Hello fellow Sparkies! Something to try: instead of pouring your salad dressing on your salad, try pouring it into a different (smaller) container...when you go to eat your salad, dip your fork into the container with each bite. This way you are eating WAY less calories, fat, carbs...etc. because you aren't 'drowning' your salad in the dressing, but still getting the good taste with every bite :)

When eating out, I ask for the dressing on the side. When my salad arrives, rather than pouring the dressing over the salad, I dip each forkful of salad into the dressing. After I've eaten the salad, I usually have dressing left in the cup. Saves calories.
Instead of pouring salad dressing on your salad (and losing control of how much you are eating)...keep the dressing in a cup on the side and dip your fork into the dressing and then grab a forkful of your salad. A little dressing stays on the fork and is just enough to suit your tastebuds.4
