Secrets of Success

Fats And Oils




Be careful when using pan sprays. One serving is only a 1/3 second or 1/4 second spray. Longer sprays = more than one serving, and thus more fat grams (which means more calories!) Try just using a heart healthy oil like olive oil or canola, instead. Aim for 2 tsp a day total. You might be surprised that eating a healthy amount of healthy fat actually can HELP your weight loss efforts.

  • I hope you mean 2 TBSP cause 2 tsp a day is not exactly ideal, considering most cooking calls for more oil than that per meal. - by WATERLILY73
