2. Less is more with cooking oil
If you’re choosing olive oil for your cooking, it’s certainly a smart choice because it has the healthy fats our bodies need. But there is such a thing as too much of a good thing. There are about 120 calories in every tablespoon of oil, even heart-healthy olive oil. So measure it out to keep from accidentally adding excessive calories to your meals. Whether you’re just pouring it in the pan or onto your salad, if you take a moment to measure things out, you’ll be shaving extra calories off your meals and may soon start seeing those results you were hoping to see.
