Effects of Olive Oil on Weight Loss

Most people who diet will cut out all fats, and this isn’t necessarily the right choice to make. Instead, you might just need to change the oil that you consume in an effort to lose weight. One way that has been proven effective is to replace vegetable oil and lard with olive oil. Research has been done on the effects of olive oil on weight loss, and the results are very encouraging.

Does Olive Oil Have an Effect on Weight Loss?
When olive oil is used in place of other oils, it has a definite effect on weight loss. This is because most other oils are saturated fat, while olive oil is a mono saturated fat. There is a huge difference between the two in terms of how it affects the human body. Among all mono saturated fats, research has proven that olive oil is the healthiest.

Olive oil has the greatest effect on weight loss when it is combined with a low carbohydrate diet. In fact, when you have a low carb diet, you can have a high amount of olive oil in that diet as well, and lose weight. Research has shown that a diet high in mono saturated fat and low in carbohydrates results in more weight loss than a diet that is low in fat and high in carbohydrates. The research concluded that when olive oil is included in the diet, and carbohydrates are reduced, a person tends to eat less altogether.

Does Olive Oil Have a Better Effect on Weight Loss Than No Oil?

Naturally, anytime you remove fats from your diet you will lose weight. With that said, however, removing all fats from your diet isn’t necessarily healthy, and it certainly isn’t conducive to keeping weight off once you’ve lost it.

Eliminating all oil, and fat, from your diet will result in faster weight loss, without a doubt, and if fast weight loss is what matters most to you, eliminate all oil, including olive oil. If slower more permanent weight loss is more important, use olive oil instead of other types of oil, and make sure that it is extra virgin olive oil. But in the end, you cannot ignore the health benefits of olive oil altogether.
Other Health Benefits of Olive Oil

Aside from helping you to lose weight, olive oil has other health benefits that you should be aware of. At least a teaspoon of olive oil a day can actually lower your blood cholesterol by about five percent. This amount of olive oil each day also reduces your risk of heart disease.

Although the theory and belief has not been proven, it is also widely believed that mono saturated fat, such as olive oil, has the ability to aid the body in breaking down body fats, which can also aid in additional or more effective weight loss.
