Losing weight is a big problem, which encounters you once in your life. Weight gain happens when the quantity of calories is less than the calories you burn in your body. Eating habits are the major concerns or are a major key to lose weight. But every time we talk about what food type one should eat or one should not eat. But many fewer people talk about the cooking oils.
Oils play an important role in your diet. Cooking oils helps to speed up your weight loss health regime. According to a study, switching from a diet high in saturated fat to one high in mono-unsaturated fat may help you lose a small amount of weight.
So now the question arises that which cooing oil is essential for weight loss? Here experts reveal that there is no specific oil that can help weight loss. However, if you are looking to lose weight and are on a healthy diet then peanut oil, sunflower oil and rice bran along with mustard oil are best to consume. One should always keep changing cooking oils in order to reap maximum benefits.
On the other hand, according to another expert, the best cooking oil for weight loss is ghee or olive oil. Both have a high smoking point (the temperature at which it smokes) which makes them ideal for cooking. Fat, in general, has a higher calorie per gram as compared to protein and carbohydrates, and you, therefore, need to be cautious with the amount you consume. In itself, fat might not help you lose weight. However, as a substitute for carbohydrate, it is an excellent source of energy for the body. Consuming fat instead of carbs means that the body will take much longer to digest the food as fat takes time to break down. Basically, any oil that is high in mono-unsaturated fats should be consumed, because most saturated fats are high in calories and dietary fats that can contribute to weight gain.
Extra virgin olive oil is known to be one of the healthiest oils making it suitable for cooking at higher heat. On the other hand, canola oil is one of the oils that are lowest in saturated fats. Peanut and sunflower seed oil have high smoking points that make them good for all types of cooking.
