Yeah... Poetica... fat actually helps BURN fat. Well, the GOOD fat anyway. And the olive oil your hubby used is a GREAT fat!! So don't sweat it. It's a MUFA (Mono-Unsaturated Fatty Acid) and that's the good fats that help you lose the bad fat. Olive oil (extra virgin), nuts and nut butters (natural), avocado and dark chocolate are examples of good fats that you can incorporate into your diet on a daily basis, but IN MODERATION!!!
This might make you feel better about a little bit of healthy oil.
I allow myself one diet drink per day. It just keeps me sane and I like to have it with spicy food. Last night I got what I thought was a Minute Maid Light and drank it with a spicy meal, but it turned out to be regular lemonade! ARGH! That was 150 calories of simple sugars down the hatch and I didn't even notice it until I threw the empty can into the recycling bin. On the plus side, I had LOTS of energy at 10:00 pm last night! LOL!!
Oh well!! Just keep on moving forward!!

I think all the responses are really good. Nice to know there are so many knowledgeable people on this site. I learn every day.
Etra Vrigin Olive Oil is a healthy fat that helps keep out arteries clean and supple...it is high in polyphenols & monounsaturated fats which can contribute to lowering bad cholesterol. It may even lower blood pressure and keeps our colons healthy,,,,so dont stress out.. Olive Oil is very beneficial to one system...get the Olive Oil Pam Spray if your worried your using to much.
Besides carbs are the main reason for increasing body weight and not fats.
I agree with the previous posters-- don't worry about it. If you were consistently over on your fat grams (and yet still within your calorie range), you'd most likely also be under on your carbs or protein. So that would be an imbalance you might want to make an effort to change. But one day is no big deal.
Also, you could lower your calories tomorrow, or the grams of fat, if either is high today. Your body doesn't separate nutrition by the date on a calendar. If you eat 10 g of fat too much today, and 10 g below top of range tomorrow, you will average in range.

Like Dragon said, fat doesn't make you fat. Eating too many calories does. I'm often over my fat range by a little bit, but it doesn't bother me at all, as long as my calories are still in range. Also, it WAS olive oil, which is a healthy fat at least.

There is no damage done, and there's no reason to (nor is it possible to) attempt to "neutralize" the effect.
Fat will not make you fat, certainly not one day of eating a little bit over. It's okay! Just keep up your normal routine, and just aim to do better next time!

I've been paying such close attention to what I ate tonight, but making dinner tonight my husband used olive oil without saying anything. It put me over my fat level for the day. DARN! I feel that I should exercise a lot more to try to neutralize the effect of it, or drink extra water, or something. Any ideas? Or is the damage done?
