Pay Attention to This Important Nutrition Tip
The other day I received the following question from a reader.
“I’ll be honest with you … I believe that eating as much raw fruits and
vegetables as you can is a great way to go … and I am working on doing
that. However, I am somewhat skeptical of your recommendation to remove all
oils from the diet. What could be wrong with a little olive oil on my raw salad?”
So this brings me to today’s tip:
“Limit or eliminate all concentrated fats such as oils, butter and oily dressings”
The truth is… there is actually nothing “wrong” with a little olive oil on your salad. But most people don’t realize how much “little” represents.
What’s important is to lower the *overall* quantity of fat in the diet, and that’s almost impossible to do when you still consume oils.
Oils are pure fat, and are not whole food.
Instead, consume fats in *whole foods* only (such as avocados and nuts), and avoid all concentrated fats.
If you’re really active, and you burn a lot of calories, then a little bit of olive oil is not going to hurt you. But that’s not the case of most people.
Just stop buying oils. For a good salad dressing, try blending a little avocado with a tomato and some balsamic vinegar. Most people really enjoy that one.
Eliminating oil from your diet will seriously improve your levels of energy.
