5 Slathering Everything in Sauce
One of the biggest problems pro fitness model Lais DeLeon sees people making is neglecting to track the add-ons they use when preparing their meals. Long story short, condiments count!
“Dressings and sauces are full of hidden sugars and fats, so be sure to check them carefully,” she says. “You may have the best of intentions eating that salad and chicken breast, but if you slather it in a heaping of heavy dressing, it changes the nutritional value of the meal entirely.”
DeLeon recommends that you always ask for the sauces or dressing on the side and pick a lighter or sugar-free version whenever possible. “Try mustard, hot sauce, vinegar, or dry spices for added flavor without the calories,” she says.
