“I get so confused choosing the right oils and differentiating between different kinds of fats,” writes this week’s house call. “I watched a 60 Minutes episode that showed olive oil imported from Italy wasn’t really olive oil. And the other day, I went to the supermarket to pick up coconut oil and it said palm oil on the back. How can I make sense about these healthy fats amidst the confusion and deception?”
Honestly, even among people “in the know,” it can be a real challenge choosing the right kinds of fats and oils. Quality ultimately becomes key here. Fortunately, you can find a ton of helpful resources to navigate through the confusion in my new book, Eat Fat, Get Thin.
Here, let’s focus on oils. Today we will discuss olive oil, coconut oil, and palm oil – to help you make the best choices.
