You have t look at their overall lifestyle rather than pick out the olive oil.
Organic Cold Pressed and evening passed through a pigs bottom oil is not ideal for human bodies.
Oil is not the type of fat that you want to include in your diet because it’s fattening and disease building.
You will hear about essential fatty acids, such as omega 3’s and 6’s and how raw and cold pressed oils will give you these health promoting fats.
Whether it is olive oil, coconut oil, flax seed oil, heat treated or cold pressed/raw oil, oils do not promote health in any shape or form.
Mediterranean diet myth and its use of olive oil!
Supposedly, a great aid to those that consume it and today is still touted around the world as been health promoting.
However, when you look at the facts behind this and other supposedly healthy oils it all comes down to the same thing…fat and nothing else but fat!
What never gets mentioned is the fact that the people consuming olive oil in the island of Crete, for example, back in the 1950’s were eating an abundance of fruits and vegetables and doing plenty of exercise and manual work.
Fast forward to the present day and their health is now very much the same as many westerners, being overweight and unhealthy.
The problem is that they now exercise less, eat unhealthily, consume animal products and processed foods, and carry on consuming olive oil.
Greek EPIC prospective cohort study followed 23,349 people eating the Mediterranean diet for 8.5 years.
The biggest health benefits did not come from the olive oil that they were eating.
Instead, it came from high vegetable intake, low meat intake, and moderate alcohol consumption.
Diets rich in olive oil, on the other hand, contribute to atherosclerosis and higher rates of coronary artery disease.
Let’s look at some of the facts about oils:
1. Oils are a highly processed food (a man-made fragmented nutrient), and contain 100% fat, which is something you will never find in nature. They can never compare to whole foods (fruits, veg, nuts and seeds), which always contain a whole host of many other nutrients as well as fat, and are a complete nutritional package.
2. Olive oil packs a whopping 4020 calories per ounce – if you want to release weight, that’s a LOT of empty, junk food calories!
3. Fat found in oils can results in extra flab around the waist and hips. Yes, as far as oils are concerned the unhealthy fat that you eat will be the fat that you wear.
4. Other adverse effects of consuming oils include: unbalanced Omega 3 to 6 ratio, diabetes and immune system suppression. We need omega 3’s which cone in a ratio low in 6’s from whole seeds, greens, sprouts, seaweeds and algae’s.
Let’s also mention the thinning of the blood, which could be very serious if one is in a major traffic accident or suffers a ruptured artery in the brain.
Oil fats are also associated with an increased risk of cataracts.
So what should you eat instead of oil?
A whole and as much raw as possible diet containing fresh fruits, vegetables, and moderate amounts of plant-based whole food fats, are the optimal and only real choice for obtaining your essential fatty acids in a health-inducing way.
So, instead of buying into all this hype about what oils are supposed to do – just have your olives, nuts, coconuts and seeds as they come in their natural state and in moderate amounts.
Any oil, regardless of whether it has been cold pressed or not, is an imbalanced and unhealthy food source. Fragmented products result in fragmented health.

Not even Olive Oil!
There is no place for any oil in a real whole foods, plant diet. Olive oil, coconut oil, avocado & other vegetable oils are processed foods that do not support good health, in fact hinder it. Even flaxseed oils. Most oils are manufactured in a way they turn into a trans fat. We know trans fats are the worst fhoods on the planet killing us.
* Vegetable oils contain almost no vitamins, protein, carbohydrates, minerals or fibre they are empty calories
* Vegetable oils are extremely energy dense & lead to weight gain & diabetes
* Whole plant foods like avocado, coconut, seeds, nuts, greens, vegetables & fruits contain all the essential fats that our bodies require
Eating oils stops the simple sugars from fruits, vegetables or greens reaching the cells causing
diabetes due to fermentation. Causing gas, bloating, rashes & exhaustion,
taxing the liver stopping healing. Oils weaken the mitochondria & cause nervous
system damage. 1 bag of crips/chips or 2 rashes of bacon or one deep fried pattie or hash brown or a spread of nutilex or margarine is
the equivalent of 3 cigarettes & takes longer to recover from. Taking 6-8 days to
recover the body & to eliminate from the liver. Eat these foods often & the liver
gets overburdened. Add sugar which taxes the liver further, poor food combinations
& denatured foods & the liver gets backed up. The liver is needed for everything, most fatty liver is caused by oils not alcohol. Oils create a mucoid plague build up in the intestines stopping absorption & creating a home for fungus & parasites to breed. Oils hinder the flow of blood in the body creating artery build up.
The myth that olive oil is “heart healthy” as some studies suggests is a lie & research in this field needs to be properly understood.
Studies made on the Mediterranean diet have only shown that consuming olive oil lowers LDL cholesterol when it replaces animal fats, like butter & cheese, its all a perspective of olive oil is better than margarine…however that doesn’t mean its healthy.
But adding olive or other vegetable oils to an otherwise healthy diet only increases LDL levels. Barnard, Greger, Campbell, Esselstyn all have written great papers on this.
1 banana provides you with 105 calories, with only 4% of its calories from fat, which is similar to most fruits, with the exception of a few “fatty fruits”, like avocado & olives.
Per pound oil is calorie rich without being dense in nutrients:
•Vegetables – 100 calories per pound
•Fruits – 300 calories per pound
•Unrefined complex carbohydrates, potatoes, whole grains, legumes – 400-600 calories per pound
•Avocados – 750 calories per pound
•Refined complex carbohydrates – 1,200 calories per pound
•Sugar – 1,800 calories per pound
•Nuts & seeds – 2,800 calories per pound
•Oil – 4,000 calories per pound
You see adding oils to your salads stops absorption of the vegetables. Creates a high calorie meal & feeds bacteria, parasites & fungus. Confusing the stress receptors also. Making the brain seek more foods when it’s had plenty of empty calories.
Now aiming to not eat oils naturally means cutting out 95% of processed foods instantly! No supermarket junk, processed food, takeouts, candies, crisps, crackers, cartoon milks, ect….
Cooking at home without oil is SIMPLE. Just replace oil on salads with a oil free dressing or lemon juice. Ask for lemon juice no dressings when you are out. Replace oils with water or stock when you are sauté or making curries ect. Bake with water in a separate dish to create steam & coat vegetables with lemon juice & dried herbs or spices.
Oils are not whole foods or healthy. Even pig pooped argan oil! Or coconut oil. Have you watched how they make coconut oil? Have you tried washing oil of your hands? Try the cells?

Getting kids off hot chips that are salty and oily can be hard as the addiction is REAL!
slowly introduce homemade chips then move away from oils and salts. Here is the recipes for oils free homemade chippies that use sweet potato and kumara as a white potato alternative.
HOW TO MAKE:
Slice the potato’s to the shape your child likes. I left the skins on and did wedges. You may want to skin them and make them look like French fries 🍟
Line a baking tray with baking paper. Pre heat the oven to 175-200 degrees. Place the cut potato’s into a steamer for 5-10 minutes or until soft but not falling apart. Place the steamed potato’s into the lines tray. Season to taste or leave plain. I used Italian herbs 🌿 and lemon juice 🍋
You could use paprika and cumin and orange or dill and lemon or thyme and lemon or turmeric and orange or cinnamon and orange 🍊
Place a tray of plain water in the bottom of the oven. This is to create steam so the potato’s don’t dry out. Place the seasoned chippies in the tray into the oven.
The chippies will take 25-45 minutes depending on your oven and how much they were steamed. Half way through toss them and remove the baking paper to allow them to crisp slightly. You could add more lemon or orange juice if required.
Once they are golden but not burnt bring them out of the oven.
Serve with greens to help digestion and if you like to my raw tomato sauce from the recipe book. Or purred steamed carrots, touch of ginger and coriander with a little lime juice to make a dip for the chippies 🍠🥔
Slowly slowly the kids will come around to these homemade oil free dry roasted chippies. Once they do then move them to kumara, then sweet potato
