Q. I love creamy sauces and, even though I want to lose weight, I find it hard to resist when eating out. Will this slow down my weight loss?
Ans. To reduce your body fat in a healthy way, you need to reduce your calorie and fat intake. So, the short answer is yes, the creamy sauces will slow down your weight loss.
If you are serious about losing weight, you should try getting into the habit of enjoying the natural flavours of food rather then covering them in fat.
If you must have sauce, then ask for it to be served “on the side” and add just a little to your food.
Be aware that just 1/4 cup of Alfredo, bearnaise or hollandaise sauce contain nearly 20g of fat.
