Hi, I've been reading about this diet in the press recently & do like the sound of it ( I'm currently doing lipotrim) but I use 2 love mayonnaise, but when I did SW at new year I switched 2 low fat creme fraiche instead & now I won't touch mayo. Don't no if it's allowed on this diet but if it is defo worth a try x
Weight gain in regards to actual body fat is only gained if you consume more calories than you burn. If you eat more calories worth of mayonnaise than you can burn off in a day, you will gain weight. You can purchase lower calorie mayonnaise.
Most mayonnaise has a high saturated fat content. This does not mean it will cause you to become fat necessarily, but it can cause high cholesterol if you consume a lot on a regular basis.
I must admit to a bit of a cheat here on occasion. I have hellmans Mayo, the only thing I ever used to use. I water it down a bit either with water or lemon juice. Then make sure the salad is tossed properly.
I have done balsamic/mustard dressings and yogurt is a good replacement....with added herbs etc.
I've seen in recipes LF Sour Cream used, and on occasion i put mint and lemon juice into some to waterit down and then put that on salad.
