Can shape up oil (not pills) products help to reduce belly or thighs fat? Is there any side effects if I use it daily? Thank you.

Can shape up oil (not pills) products help to reduce belly or thighs fat? Is there any side effects if I use it daily? Thank you.

No: There aren't any over-the-counter lotions, creams, or oils that reduce belly or thigh fat. Those products may make skin softer and smoother, but the only way to reduce fat is to use up the fat as fuel. Fat is the body's way of storing fuel. If one eats fewer calories than her body uses each day, they her body will use the stored fat and thus decrease fat in her body. ...Read more

Knowing our Body: Nope. Not in any way. There would be nothing topical that would lead you to burn more calories or burn off excess fat stored in the fat molecules. This product is 100% fraudulent. ...Read more

Can you please clarify why Extra Virgin olive oil which has Saturated fat lowers LDL (bad cholesterol.) Is it advised to eat lot it olive oil daily?

Can you please clarify why Extra Virgin olive oil  which has Saturated fat lowers LDL (bad cholesterol.) Is it advised to eat lot it olive oil daily?

False statement: Olive oil does not lower LDL. Olive oil raises ldl less so compared to other fats. Although there is some saturated fat in olive oil the major component is monounsaturated fat. This topic is too complex for me to answer fully here. But suffice it to say... Small amounts of olive oil daily 1 tablespoon or less combined with a healthy diet is healthier than many other fats ( trans-fats&sat. fats) ...Read more

I daily eat 5 -7 table spoons of extra version olive oil mostly sprinkling on food, salad. Any health benefits, or concerns from the saturated fat.

I daily eat 5 -7 table spoons of extra version olive oil mostly sprinkling on food, salad. Any health  benefits,  or concerns from the saturated fat.

Only calories!: There is little saturated fat in olive oil, which primarily is monosaturated fat, the fat with health benefits, and which also moderates your cholesterol and increases hdl. The only downside is the extra calories. If you are on a low carbohydrate lifestyle, it wouldn't matter. But on a conventional diet it would. It is a good idea to replace saturated fat with monsaturated fat when you can! ...Read more

I eat daily lot good healthy food: raw almond, seed, Walnut, Pecan Pistachio, Brazil nut, & olive oil.This adds up to 15+grams sat fat.  Any Concerns?

NO unless...: While it's long been recommended that people minimize saturated fat, recent research suggests there's no benefit to limiting saturated fat (especially when it comes from the healthy foods you are eating) unless you have Familial Hypercholesterolemia or ApoE4. See http://authoritynutrition.com/saturated-fat-good-or-bad/ for a very well-written discussion of saturated fat and the current science. ...Read more

My only source of fat at the moment is extra virgin olive oil, but i might be using a bit more than I should (6-10 servings per day). Is it still ok?

My only source of fat at the moment is extra virgin olive oil, but i might be using a bit more than I should (6-10 servings per day). Is it still ok?

Need more info: To answer your question, i would need to know what other foods you are eating, your size and weight, and how much exercise you are getting. 1 serving of olive oil (1 tbs) = 120 calories. If you are getting up to 10 servings (1200 calories!) a day, that may be a bit much. A healthy diet is balanced & not weighted too much on fats. ...Read more

Can olive oil contribute to arterial plaque? What about if olive oil is the only source of fat, (about 6-8 servings)?

Can olive oil contribute to arterial plaque? What about if olive oil is the only source of fat, (about 6-8 servings)?

Possibly,NOT HEALTHY: While olive oil, esp. Raw fresh extra virgin is a relatively healthy oil to use (see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=foodspice;dbid=132) large amounts are associated with increased risk of heart disease- see http://bit.Ly/1cgojkl it should never be the only source of fat; good health requires essential omega 3 fats ; olive oil lacks these.

If too little body fat leads to organ failure, then why do people say to avoid things like oil in our diet?

If too little body fat leads to organ failure, then why do people say to avoid things like oil in our diet?

Separate issues: Excess body fat is MUCH more common than too little. One has to be on an extreme diet (or anorexic) or have malabsorption to get dangerously low body fat. Avoiding oils does not reduce body fat much; eating carbs is the main cause of fat. The reason some say oils should be avoided has to do with the fact that many oils are pro-inflammatory & cause oxidative stress- see http://tinyurl.com/metmg3w ...Read more

Which oil is good for health and how much quantity can be taken daily?

Which oil is good for health and how much quantity can be taken daily?

It depends...: This depends on if you're asking about oils for cooking or to take raw. The healthiest oils are those that contain essential fatty acids (EFA's), which are some of the Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids; the best choices are hemp, flax & fish oil but these are not good to cook with. The best choice for cooking is coconut oil, though it does not have EFA's. See http://bit.ly/SkIDdw & http://bit.ly/U1D44Y ...Read more
