View Full Version : too much oil?

06-04-2005, 10:18 PM
I'm currently cutting and cook a lot with olive oil. I have 4 meals (eggs and chicken basically) using one table spoon of oil. 1 spoon = 14g fat, 2g sat fat.

So my question is if I should cut this, or is it good to have those kinds of fats.
Also if I keep using olive oil or substitute for another kind of oil.

Note: I do not consume much fat, all the fat I take comes from milk and pb. And I consume low carbs as well (maybe 2 slices of ww bread or portion of ww pasta a day).

Much thanks.

Why not drink skim milk, 0 grams of fat comapred to 2.5 per cup, that would help you out some.

the fats from olive oil, milk, and natty peanut butter are good for you (in moderation)

I cut on a higher-fat diet. As long as your cals and protein are lined up, the balance of your cals gets made up of whatever you find comfortable. I find it easier to control my appetite if I keep my fats a little on the high side and my carbs on the low side.

So is it okay most of my fats come from olive oil, meaning 56g of fat, 8g sat fat a day?

Sure, but can you maybe add in nuts, avocado, fish oil, egg yolks...?

I would reccomend that you eat other healthy fat sources as well, but I can testify that no harm whatsoever will come to you while consuming significant amounts of expeller cold pressed virgin olive oil, its a miracle of nature.

yes, sir. I eat half avocado and few nuts a day as well. Thanks for your help.

I would keep the Olive Oil as the oil of choice for cooking. My wife and I only use unfiltered expeller cold pressed virgin olive oil for all cooking except cookies and cakes and other contraband food.

Also, everyday I take 1 tablespoon of unfiltered expeller cold pressed virgin olive oil,1 tablespoon of fish oil(12 capsules a day) and 1 tablespoon of Barleans Flax Oil. I like my fat.
