Hello, everyone
I'm a newbe and need your help.
What kind of mayonnaise do you use ? I can't find any without sugar.

I would definately be concerned about fat and calories as well. I say, ditch the mayo altogether. Even the low-fat and low-cal types have very little else to offer except empty calories. Try mustard instead or even a very light dressing mixed with herbs. Try grilling your sandwiches. This tends to make them a little moister so you don't need to add a dressing to it or use more juicy veggies like tomatos.

Some days I just need something on my sammie. Then, I use Krafts fat free ranch or fat-free zesty italian. They have no fat and 15 cal per serving (but you probably won't need a whole serving on your sammie!)

When I first started I was using lots of Fat-Free Miracle whip--I used it in all kinds of stuff--egg salad, chicken salad, cole slaw or whatever..I still use it from time to time but have found my need for it has really slowed..

BTW, the sugar is 2g in F-F Miracle Whip.

I'm sorry I should of told you that I was doing Atkins so the fat and calories are o.k I need to stay away from the sugar.

I use Hellmanns.... the carb count is 0 even though there is sugar in it. Never had a problem.

I also use Hellmann's or Kraft...yes, it does contain sugar...but, I've never been able to find a brand with no sugar. As far as fat...on Atkins, using full fat mayo is encouraged:carrot:

Hellman's here too! I don't worry about what little sugar is in it since we don't use enough of it in a given day to really be a concern.

you could also try marie's ceasar dressing ( appears to have alot less sugar than hellmans. This is the pourable one. The jar type I believe does not have any sugar in it.
