I wanted to compare the nutritional analysis of the FAT FREE DUKE'S MAYONNAISE, versus the REGULAR DUKES MAYONNAISE. My conclusion, I suppose it is what nutrients are most important to you, because you just can't have both. The recipe I used was making 24 servings, and it needed 2 cups of mayonnaise, I compared the calories and nutrients with both, and boy was I surprised.
If you are watching calories, I suppose the FAT FREE VERSION MIGHT BE BETTER, but if you are counting carbs then the regular version might be better.
FAT FREE VERSION- Calories in 2 cups= 480,CARBS= 96,FAT=0, SODIUM-5,760 & SUGAR 32 GRAMS
REGULAR VERSION-Calories= 3200 in 2 cups-CARBS=0 FAT=384- SODIUM 2,400 Mg, & SUGAR=0
MY CONCLUSION- You just can't win, you either go low fat, and it is loaded with more than twice as much salt, carbs and sugar, or you COUNT CARBS WHERE IT DOES HAVE A SIGNIFICANT amount of calories & fat, but no sugar or carbs, and the SODIUM IS 3,360 Mg. LESS than the FAT FREE version.
NO wonder MANY OF US have a weight problem? You either must do low calorie, or low carbs, which ever is best for you. There is a lot to understand before you can successfully do either. It was just a revelation and I was shocked at the results, thought you might be too.
This is a picture of the salad I created, and if you are counting carbs it is great because it only has 4 NET CARBS, 1 GRAM OF SUGAR, AND 2 GRAMS OF FIBER, BUT IF YOU ARE GOING WITH low fat or fat free, then it is loaded with fat, sodium & carbs. SO YOU MUST CHOOSE.
I WOULD LOVE TO HEAR YOUR OPINION ON WHAT HAS BEEN WORKING FOR YOU. I AM DOING LOW CARB, & SO FAR I HAVE LOST MORE THAN 20 POUNDS IN THE LAST 2 MONTHS & A FEW DAYS.

I have said all of that to say this. Last night after consulting with my doctor, she informed me that with blood sugars ranging from 88 to 93, that I did not need to take my INSULIN. WOW, that is the first time I have not had to take insulin in almost 5 years. All because I started making healthier choices in the foods I eat. I am loving the results, she said she will continue to monitor me, and hopefully if I continue, I just may be able to get off of it for good. But for now we will check it on a daily basis. I AM OVER THE MOON EXCITED.
I just had to share this great news with you.

Hope everyone is well! Bea, are you still here? Hope to hear from some of you. Life's been crazy the last year. Severe illness in my family on many different fronts, among other things. I've missed you all!
