Know Your Fats and Oils
Do you really know that the Fat or Oil is actually what you paid for or is it full of substituted, chemically treated un-healthy oils, which are actually harming you and your families’ health?
As with our page concerning “Sugar Your Life Away” being one of the major contributors to “Obesity”, another enlarging problem that we are facing is the use of the “So-Called Healthy Oils” that is being pushed out as the only way to live correctly is with their use which is proving to be so incorrect with so much research lately telling us the complete opposite to these false claims!
Using these “Un-Healthy Oils” with the additional over use of so many “Sugars” over the last 20 to 30years has caused “Obesity” to run riot amongst the Western Civilisations and has turned into a major epidemic and increased every bodies medical costs.
Now you can find out all of the truths, fiction (lies) and facts about the Fats and Oils that we are using every day with our 2-part series.
Understand the benefits and dis-advantages of the good and so-called good Fats and Oils!
Get yourself back to a healthy person and enjoy life as it’s meant to be lived.

Are You Using
The Wrong Oil in Your Diet?
Using the wrong type of cooking oil can actually be making you gain weight. It can be so frustrating in trying to understand what the best cooking oil is to use. One minute you are told to use peanut oil, then told that olive oil is not all that it is made out to be. This article will try and clear all of this up for you.
Many manufacturing companies do falsely represent their oils. They tell you that their oil is healthy and will help you lower your cholesterol levels, while improving your blood pressure and more. In reality you are being misled by these companies.
The problem with vegetable oils is that the oil needs to be extracted, and this can only be done by using a chemical process, not a natural one. These oils are ones such as corn oil, sunflower, oil, canola oil and soy bean oil.
This technology is fairly new so decades ago people just did not eat this type of oil at all. Which is also the reason why obesity was not such a huge concern then as it is now.
Vegetable oil is used in so many products including almost every single processed food out there on the market. Adding too much vegetable oil in your diet can lead to many health problems including weight gain, inflammation, heart disease, high cholesterol levels and more.
The problem with vegetable oil is that it contains huge amounts of Omega 6 oils. It is important to understand that the ratio of Omega 3 to Omega 6 oils should be kept at 1:1. Adding vegetable oils and processed foods throws this off completely. It is not unheard of for people to have ratios as high as 25:1.
The biggest side effect of obesity is gaining weight. While our body does require fat to repair our cells, it does not require such high levels. When too much fat is available the excess is simply stored as additional fat.
This excess storage leads to problems such as clogged arteries and has been indirectly linked to some cancers.
So, what can you do to combat this?
The easiest thing for you to do is to avoid using vegetable oil whenever possible. In fact, try not to use it all. Unfortunately, this is not as easy as it might sound. As we mentioned before vegetable oil can be found in pretty much every type of processed food.
While avoiding vegetable oil as much as possible will be a huge boost to your health. There are other choices you have when it comes to cooking with oils. These are oils which are normally pressed as opposed to extracted, even filtered oils are usually a better choice too.
The healthiest oils available today include:
- Palm oil
- Coconut oil
- Olive oil
- Avocado oil
Try these oils out in different ways. Use butter or ghee for frying eggs and onions. Coconut oil is great for roasting vegetables.
Try them out and see which ones you like the most.
Whether you are trying to lose weight or just eat in a healthier manner, it is important to pay attention to the types of food you are including in your diet.
Try to stay away from processed foods as much as possible.
Get into the habit of reading food labels to see what type of oil the product contains.
Remember you are making lifestyle changes and not just on a ‘diet’.
By avoiding vegetable oils and replacing it with a better alternative
you will be doing your entire family a service.
You will all stay healthier and slimmer and be happier for it.
Fats and Oils that you need to change to.
Also, you will find so many other uses that come from some products,
health, beauty and household uses that at times will amaze you.

Diet, But Know Your Fats!
Margarine, butter, other spreading fats and low-fat spreads, cooking oils, oil-based salad dressings, mayonnaise, cream, fried foods including fried chips, chocolate, crisps, biscuits, pastries, cake, puddings, ice-cream, rich sauces and gravies are all in this food group because they contain fat.
Like carbohydrates, fats contain the elements Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen. Fats are used as a source of energy: they are also stored beneath the skin helping to insulate us against the cold. Do not think that by avoiding fat in your diet you will stay thin and elegant! If you eat too much carbohydrate and protein, you will convert some of it into fat, so you will put on weight. You must balance the amount of energy containing foods with the amount of energy that you use when you take exercise
Soft drinks (not diet drinks), sweets, jam and sugar, as well as foods such as cakes, puddings, biscuits, pastries and ice-cream.
It is essential to have a small amount of fat in the diet, but eat foods containing fat sparingly as they are high in energy. Look out for reduced fat or low-fat alternatives (by law any food labelled as low fat must contain no more than 3g of fat per 100g). Fats can be divided into saturates, monounsaturates and polyunsaturates.
Limit consumption of saturates, associated with animal products, cakes, biscuits and pastries, to reduce risk of heart disease. To cut down on saturates, make use of the information on nutrition panels on food products, cut off visible fat from meat and poultry, choose lower fat meat and dairy products, and where fat is needed in cooking use it sparingly.
Choose fats and oils containing monounsaturates (e.g. olive and rapeseed oils) and polyunsaturates (e.g. sunflower, corn and rapeseed oils) instead of saturates. In moderation these are not associated with an increased risk of heart disease – but still use them sparingly.
There are two types of essential fats, which must be supplied by the diet in small amounts: omega-3 fatty acids (e.g. found in oily fish, walnuts, omega-3 enriched eggs, and rapeseed and soya oil) and omega-6 fatty acids (e.g. found in vegetable oils such as sunflower, corn and soya oil and spreads made from these).
