Can Ketchup Make you Fat??

Apparently yes. According to this article:, the more condiments you use the more you eat.

According to the piece:

"In the study of college students, when they added things like ketchup to fries and whipped cream to brownies, they ate between 25-40 percent more of the item."

I'm always leery about going whole hog on the condiments because they generally contain all kinds of artificial crap, like corn syrup. But even I can't resist sneaking a couple of fries, with Ketchup, from my kids' plates when we go out to eat.

So, if you want to have your brownie and diet too, here's a good tip from the article:

"In general, a solid tip is to use about a teaspoon of a condiment, and when possible, serve it on the side and dip your fork in before each bite. You’ll be surprised to see how much less you consume."
