    I really don't want to make my own mayo/ketchup/mustard....

    So would it be that bad if I just use regular mayo, ketchup and mustard on my primal burgers? I mean I eat this primal burger at least once a week. If my goal was to lose belly fat and get ripped, will this affect it at all? Just curious, because a burger without these 3 things for me really does suck. However, I don't wish to make my own either. Must I give these 3 things up? Thanks in advanced.

    Regular mustard is usually fine.

    I rarely use ketchup, so I can't say on that, but I seem to remember it's loaded with sugar or HFCS.

    Mayo? Yeah, it's the same problem as finding a ready-made salad dressing. It's virtually impossible to find one that isn't made with safflower or canola or soybean oil, none of which are good for you. Even the ones that say "Made with olive oil" tend to have very small amounts of olive oil and mostly soybean oil.

    I have yet to try making mayo myself, but I probably will today. Lots of good videos on here and some of the Primal/Paleo blogs about it. Otherwise, I end up just doing without or using something different.

    I use mayo and mustard, with only occasional ketchup. Ketchup gets a bit too sweet when you get away from sugar. It's your way of eating -- your choice. And everyone's body responds differently.

    I use organic mayo and ketchup... but then again my goal isn't to "get ripped" either.

    Really, I think you'll be ok if you're not drowning your food in the stuff.

    I use conventional condiments, but very rarely. I think that unless you are eating several tablespoons worth once a week usage is probably not a big deal. Also, I second finding ketchup to be very sweet now.

    I'm not a fan of agave, but there are brands with regular sugar, or none added. Those, I think, would be better.

    In the condiment/salad dressing/marinade etc. aisle in my market (Stater Bros.) I've been trying the Walden Farms brand of salad dressing and barbecue sauce. I like them and they are no sugar, no carbs. Heinz makes a "No Added Sugar" ketchup that I like and use too.

    That is what the 20% is for. So you don't have to get obsessive and start making every condiment.

    Unless you're weird like me and ENJOY making condiments... :/
