I noticed that whenever I incorporate canola, sunflower, or corn oil into my cooking/meals, my digestion is much better, energy is steadier, and I experience much greater satiety. This is in complete contrast to the days of greater sucrose, fruit, and saturated fat consumption – I would be hungry almost all the time, and my seemingly large and satiating meals would keep me full for 2 hours at most. Why is that? I was under impression that vegetable oil was the dietary devil? Anyone has any thoughts on the matter?
Your satiety is due to your fat content. All fats do that. But it is still better to use olive oil, coconut oil and butter and the saturated fats in meat. People are ingesting too much omega 6 nowadays, plus they quickly go rancid and produce free radicals in the body.
Rich, I think you missed the point. It’s an interesting question, and one which warrants further discussion. Mayonnaise does it for me too. A combination of mayo (sunflower oil based) and butter with a meal beats the equivalent amount in butter alone for filling me up.
