At first I switched mayo for a little olive oil. While tasty, it can be a bit dry. I use Chunk Light in Water, and when I open the can to drain it, I don't drain all the water out. I add my seasonings and mix with a fork, and it's just as moist and easy to spread as if using mayo!
If you find you left in too much water, just throw in a tablespoon of ground flax meal, or crumble a Saltine cracker or some oyster crackers to make it less watery.

Some vinegar in your diet may improve your blood sugar Nobumasa Ogawa, Ph.D., of Tokyo University in Tokyo, discovered that the acetic acid inhibits the activity of several carbohydrate-digesting enzymes, when vinegar is present in the intestines, some sugars and starches temporarily pass through without being digested, so they have less of an impact on blood sugar. Just two teaspoons of vinegar, taken with a meal, may help you keep better blood glucose control. See more info...
The easiest way to get the vinegar is by using an oil and vinegar salad dressing, vinaigrette dressings drizzled over steamed veggies, or whole wheat bread dipped in Olive Oil and vinegar
Take out the Mayo when making Tuna Salad. I simply add a can of tuna, mustard, and pickle relish. There's a ton of flavor without all those extra calories. Instead of bread I grab some Romaine Lettuce leaves and spread my tuna mix over it. It's delicious.
