Our Oil-Rich Country, or From Your Lips Right to Your Hips

SHARE

An effective way to sabotage your weight-loss goal is with high-fat dressings and sauces. Americans consume 60 grams of added fat in
the form of oils, which is over five hundred calories a day from this form of no-fiber, empty calories. Refined or extracted oils, includ­ ing olive oil, are rich in calories and low in nutrients.
Oils are           100 percent fat. Like all other types of fat, they contain nine calories per gram, compared with four calories per gram for car­ bohydrates. There are lots of calories in just a little bit of oil. 

ANALYSIS OF ONE TABLESPOON OF OLIVE OIL

Calories           120
Fiber                 none
Protein             none
Fat                    13.5 gm
Saturated fat   1.8 gm
Minerals          none (trace, less than .01 mg of every mineral)
Vitamins          none (trace of vitamin E, less than   1 IU)

Fat, such as olive oil, can be stored on your body within minutes,
without costing the body any caloric price; it is just packed away (un­
changed) on your hips and waist. If we biopsied your waist fat and looked  at  it under an  electron  microscope,  we  could actually see where the fat came from. It is stored there as pig fat, dairy fat, and olive oil fat —just as it was in the original food. It goes from your lips right to your hips. Actually, more fat from your last meal is deposited around your waist than on your hips,  for both men and women. Analyzing these body-fat deposits is an accurate way for research sci­ entists to discern food intake over time.21 Having research subjects remember what they ate (dietary recall analysis) is not as accurate as a tissue biopsy, which reports exactly what was really eaten.
Foods cooked in oil or coated with oils soak up more oil than you think. A low-calorie "healthy" food easily becomes fattening. Most Americans eat negligible amounts of salad vegetables, but when they do eat a small salad, they consume about three leaves of iceberg let­ tuce in a small bowl and then proceed to pour three or four table­
spoons of oily dressing on top. Since oil is about
120 calories per
tablespoon, they consume some 400        (empty) calories from dressing
and about        18 from lettuce. They might as well forget the lettuce and just drink the dressing straight from the bottle.
One key to your success is to make healthful salad dressings that
are low in fat and calories. Some of my favorites are in chapter nine,
as well as some commercial dressings with less then twenty calories per tablespoon.
The message Americans are hearing today from the media and health professionals is that you don't need to go on a low-fat diet, you merely need to replace the bad fats (saturated fats mostly from
animal products and trans fats in processed foods) with olive oil. Amer­
icans are still confused and receive conflicting and incorrect messages.
