One tablespoon of mayonnaise has 90 calories, and if that’s all you’re using, you’re making a relatively healthy choice. “It’s high in fat but not saturated fat. “The problem with regular mayonnaise is people cannot stick to one tablespoon and therefore they end up adding a lot of calories to a meal.”

Mayonnaise at restaurants, can get tricky, though. “If you’re going to order out something like a tuna fish salad or an egg salad or a chicken salad, chances are, you’re getting a lot of calories and a lot of fat.”

Still though, it’s a lesser of evils, “It’s good for your heart and is absolutely, head and shoulders above all the other kinds of fats that the restaurant industry is adding to foods like cheese and sour cream and cream cheese.”

Unlike many other foods marketed to dieters, low-fat mayo is actually a healthier choice.

Egg-free mayo is still high in calories: “Don’t be fooled because now all of a sudden it’s vegan. It’s still 48 calories per tablespoon.”
