Skip or cut down on sauce during mealtimes and you could reduce your intake of calories significantly.

Most refined sauces contain loads of sugar, sweeteners, preservatives as well as artificial chemical flavorants.  Resist pouring a generous helping of sauce onto your food during mealtimes. Doing this can add hundreds of calories to your meal, especially if you are trying to reduce your calorie count.

Small serving

If you must have sauce, opt to use less. Cutting down gradually will help you to keep the calories down.

Read food labels

Be sure to read food labels when out grocery shopping. Compare the ingredients that are used in the manufacture of different sauces. If you are unable to prepare a fresh home-made sauce of your very own, buy one that is the best option for you.
