olive oil main source of fat?

Answered on November 29, 2013

So I don't really get a say in what I eat most of the time, but I take what I can get and it's mainly olive oil. I take around 3 - 4 tbsp a day.

I also take around a tbsp of butter and sometimes half an avocado. I try my best to eat alot of fatty meat at the table, but that isnt everyday.

Is this enough fat? And if not, should I consume more olive oil and butter? And if yes, how much?

Thank you.

of course, Matt is our resident olive oil fan. Pastured lard is within financial reach if you are willing to drive to the country, and similar in profile but with naturally added vitamin D.

If you feel fine then I say go for it. Olive oil is conveniently great on everything. I wouldn't suggest just eating oil straight up all the time, where you're at seems fine, but if you feel you need more maybe try eating some fatty meat or eggs. Everything in moderation! I have bulletproof tea with 2 tblsp butter or coconut oil in the morning or whenever I feel that I need it, but other than that I seem to get most of my fat from cooking with it or eating meat/eggs.

I'm all for a varied diet, but olive oil is one of things things you cannot go wrong with.

Olive oil is good for health. As its been used for various purposes in food,3 - 4 tbsp a day doesnt make any problem. If you are taking a=lots of butter and its not everyday then there is no problem. If you want to gain weight you can go for more fatty foods.

I don't look to add fat to my diet by spoonfuls of oil. For me eating Avocado is good as well as eggs, meat, some nuts, etc. I seem to get half my calories as fat but only small amounts by adding a bit of butter or other fat to the pan for cooking eggs, or by rendering a piece of bacon. You are better off eating a few olives than a tablespoon of oil.
