Health Tip: Dietary Oil And Weight Loss

When losing excess weight, be sure you factor in how many calories you’re adding when using dietary oil. There are 120 calories in 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Measure oil instead of pouring directly from the bottle, so you know the exact calorie count. If you pour instead of measure, you’ may be adding more than you need.

Dietary oil also includes mayonnaise, and nut butters. Read the food label on the jar to see how many calories are in 1 tablespoon. Too much dietary oil may be the stumbling block in your weight loss plan.
