Does anyone know what the real calories are in cooking sprays? I know there has to be an evil truth hiding behind the label, which says it's a completely innocent alternative to butter or oil, but only if you use a spray that lasts ONE THIRD OF A SECOND!

I don't think any of us use only a 1/3 second spray in the pan if we're preparing eggs or veggies or whatever. It's more like a couple of seconds, I'd guess.

Anyone?

I saw this too:

12.5 sprays (2.5 grams) = 10 calories; 1 fat gram
25 sprays (5.0 grams) = 20 calories; 2 fat grams
27.5 sprays (7.5 grams) = 30 calories; 3 fat grams

24 sprays or 1 teaspoon = 17 calories; 1.9 fat grams
72 sprays or 1 tablespoon = 52 calories; 5.8 fat grams

olive oil is full of good fat. Yes it has calories, but in moderation it is good for you and your diet. Don't cut out too much fat! No need.

Just sayin Smile

I agree with k8yk. About 1/4 tbsp of EVOO (hehe) and a good non-stick pan goes a long way! Not to mention, awesome flavor as a bonus.

Are you drinking enough water? How is your salt consumption? When I crave sweets I drink a glass of water and if still craving I eat a pickle. Usually does the trick. If not I eat a few pieces of fruit.
