Since they recommended it, I am sure that is what they mean, and would say was enough.
I doubt they are thinking that you would consume 1 tsp or less a day, but rather hve maybe 3 tsp. 2 X a week in certain dishes.
I am sure they have some reason why they settled on 7 tsp a week, but I have no idea why.
You can choose to follow it or not, but it is there guidelines. I consume 12-18 Tbsp, a week and have no issues, so it really comes down to who you think is right. If you wish to follow their plan, then you might want to follow it in it's entirety.
You obviously think differently than SP, but that isn't a reason for them to admit that they are wrong, or that they are. That is their guidelines, and they aren't likely to change. It is their advice to their 15 million members, and may not fit everyone definition of what is correct.
I think asking them whether they are correct isn't going to get the response you want.
What you really need to know is why they settled on 7 tsp. a week, so that you can decide whether you agree, and wish to use their guidelines in this case. It might be because of calories, or fat %. Finding out the reason would be important.
I am sure you will find many people who do well without oils, at SP recommended levels, at WW levels, or even higher, like me. None are correct for all. They work for those individuals.
What you need is the reasoning behind the levels suggested.
