Did you know that olive oil could curb hunger? Yeah, you heard it right. Olive oil is rich in a special appetite- controlling kind of fat. A fat that may help lose weight. Gosh! It’s pretty amazing. No wonder some people drink VCO oil. I’ve tried it one time but it’s yucky. LOL! According to the Wikipedia, olive oil has a higher proportion of monosaturated fats in the diet is linked with a reduction in the risk of coronary heart disease. Evidence suggests that eating about two tablespoon (23grams) of olive oil daily may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease due to the monounsaturated fat in olive oil. Olive oil also contains oleic acid that triggers the production of oleoylethanolamide (OEA), another fatty substance. OAE then finds its way to nerve endings that carry a hungry curbing message to the brain. So I guess we should include this in our daily diets. Huh! Well, I’ll see if I can bravely eat 23 grams of olive oil. Hehehe!
