The Not-So-Skinny On Salad Dressings  We should all be aware

 If you are counting a fat-

that the use of salad dressing must count as a free exchange. However, we at Herbal Magic continue to find clients omitting the use of salad dressing from their food journals. The following is a little food for thought.

free dressing as one of your “fats”, you are depriving your body of the positive fats that would be obtained by eating nuts, mayo, margarine, cooking oils etc.

 Counting salad dressing

mind. Do your weight loss journey a favour and know your foods!

 You need only read the label (and it is not just about the calorie count!). Salad dressings have additional carbohydrates (starches!), sugars and

 Can't I just use salad dressing as one of my fats? A common question! - There are a few different things we need to understand to answer this question. Your body needs fat for multiple heath reasons. But there are good fats and bad fats. Saturated, trans, and hydrogenated fats are the bad fats (these are the fats that harm your cardiovascular system and convert to fat in your body). Omega oils, for example, are good fats.

as a fat is also detrimental to your weight loss! Salad dressings are counted as a free exchange for a reason. The Free Exchange List has been created with the nutritional facts in

bad fats! Each day you add dressing that you’re not accounting for, you tack on the extras, which makes it harder for you body to shed the pounds.

 Take for example the

Oriental Sesame Dressing from Wendy’s: 170 calories, 10 g of fat, 1.5 g of saturated fat, 360 mg of sodium and 19 carbohydrates (that’s more starch than 2 slices of weight watchers bread!).

 Light vs. Fat-Free: what's the big deal? Many of us assume there is no difference between the two. However, after looking at labels shows a large difference to your daily intake. Calorie-Wise Ranch dressing by Kraft still has 70 calories, 6 grams of fat, 340 mg of sodium, 6 grams of carbohydrates and 4 grams of sugar. Keep in mind, this is only for 2 tablespoons worth of dressing!!
