I love hot dogs

seriously... I do. I don't know why. I will eat them in any shape or form... ketchup, pickles, onions, cheese, chili... you name it... I love it.

I try to be good and eat them rarely. one a week... with just ketchup and pickles... but damn! they are yummy!

Ok, that's all.

A big hot dog is around 300 cals. Dressed up with just ketchup and pickles (no bun), it's a meal that won't bust your diet.

Hebrew National 97% fat free hot dogs are around 80 cals each, and low fat. For that, have 2! It's a lean protein.

I'm sure the "processed food = evil" people will jump on me, but, if it's what you like, and you can manage it calorically, go for it!

Yep - I like the 97% fat free hebew national ones too. It's that bun that's the big killer! I use the Orowheat lite bread instead (45 cal) because I need some form of bread to hold it all together. I go with ketchup, mustard and relish and sometimes sourkraut.

Yeah, genrally I'm a non-processed kinda foods girl, but sometimes ya gotta have a hot dog! So I try to keep it something that I won't feel bad about.

I eat the turkey ones too with turkey chiilli,onions,mustard and a fat free cheese slice. The chilli dosen't add much because you only need about a tbs. I also scout out all the hot dog buns to see which has the least calories and sugar.

Morning Star makes these vegetarian corndogs that are only 150 calories each, and they are so good.

The bun only adds 80-120 calories. Lite buns add even less. Not exactly a big killer...though if you're cutting wherever you can it is one place to cut, if you don't care whether the hot dog has a bun.
