    Love mayo but it's calorific per tbsp.

    Make it fit in your cals and enjoy :smile: the full fat mayos and salad creams are superior to those lighter ones imo - same goes for butter over margarine, no comparison.

    I would go for it if you like mayo. But I think you could maybe make egg salad with mustard (I had some not that long ago, pretty good) but I don't have a specific recipe I can recommend.

    I think mayo is gross - miracle whip for me! But if you like it and it fits your calories then enjoy. You could always use less. Or use mustard or avocado or even yogurt instead.

    I like both actually, but I'm watching my carbs and mayo has less carbs...lol... but I'm making it by serving actually for me...lol so I know how many calories there are... I usually do weigh my food....lmao only time I can't if I go to restaurants....

    I'm actually sitting here in front of mayo and Miracle Whip reading the ingredients... I would have gotten light but this is before my diet... I've only been on it for 3 weeks almost lol... and all I did was buy yogurt fruit smoothies and Recovery drinks for after workout... I did get lite ranch and I love ranch but too much fat... I call it the fat people's dressing when I go out lmao

    If you're limiting your carbohydrates, there isn't a need to limit your fat too. A low carbohydrate diet is often going to be higher in fat and that's okay.

    Finally, a spot-reducing exercise ("lmao") -- unfortunately, not the spot I most want to reduce. :'(

    I personally love mayo and I tend to use too much - but here's what I did today for my tuna salad. 1 tbs mayo, 1 tbs non-fat Greek yogurt and 2 tsp. Dijon mustard. It was delish!

    I use half mayo or mashed up avocado and some dijon mustard and if it's still too dry I'll use wome FF miracle whip. I'll put anything in a tuna or egg salad tbh lol

    I use half greek yogurt at least. Get the creaminess and still some flavor with a lot less calories. I will also add some fresh herbs. For me mayo is more a texture thing anyway and greek yogurt is a good substitute that way

    Nothing wrong with a little mayo although there are some substitutions. I just got some mayo made with avacado oil, and it's really good. Just measure out how much you're using to make sure you're counting the calories correctly.

    I love mayo, but I have also discovered that using avocado instead is pretty tasty! :)

    Mayo with eggs? Yuk.
    But then, I'm not a big fan of mayo at the best of times.
