Oil Throw Down!

The answer is listed below in the link:

My personal opinion: Bottom line is this: Oil is processed; a processed fat and I would rather get my fats from the whole foods such as the olives or the coconut in their natural state, as well as other whole fats such as avocado and raw nuts which still have the fiber and minerals that the oils lack.  We use very little oils in our house, instead we saute veggies in water or vegetable broth because fat is by far over used in cooking and it adds on a lot of useless fat calories to your day that can easily be cut out. The key is to use very sparingly, saturated fats should take up no more than 10% of your daily macronutrient ratio.  Where do you end up at the end of the day? (track it to see) I try to stick very close to that myself. When you hear that olive oil, coconut oil or any other oil is heart healthy, this only means that it is LESS harmful than other fat choices such as butter etc. If you already have a heart condition its certainly not something I would consume.  If I do use coconut oil I always buy the organic unrefined coconut oil and if I buy olive oil I buy the organic expeller pressed olive oil in a dark glass container.
