Tweak of the Week!



“Think that a tuna sandwich is a light lunch? Think again. The average overstuffed tuna sandwich served in a restaurant contains over 700 calories and 43 grams of fat. The culprit? The mayo. Tuna fish packed in water has just 35 calories per ounce and is full of omega-3s, but mayonnaise has 100 calories per tablespoon.

Did you know you’re better off having a turkey or even a roast beef sandwich? Even chicken salad is better than tuna salad, because tuna is so fine there’s a lot more surface area for the mayonnaise to fill. Switch to balsamic vinegar, mustard, or Greek yogurt to save on more than half the calories and fat.”

Every tweak you make can add up to hundreds of calories per week! Every 3500 calories you cut from your weekly diet is one pound down on the scale. If tuna salad is part of your daily diet, this might be one little change that could mean big results!
