Buttermilk Ranch Powder, Light Mayonnaise, and 2% Milk make a low fat low calorie ranch dressing. You can make it to suit yourself. You could even use skim milk. The packet calls for buttermilk and mayonnaise...I substituted the butter milk for 2% and the mayonnaise for Light Mayo.
I love Ranch Dressing and I like Italian, but neither of the two are low calorie. So I came up with the idea to make my own ranch dressing and splurge once in a while on Italian.
1/2 the Calories & Fat - All the Flavor: Hellmann's Olive Oil Mayonnaise
Hellmann's Mayonnaise Dressing made with Extra Virgin Olive Oil contains just half the calories and fat of the Regular Hellmann's Mayonnaise - and ALL the flavor. And it's made from Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Soybean Oil. Personally, I think it tastes way better than the "light" or "fat free" versions of mayonnaise! 1 Tablespoon is 50 calories, 5 grams of fat, 5 mg cholesterol, 120 mg sodium and less than a gram of carbohydrate.
I found that buying food with less calories helps me lose weight. Here are some examples: butter spray such as Parkey, I Can't Believe It's Not Butter have zero calories, using Fat Free Kraft mayonnaise has 10 cal/serving, 12 grain light bread has 40/cal per serv, mustard has zero cal, skim milk has 90/serv, egg beaters has 30 cal/serv and 80 cal yogurt helps to. Plus I am starting to eat a good variety of fruits & vegetables which are full of fiber and help keep me full.
Tricking your mind is a good way of helping you lose weight. I feel that I am eating regular calorie food and ever since I have lost 47 lbs, I am not as hungry as I used to be and I have gotten off caffeine & drink a lot of water. I hoped I helped someone with this information.
