Every week I answer a question or questions that are sent in to me regarding fat burning, weight loss, diet, fitness and or the Fat X program. Today's question was a comment responding to last weeks Q & A.
Are you using any salad dressing and if so what kind ?
Thank you for this question. It actually reminds me of an issue that I had with a client a while back. The first month or so she was with me her results were great, but then she hit an unexpected plateau. It was really boggling because of the fact that when I looked at her food log, everything looked fine.
As I studied her food log a little closer I noticed she was having a salad for lunch almost every day. I questioned her about the salad and she told me that it was the one from McDonalds that she would have for lunch. At that point I realized that I had not gone over with her the issue of dressing. She was inputting the salad in her food journal, but she wasn’t including the dressing. The dressing she was using on her salad had about 20 grams of fat. After I had her replace the dressing, her weight loss picked up and she dropped another dress size within a couple of weeks.
So anyway, back to your question. When it comes to dressing you have to keep in mind that they are normally high calorie low nutrition foods, so you either have to use them in small amounts and/ or use lemon juice or a vinaigrette to flavor your salads.
