Those may sound like strong words but hear me out.
First….Did you know one of the biggest causes of health problems in the world today is overuse of toxic vegetable oils?
This is mostly because the companies making these oils have created a false image.
Unbelievably, these oils are marketed as healthy, vegetable oils that are supposed to help lower cholesterol levels, promote fat loss, improve blood pressure issues and boost your health.
This is a fallacy and most people are unaware that they are being fooled by these multi-million dollar companies that are only interested in profits.
Most vegetable oils such as corn sunflower, canola, soy bean, etc. cannot be extracted by pressing unlike coconut or olive oil. These oils need to be extracted using chemical process.
In the past, the technology was not available to extract these oils, so people could not use it in their diets.
That’s why they didn't have problems like obesity and a whole range of other problems that are so common these days.
The rampant use of these vegetable oils has resulted in them being found in almost EVERY processed food.
Consuming these processed products leads to inflammation and weight gain just to name two.
Vegetable oils contain high levels of Omega-6 oils. This throws off the ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6 fatty acids in our bodies.
Instead of having and ideal ration of 1:1, most people have abnormally high ratios ranging from 16:1 or even 25:1.
This causes so many health problems that you could literally write a book about it.
One of the side effects of having too much Omega-6 in your body is obesity.
It is indirectly related. The human body needs fats to repair our cells. When the body is fed high levels of unhealthy fats from vegetable oils, it has no choice but to assimilate these fats into the cell repair.
This will lead to arterial clogging and other problems. None of which look good.
Cancer is indirectly linked to the consumption of vegetable oils too.
The best thing you can do for your health is to avoid these unhealthy vegetable oils at all cost. It can be tough since most processed foods and even foods at restaurants contain these oils. That is a choice you have to make for yourself.
There are healthy oils that you can use.
A few examples would be ghee, butter, coconut oil, olive oil, grapeseed oil and avocado oil. Ghee is excellent and can be used to fry eggs and used to make most dishes. Coconut and olive oil are great too.
So, give these oils a try and you will feel the difference.
At the end of the day, losing weight is more than just calories in and out. It’s more than just exercise.
Being lean and fit is a lifestyle choice. Once you lose the weight, you do not want it to come back. Rest assured, that weight gain is always faster and easier than weight loss. Life’s not fair.
Staying lean requires many different actions and daily choices in life.
Choosing to exclude processed vegetable oils in your diet is one of the best decisions to you could make to stay lean and healthy. Lose the fat and keep it off.
