Oils for weight loss

I am lost when it comes to oil type. Vegetable, olive, canola, which is best for a weight loss goal. I mainly use oil to cook the odd thing I a frying pan, sometime bake.

I know some oils are best suited for different temperatures of cooking, but strictly speaking health benefits wise, which is best?

Help!

    whichever you find most satisfying per the amount. Sesame oil is cool bc it has such a strong flavor. I don’t cook w much oil bc I like to have avocados, coconut cream, salad dressing, and nuts.

    All oils have the same calories per gram and have twice the calories per gram as carbs. Measure carefully.

    I have canola, olive, and sesame oils in my pantry. My choice depends on the recipe.

    I use my silicon brush to oil my pan to reduce how much I am using. I used to have an atomizer but the oil would go rancid before I used it all.

    Skip the oil ! Our bodies don't need it. For most foods, cooking with water or baking works just as well. Ie. Chicken breast - season and put balsamic vinegar on them - pop in the oven

    Where does this stuff come from?

    who the hell knows ....

    anyways, use what you prefer. just measure it accurately.

    I'm often told coconut oil but I have not confirmed it.

    Decades of "fat is bad" movement we now know was not effective for weight loss. Old habits die hard.

    Even in the good old Weight Watchers exchange days, there were 3 fat exchanges for oil/butter for nutrition reasons.
