What condiments and healthy fats can I have on the OPTAVIA program?

Condiment Recommendations

Use condiments to add flavor and zest to your meals, just remember that they contribute to overall carbohydrate intake. We recommend reading food labels for carbohydrate information and controlling condiment portions for optimal results. A condiment serving should contain no more than 1 gram of carbohydrate per serving. You can have up to 3 condiment servings per lean and green meal per day on all plans.

Healthy Fat Recommendations

Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, like olive oil, olives, nuts & seeds, and avocado, are considered to be more beneficial to your health than saturated fats. We recommend choosing the majority of your healthy fat servings from those two categories. A healthy fat serving should contain about 5 grams of fat and less than 5 grams of carbohydrate. You’ll have 0-2 servings of healthy fats per lean and green meal, depending on your lean protein choices. Refer to your program guide for more information.
