Most of us think that having a huge bowl of salad on a daily basis will help them to lose weight. Yes, you’re right! A bowl of greens is very low in calories and will provide you with all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals that your body needs.
BUT what you choose to dress your salad with can be a killer. It can turn a really healthy meal into a calorie bomb.

Those are sneaky calories and they are probably ruining your diet, without you realizing it.
