I really like Dr. Klaper. He’s been truly a pioneer in the field of scientific, vegan nutrition.
I met him during my short fast at the TrueNorth Health Center, last December, where he works as a doctor on staff. I also did a consultation with him.
I always found him full of insights, inquisitive, and extremely generous.
Enjoy this video of Dr. Klaper at conference a couple years ago, where he discussed olive oil. You’ll discover:
– Why studies done on olive oil never proved it was healthy in itself
– What’s wrong with restaurant food
– The reasons why olive oil is NOT heart-healthy
– How olive oil makes your arteries stiff, and the studies that proved it.
Now, does it mean that you should NEVER consume olive oil?
I put olive oil is the category of “concentrated foods to be enjoyed rarely and in moderation.” If you’re really active, burn a lot of calories, and eat only whole plant foods, then having a dish containing a small quantity of olive oil, like one teaspoon or two, once in a while, probably won’t hurt you. But I agree that for most people, when trying to lose weight, the policy of avoiding most oils 100% of the time is best.
