loss?

All about the Calories

One tablespoon of mayonnaise = 90 calories and 10 grams of fat!

If you typically use mayonnaise on your sandwich everyday, and you cut that out, you could save yourself about 7 pounds this year!

Inflammatory Ingredients

The number one ingredient in most mayonnaise jars is soybean oil. This type of vegetable oil is an unsaturated fat, but it is also an omega-6 fat which can be pro-inflammatory.

It is important to limit specific plant oils like soybean oil, cottonseed oil, sunflower oil, safflower oil, and corn oil in order to reduce body inflammation and to improve health.

Which Brand of Mayonnaise is OK to Buy:
  • Reduced Fat Hellman’s with Olive Oil: Adding in some heart healthy olive oil will help to improve the quality of the fat source.
  • Hellman’s Canola Oil: Contains more monounsaturated fats (aka heart healthy fats) as well.
  • Kraft Mayo with Olive Oil: Blend of soybean, olive, and canola oils, and only 45 calories per tablespoon.
  • Organic Original Vegenaise: Made for vegans with canola oil (no eggs), and is organic!
  • Smart Balance Light Mayonnaise: Made with canola, soy, flaxseed, and olive oil, and contains plant sterols for heat health. The downside is that it does contain a few preservatives.

Bottom Line

Follow these suggestions to help cut down on your mayo consumption.
  • Feel free to still use mayonnaise in some home cooking, but I would go light on the mayonnaise-based foods at restaurants.
  • Use mustards or pepper sauces on sandwiches.
  • For a creamy spread, combine avocado, sea salt, and some vinegar to spread on your sandwich.
  • Avoid cold mayonnaise-based salads which tend to be the highest calorie dishes on the menu.
  • Buy a mayonnaise with olive oil for home use and you will be all set!
  • Make your own mayo with olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and farm fresh eggs.
