  • Hot dog: conventional hot dogs are high in fat (13 grams or more per serving), they are filled with sodium and contain virtually no protein or no nutrients. Add to this the buns made with white flour, starchy, high-calorie dressings and sauces.

Cheese and Chile in this case, only aggravate the situation. You do not ever watch the preparation of a hot dog? Well, if you had a similar experience, we would immediately switched to nuts, prudently put up in bags.

Mayonnaise is good on a sandwich with meat turkey - who argues - but just one tablespoon of mayonnaise contains 12 grams of fat and 110 calories, so hurry to get rid of your favorite sandwich. Replace mayonnaise with mustard.
