Wow, no wonder America has an obesity problem. Mayonnaise is the #1 condiment by far!
The condiment market in USA is about $1,785 Million and of that, $977 Million are mayo products – 55%. I guess people dont think of it this way but mayo is about 80% fat, its like smearing lard on your burger.
One of the easiest ways to lose weight is the healthy substitution method. Take a few food items that you eat on a regular basis and substitute something healthier. This is a great example. Throw out your mayo and use ketchup or better yet, salsa instead! Its a minor change that can make the difference between gaining fat and losing fat.
