TOMATO KETCHUP

Is it ok to add a little tomato sauce (HP) to my food for flavoring when dieting ? I am not going for a show but have a bit of fat i need to get rid of.

    I thought HP sauce was v. high in sugar?
    There are 'reduced sugar' alternatives that (IMO) are just as nice. Not sure how much sugar is removed though...?

    When i cut i aim for 2000 calories in a day, if i can afford to have a dollop of ketchup i will, if not i won't. Its not hard and fast, depends on the rest of your diet. But empty calories like this are a waste tbh! You might as well have a piece of fruit instead which is much more likely to fill you up.

    If you like tomato sauce, a little bit to make bland food more palatable isn't going to make a huge difference unless you are being incredibly strict! I presume you won't be drowning you food in it? If you're worried about it maybe you could learn to make your own.

    I would leave out commercial tomato sauce on a diet, it's full of sugar.

    I cook a big pot of tomato sauce every weekend which I use for a multitude of purposes during the week. It's very versatile, can make italian pasta, chillis, curries etc. very easily.

    gently sautee diced red onions for 15 minutes in olive oil, add some crushed garlic, soften. Add 4 or 5 packs of tomato pieces(or several tins peeled tomatoes, cut them up with a big knife once in the pot), 1/2 ltr water, rock sea salt and fresh cracked pepper. Cover pot and gently simmer for 4 hours.

    Is this really a problem though - it's not like you eat it by the bowlfull!

    I quite often flavour tuna etc with ketchup - bad though.

    Think I'll start using tomatoes or something instead ... slightly less calories, more goodness and more filling.

    well to be honest with you, I eat LOTS of tomato sauce, home made.

    Ever since my dentist put a glass display in his waiting room with piles of sugar lumps beside various different food products, representing the sugar content, it gave me a shock. The Heinz Ketchup bottle had an ENORMOUS pyramid of lumps beside it...lol

    I would never dream of foregoing my ketchup - diet or no diet!

    Just don't go crazy with your dollops, and you'll be fine.
