Hiding In Your Food: Oils and Fats

Tablespoon Oil

Even the most careful eater can consume unwanted oils. If we eat at a restaurant, we can ingest around 400 calories of oil.

Read my article “Tip: Easily Cut About 400 Calories Per Day”

We can’t fully control what ingredients the chefs use when we dine out.

We can educate ourselves so that we know what to look for on food labels.

Read the labels for these ingredients which count as added fat/oil:

  • Diglycerides
  • Monoglycerides
  • Lecithin
  • All Oils (Including Coconut Oil and Olive Oil)

Why are oils unhealthy? Olive Oil Is Not Healthy

Are you avoiding oil in your food consumption?
