List of Low-Calories & High-Calorie Condiments

Condiments are typically very calorie dense.

Many people are getting what we call "sneaky calories" from condiments.

Usually, it is a problem of large serving sizes combined with not realizing how many calories they're consuming.

For example, in a standard serving size of sauce on a 6 inch sub from will typically have 40-100 calories.

Or just 1 tablespoon of ranch salad dressing will typically have around 60-100 calories.  And most people are using far more than a table spoon.

The key to condiments and weight loss is to make sure that you are not increasing your calorie intake from the condiments (or almost zero increase in calories).  

Or if you are increasing your calorie consumption from condiments make sure that it is part of your plan.

Here are different calorie counts for some popular condiments. Note, that the calories can vary massively from one brand to another.
