    I love using nonstick sprays in skillets for my eggs and in baking pans but techincally, nothing actually has zero calories. You have to be very careful of the claims these companies make. Technically Pam does have calories (any food where oil is an ingredient will) but it's so few per serving that they can actually get away with listing it as being "0 calories per serving" (key words here being PER SERVING) Make sure you know how much 1 serving actually is. 1/3 of a second long spray of PAM is considered 1 serving and counts as 0 calories, but if you use a 1 second long spray, then it's 7 calories. 6 seconds ends up equalling the same amount of calories that are in 1 teaspoon of oil.

    So while nonstick sprays are great and will probably save you a bunch of calories opposed to using oil straight from a bottle, just make sure you read the labels carefully and are being mindful of how much you're actually using. Chances are if there's a claim that sounds too good to be true, then it probably is :-/
