    Franks hot sauce (varies in heat depending on which you choose) tastes great and low sodium also.

    Helmans lighter than light mayonnaise.

    They're my two go to sauces when cutting.

    I even like it on broccoli, broccoli is my go to veg to bulk out my meals when cutting as it's basically just fibre. Tastes alright too.

    Don't use that artificial poison called walden farms!
    If it's loaded with artificial stuff stay away!
    There is a lot to be said for learning how to eat relatively plain foods! Once you're used to it then any little change you will make is awesome!

    Example: Take your diet foods and add nothing to any of the meals besides some sea salt for 2 weeks. At that point start adding in salsa, hot sauce, mustard, ketchup and so on. It will taste AWESOME!

    You can also look for diabetic friendly sauces (usually has a label that says so).
    I use a couple that are ultra low in calories (10-20 calories for a big serving) and they use splenda as a sweetener as sugar is a no go.

    Don't be fooled into crap like "carb reduced ketchup", that's just watered down regular ketchup!
    Use ketchup just measure it out properly.
    "30 calories per meal" is my rule of thumb for clients starting out that then drops to 20 calories per serving if fat loss slows (at this point every calorie counts and if we can cut out an easy 50 calories we do so!)
    Then at the end of the diet 10 calories per meal is the limit but for that you can still use some extra spicy salsa as an example!

    I've been using the choulula chipotle sauce. Tastes good and only need a few shakes of it.

    Soy sauce is another option, just gotta bare in mind the sodium content.

    Cheers con reading the walden sauces didn't really sit well with me seemed to good to be true but after looking on there website it says that it can be basically classed as cal free if under certain amounts so basically a marketing ploy and contains a fair few E numbers too. Will take a look tommorow in the 'free from' aisle :thumb:
