Salad Dressing is Trying to Make my Butt Big!

Salad Dressing Trying to Make my Butt Big!

With summer here, even before my detox, I was choosing more salads for lunch. I have my eye on a certain bikini and want to really work on cutting down on calories. Hooray for salads. They are yummy, you can add many of your favorite veggies and they make you feel lighter after eating one. Happy Happy Joy Joy. Then I glanced at the back of my salad dressing packet.

Here is the bad news…depending upon your choice of salad dressing, your salad can contain more calories than a big ol’ nasty yummy Big Mac.

A few of those so called healthy salad dressings can contain double the amount of calories of your actual salad. The problem is that most of the dressings – even those that sound healthy – are loaded with calories and fat.

The list below is based on the standard sized portion of salad dressing you get at a restaurant.
