I found a post or two about this but none of them mentioned if it was ok to while trying to drop the fat. Any thoughts on this with some wheat pita?

Tasty. haha.

I think hummus is ok, because the fat in it is mostly unsaturated fats (it's made from chickpeas and olive oil mainly). Just keep track of the calories...

if it fits into your daily macro/micro nutritional breakdown then of course....
you can fit anything into a good cutting diet...its just a question of what you have to sacrifice to fit it in

Go for the reduced fat version if you're cutting. Wholewheat pittas cut into strips and dipped into humus are fantastic :) For even less cals, use something like carrot sticks and celery. Although this option doesn't provide much protein.
