Using low carb dressings is a great way to cut back on your carbs. With dressings, you can hardly notice the lack of carbs. When it comes to low fat or fat free dressings, the taste begins to suffer. When you go out to eat, you might want to bring a small bottle of your favorite low carb dressing. Restaurants tend to offer low fat more than low carbohydrate dressings.

Various Low Carb Dressings

Low carb dressings aren't just salad dressings. This includes toppings and condiments such as BBQ sauce, syrup, and dessert dressings. You can get low carb versions of everything. You have to check the labels, though. Some will add more fat to make up for the carbs. Some diets tell you that this is fine. If you are sticking to a particular diet, then do what they say.

However, if you are just choosing to have a healthier lifestyle on your own by eating less carbs, see what ingredients have been added to make up for taste. If it's fat, you might want to go with the regular version of the dressing. With low carb dressings, it's up to you. You can also try ordering dressings from diet programs that deal with low carb diets, like Atkins or South Beach.

One of the great things about dressings low in carbohydrates is that you can find them in so many of your favorite flavors. You can find ranch, thousand island, Italian, honey mustard and bleu cheese to name a few. For more varied flavors, try a healthy grocery store. They'll offer more low carb choices for dressings than you'll know what to do with. You may discover a new love for salads!
