Olive OylMaybe the magic bullet for health and weight loss was cleverly hidden in a cartoon strip:  spinach and olive oil.

With evidence mounting that fat is indeed our friend, perhaps it’s time to chug-a-lug some fatty goodness in the name of health … and weight loss.

Experiment for yourself with this recommendation for taking a dose of olive oil from Lance over at LiveStrong:

  • add a teaspoon of EVOO to your morning juice (which assumes juice is a good choice, and probably not if you have a weight problem);
  • add a teaspoon to a glass of lemon water before lunch;
  • take a teaspoon in the afternoon to stave off snack attacks.

Since I like the tast of olive oil and don’t mind taking a spoonful now and then, I think I will try this as an alternative to a fat snack like nuts.  I will venture forth, do some scouting, and report back.  You do the same and let me know your results!

To your health ~
