In the chart above, shown in blue, are the good oils with saturated fat, with green (monounsaturated fat) in second, and unhealthy oils in purple. As you can see, opposite of what we have been taught. Living Keto, we learn fat is our friend! Fat doesn’t make us fat or clog our arteries. Unhealthy oils ( corn, canola, soy bean, safflower, peanut, sesame, and other vegetable based oils). These oils are unnatural, and contain high amounts of Omega-6, which are harmful in large amounts. Vegetable oils, (VO) contribute to inflammation, are loaded with Trans fats, can raise your risk of cardiovascular disease, and on and on. Almost all processed and fast foods contain large amounts of VO’s. Anything that is “Partially Hydrated” and fried foods are harmful to mankind, causing a huge amount of damage to our bodies. See links at the bottom for more harmful effects!
Plant based oils, including Olive oil and Coconut oil are good for our bodies. The benefits include treatment for diabetes, heart problems, arthritis, high cholesterol, weight loss, metabolism, digestion, aging and a variety of cancers. The Food and Drug Administration recommends 2 tablespoons of olive oil every day to reduce the risk of heart disease. Coconut Oil Contains Fatty Acids With Powerful Medicinal Properties, and can kill harmful Microorganisms. These are just some of the benefits, see the link below.
Know your body and especially know what your putting into it.
Knowledge is power and your health is all you have!
