    Getting back to the original topic -
    You burn more calories in cold weather, so it's OK to eat a a little more over the winter.

    Weirdly if I add black olives I can do without dressing.

    I mostly don't want to though so I use some light or homemade ranch (greek yogurt + seasoning packet) or, if spinach, a raspberry vingar.

    I love olives on salad and often add them, but when I don't use them or anything else with fat I prefer to have at least a little olive oil in the dressing (mixed with vinegar), but will use less than with a traditional vinaigrette. If the salad is higher cal, I might cut cals in the dressing by using just vinegar and a spicy mustard. I like the mix of veg and at least a little dressing, however.

    ...I hadn't pinged that they're a fat source. Yeah that and the salt is likely why they make the salad a thing I can eat and enjoy without dressing. THANK YOU!

    Well. Shivering burns calories. That's not what anyone means though and most people dont' choose to stay long in any environment where they start shivering.

    Today she still has a lot of ranch, but she has cut her former drenching in half. And she's down over 30 pounds. Coincidence?

    In case you haven't tried: yogurt-based dressings are usually great substitutes for the cream-based dressings. They taste creamy and are half the calories. The one I like is 45 calories for 2 tablespoons. Maybe she'd like that? She could go back to her normal "drenching" with less calories. :smile:

    I really like Primal Kitchen dressings. They are avocado based so good on the healthy fats. The downside is that if you like to drench they are 120cals for 2tbs. The upside is, a little goes a long way. I only use 1tbs.

    Lol, it's funny when you read about people posting drinking ice cold water and taking cold showers to burn more calories. If you did both in a day, you MIGHT burn an extras 10 calories.

    Hey, 10 calories per day means a pound a year...
