When you wash your dishes, do you have to use extra soap and hot water to get the oils off your plate? Well, if you can’t easily wash the oils off, you won’t be able to easily excrete them from your body.
Which cooking oils are the stickiest and most unhealthy? They’re found in EVERYTHING today.
This is because these are trans fats that are purposefully manufactured not to dissolve easily. Crisco® is a hydrogenated oil with a shelf life that can last for two years unopened and about a year after it’s opened.
Studies show that the trans fats in hydrogenated vegetable oils increase inflammation in your body, and adding hydrogen to oil (hence, hydrogenated) makes the oil more difficult to digest. Your body recognizes trans fats as saturated fats, which makes them less digestible.
Saturated fat is found in butter, lard, fatty meats and cheese, and if you over eat these fats daily, weight gain and inflammation can result. These are the fats that are solid at room temperature.
Hydrogenated oil is unhealthy for you because it contains a high level of hydrogenated fats, and these are called trans fats or trans fatty acids.
Trans fats have been clinically proven to cause weight gain, even when the participants consumed a diet with less calories necessary to maintain their weight. Like all fats, trans fat contains 9 calories per gram and consuming a lot of trans fat can lead to unwanted weight gain and inflammation.
The fat stored in your body typically collects in your abdominal region, creating unwanted belly fat.
The more trans fat you consume, the more trans fatty acids remain in your body fat. If you eat a minimal amount of trans fatty acids, you can break them down to carbon dioxide and water, and this can be easily removed from your body.
So don’t beat yourself up if you cheat every now and again or enjoy some sweets during holiday times – just don’t eat trans fatty foods every day.
Worst Oils For Inflammation
The American diet is very high in omega-6 fatty acids – a type of polyunsaturated fatty acid that plays a crucial role in brain function, and in growth and development.
Omega-6s help stimulate skin and hair growth, maintain bone health, regulate metabolism, and maintain the reproductive system, but omega-6s can trigger the body to produce pro-inflammatory chemicals.
Omega-6 fatty acids are a type of fat called polyunsaturated fat. Omega-6 fatty acids are found in vegetable oils, nuts and seeds.
They’re OK to eat in small amounts, but read your labels and avoid the omega-6s in corn, safflower, sunflower, corn, soybean and cottonseed oils that contain the highest amounts.
Food products made with omega-6 fatty acids are some of the worst causes of inflammation.
Butter, coconut oil, lard, palm oil, and olive oil are all relatively low in omega-6.
Eat More Clean Veggies
Eat foods that contain no trans fats such as vegetables, fruit, and unprocessed whole grains to avoid inflammation and weight gain.
Avoid deep fried foods. Select grilled, steamed, broiled or baked dishes instead, and eat out less and cook at home more.
Replacing saturated fats with healthier unsaturated fats, such as white meat and fish, can led to weight loss.
If you have to turn up the hot water and pour extra dish soap on your dishes to get them clean after dinner, you are using the wrong type of oils.
