Hello! As I was buying my egg substitute today I noticed a parkay butter spray in close proximity. It has 0 calories, 0 fat, 0 cholesterol, and 5mg of sodium per 5 sprays. I thought this might be tasty on some veggies or some plain popcorn. How would it fit into the program (evening fat?)..

Your question was: Parkay spread ok for Nutrisystem?.

This has been asked on two forums today by the same person....

Third try anyone?..

Comment #1

It can't be a fat because it doesn't have any fat.

Keep in mind that anything that says 0 calories per serving doesn't mean NO calories. FDA says that anything with less than 5 calories per serving can put 0 calories on the label. Most of us count it as 4-5 calories. So 1 spray would be 1 calorie. 20 sprays would be 20 calories and count as a free food...

Thank you cgbinky! I use a couple of sprays on plain popcorn and it really makes the difference...

Comment #3

Please don't think that I'm jumping all over you because I'm not. I'm just curious to know where everyone is getting this stat from. I keep hearing that the whole bottle has 900 calories and that seems like an awful lot of caloriesit's not that big a bottle. I can't find where the total calories are on the bottle but I'm thinking if 8 oz. has 900 calories than 5 sprays should have more than 0 (or under 5) calories...

No offense taken. When I first read there were that many calories in a bottle I couldn't believe it either. I did some searches and alas, it appears to be true.

The government allows a company to say 0 calories if there are less than 5 calories per serving. That is why you'll notice some bottles of "no calorie" drinks say 2.5 servings, when almost everyone is going to drink the entire bottle...

If I remember right, someone contacted the company on this but not sure..

Comment #6

That's 5 or less calories per spray... it's deceptive labeling.

They call a "topping" 5 sprays.

There are 226 servings of toppings in the bottle.

That makes a topping around 4 calories per 5 squirts...

Comment #7

Thanks everyone for the input! Those labels can be misleading. I use like 4 or 5 sprays on a cup of plain popcorn...so I'll count it as 2 free foods. I never use all 3 free foods anyways...

Comment #8

If you're only using 4 or 5 sprays, I wouldn't count it at all. That's less than 5 calories.

If you see the Smart Balance spray, try that when you run out of Parkay. The Smart Balance squeeze is only 5 calories per Tablespoon, and I think it tastes pretty good...

Comment #9

Technically you should not have 2 free foods in one sitting. If you choose to use all three, you should spread them out in the day..

However, the spray is so low cal that I wouldn't even bother counting it as long as you keep it 5 sprays or less...
