5 Reasons Why Vegetable Oil is Worse Than Sugar

One of the first steps you take to live a Primal lifestyle is to do a pantry purge.  Don’t put a lot of pressure on yourself to run to your pantry now and get your trash can and empty your shelves, although some people do indeed do this.  Everyone has their own level of urgency and commitment.  For now, I just want to share with you this straight forward article that touches on one of the key things we teach as Primal Health Coaches.

You will hear me talk a lot about getting your diet right first and foremost, even before talking about your exercise.  80% of your body composition is based on your diet.  This article concedes to the fact that we know sugar is not good for our health, but it goes into detail as to why vegetable and other seed oils are even worse for us.

The 5 reasons the article goes into further detail on are:

  1. It Can Cause Weight Gain
  2. It May Diminish Brain Function
  3. It Can Harm Your Ticker
  4. It’s Filled With Carcinogens
  5. It Can Cause Inflammation

Throw Out the Gnarly Nine:

  • Canola Oil
  • Corn Oil
  • Cottonseed Oil
  • Palm Oil
  • Soy Oil
  • Sunflower Oil
  • Safflower Oil
  • Rice Bran
  • Grapeseed Oil

Restock your shelves and fridge with healthy fats like:

  • Olive Oil
  • Coconut Oil
  • Avocado Oil
  • Grass-Fed Butter

Take some time and start to read labels on the foods you are buying and consuming.  One of the biggest ones to look at are the salad dressings you are buying.  You will see that almost all of them start with Canola Oil and then Soy Oil.  I eat a lot of salad and when I do, I either use extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar, or I use the Primal Kitchens salad dressings that are made from 100% Avocado Oil.  These are delicious products and are considered good fats and they’ll help to make you feel satiated!

I welcome any and all questions or comments you have. Good luck on your journey to better health!
