Mayo & Weight Loss

The calorie and fat content of regular mayo is too high for most dieters. A sensible daily fat quota for a 1200 calorie diet is about 30g/day.

So 1 tbsp mayo used up about 40 per cent of your fat allowance.

If you adore mayo but want to lose weight, choose a low fat variety.
But go easy.
