Oils help you lose weight more than many people suspect.
Natural oils such as linseed and olive oil stimulate fat burning with unsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3.
The health expert Claudia Miersch from the health insurance center reveals five oils that are special slimming agents.
Tips for losing weight abound. Regardless of whether it is a lot of sport or a wide variety of diets – there does not seem to be the right way to achieve your ideal weight. However, nutrition always plays a significant role. One ingredient is criminally underestimated, as a study by the health platform “Krankenkasse-Zentrale” shows. Natural edible oils can therefore be of great help in losing weight.
Oils are often associated with fatty acids. And fat sounds like a big no-no to many when you want to lose weight. It all depends on whether the fatty acids are unsaturated or saturated. In vegetable oils, unsaturated fatty acids such as omega-3 boost fat burning, help break down liver fat and improve insulin intensity.
Saturated fats and trans fats, on the other hand, are linked to weight gain. These fats are mainly found in baked goods, confectionery, and finished products. In the case of fast food and the like, a feeling of satiety only sets in late, which means that we consume more calories than we need.
These Five Oils Will Help You Lose Weight
Vegetable oils such as rapeseed oil, on the other hand, have excellent fat quality. Linseed oil and hemp oil have a very high omega-3 fatty acid content, which stimulates fat burning. According to nutrition expert Claudia Miersch, other good oil alternatives for losing weight are walnut oil and olive oil.
Dishes with fresh foods and natural oils also keep you full longer and provide the body with more vitamins and minerals. Not to mention the taste, which is intensified by the oils. “You shouldn’t underestimate native oils. In addition to the metabolism, they also have a positive effect on the immune system, the skin, and various age-related diseases,” says the nutrition expert.
However, one shouldn’t overdo it either. Up to two tablespoons of the oils a day is enough to help us lose weight.
