Cooking oil is most debated topic in weight loss diet. If you want to lose weight first thing what you will do is stop having oil/ butter etc. That is right also in a way. But lets know about 5 facts which you must know to get amazing weight loss results:
Oil or Fats are calorie dense: What ever food we are eating is for energy. Carbs, protein and fats mainly provide us energy. Out of these oils are very rich in calories. They provide 9 Kcals per gram which is almost double the no than carbs and proteins. So once you check your BMR you must know that only 30% calories can come from oil to lose weight. This can even go on lower side (basically depends on your goals)
Canola, Olive, Coconut oil and Ghee: are best suited for weight loss. Because of their chemical combinations they show great results. i have seen amazing results for my female clients when they switch to coconut oil for coking while on weight loss plan.
Oil or fats coming from Processed food: This is crucial. This is called as hidden calories. You must know how to read nutrition label on packaged food. Check how much fat is there and then only go for that products. some food items categorized in "Diet food" category contain more fat than regular products. So do go back and check your packets.
No vegetable oil provides cholesterol: It basically comes from non food items. And if you consume more bakery products then cholesterol in blood can go high.
Good fats are required for weight loss: Yes you need good fats to lose weight. They have great role to play. So add good healthy fats coming from unrefined oils, ghee, nuts, oil seeds etc.
