The obesity epidemic alarm has sounded all across the country and WJZ-TV Baltimore responded by inviting Dr. Felicia Stoler, author of Living Skinny in Fat Genes, to share some common sense strategies for slimming down. Included is a discussion on healthy oil for cooking.
A popular way to lose weight and maintain good health is to follow the Mediterranean Diet based on whole grains, vegetables and healthy fats. The healthy fat most commonly used in this cuisine is olive oil, but Felicia introduced Baltimore viewers to Malaysian Palm Fruit Oil. Due to its unique composition, Malaysian Palm Fruit Oil has no impact on your cholesterol as long as your total dietary fat intake is in line with the levels recommended by health agencies such as the American Heart Association.
This new contender is rich in antioxidants and Vitamin E tocotrienols. Beta carotene, most commonly associated with carrots, lends the red-orange tint to the red variety of Malaysian Palm Fruit Oil. It is thought that tocotrienols may protect your brain’s sensitive nerve cells should you have a stroke.
Especially for those who prefer natural, unprocessed foods, Stoler says that Malaysian Palm Fruit Oil is the obvious and smartest choice.
