Hello all...im new to the board and im amazed at all the info on here. Over the past few weeks i've been bouncing around looking at all the different forums gathering new info. I couldn't find the info i was looking for on condiments. So i'll ask the pros,what is your feeling on the use them and/or what would you suggest to use or stay away from on a cutting cyle...thanks

Look at the ingredients and calorie content on the container. Mustard and ketchup are practically nothing, while mayo is high in unhealthy fat. In moderation these won't inhibit your fat loss, but they aren't necessarily good for you.

ketchup is a great source of lycopene which is a strong antioxidant...go with the ketchup!

Ketchup is also high in salt.
I use lots of things like herbs, spices, and garlic. It can add a ton of flavor to something that is otherwise bland (like canned tuna, or chicken breast) and it doesn't add any calories.

I love Tabasco Chipotle sauce - less than one gram of carbs per teaspoon, and you only need a little to make your eyes watery and your taste buds tingle.

good thread topic
make your own condiments - then you can control what's in it, and bypass all those arsehole-cancer causing preservatives.
Favourites are chilli ginger garlic pepper as basics for marinades and dressings. You can throw in cold-pressed olive oil, low-sodium soy sauce - you get the picture.

How about "fat free" mayo?

I would rather have the fat than the preservatives
