Question from Cyn: How do you know which dips are the most fattening? For example, is spinach dip more fattening than hummus? What about guacamole?
Answers - Larissa Korde It's going to depend on the ingredients in the dip, so if you're eating at a restaurant you might not know that necessarily.
Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. I consider all dips to be a source of extra calories, simply because people tend to eat them unthinkingly. So, there's nothing wrong with eating a couple tablespoons, which is probably 100% fat, as long as you stop at that and don't eat the whole bowl — which is easy to do because it's so good.
