What It Takes to Burn Off a Tablespoon of Mayo
Mayo is an extra that we don't often consider when we're tallying up our calories at the end of the day. But if you're downing five sandwiches a week from the local deli — well, if each has even a bit of mayonnaise, you're racking up the extra calories.
1 tablespoon of mayonnaise: 110 calories
