I just read an article on Everyday Health and it was on healthy cooking oils. I was a bit unhappy with it, and found it a little out of touch. I have done a lot of research on oils and of course there are always two (or more) camps on things. But I was surprised at some of the oils they said were good and one they said was bad.

Here is the article:

And here are their recommendations, but I will say I do not agree 100%
Start your cooking oil selection with plant-based oils like:

Olive oil
Peanut oil
Canola oil
Sunflower oil
Soybean oil
Flaxseed oil
Corn oil
Avocado oil

Next choose from a variety of seed- and nut-based oils, many of which make tasty bases for salad dressings and marinades, including:

Almond oil
Hazelnut oil
Sunflower oil
Grapeseed oil
Peanut oil
Sesame oil
Walnut oil

Cut Back on Unhealthy Cooking Oils

Some oils contain higher levels of saturated fat, which is considered the "bad" or unhealthy fat because it can clog arteries and lead to high cholesterol levels and increased risk of heart disease.

Avoid these oil varieties, some of which are so high in saturated fat that they have more of it than some meat sources:

Coconut oil
Palm oil
Palm kernel oil
Safflower oil

What do you guys think? What oils do you cook with and why?

It certainly shows the old style wrong thinking. I think a number of us that use the oils that they have said that are bad and have improved our cholesterol LDL's proves their error. I can't understand why they would choose some of the worst oils over the naturally healthy oils to place in the diet. This is like the oil and grain carb diets that have led to increased disease and diabetes. The only thing I can come up with is they made that highly refined stuff and now they have to build a customer base to buy it. That thinking has caused much of America's health decline beginning at the same time those products hit our store shelves. What I can't understand is, Why would the medical field endorse it and push it ? Are they to building their customer base ? There seems to be more questions going unanswered than real solutions to a Healthy population. Well are least many of us have found the truth and are using the real improvements, and have proven the worth in our diets, bodies and medical test.

I think I use very little oil at all mostly because most of my cooking is done in the toaster oven. Currently I have olive oil coconut oil and canola oil in the house. When I fry something, unless it's a large amount, its usually in butter. I will probably not buy canola oil again. I would like to try some nut oils. I think these experts(?) Base their recommendations on a rate of consumption much higher than what the average person uses.

GabbyPA 2016-05-01 08:43:11 -0500 Report

Oh I have changed on this point. I now eat a low carb and high fat diet and it took me a while to get around this thinking as I listed above. It is being proven over and over that saturated fats do NOT clog the arteries.

Now I do not cook with olive oil. It denatures and so I use it in cold applications only.

I eat coconut oil every day. Good stuff. Those saturated fats are medium chain and very good for us. I also use toasted almond oil, walnut oil and macadamia nut oil. I have used avocado oil, but would rather just eat the avocado.

I do not consume seed oils any more. I do still use sesame seed oil on occasion for the flavor.

Liorascs 2015-03-04 07:51:49 -0600 Report

I use mostly coconut oil, for cooking, my hair and my skin. I also use olive oil, some of the spray oils, and occasionally sesame oil for taste. What I am cooking sometimes determines which oil. i use. But I am a big fan of coconut oil, just make sure it is cold pressed, unrefined and chemical free. Coconut oil is also good for my cats in very small amounts, I rub a little on their fur. It is supposed to help with hairballs.

mcmbkk 2016-05-01 10:54:41 -0500 Report

Easier to put a little of the liquified oil ( melts in 10 seconds in the microwave) in their food a few times a week rather than on their fur which will rub off on your furniture!

I think the oils are very confusing. How do you know what to cook your meat in or if you want sauté chicken and add vegetables to make a light dish. I'm using olive oil and canola oil. I'm confused with the rest of the oils and learning to cook as a diabetic is hard enough. I thought I was doing a good job and now I'm not so sure.

haoleboy 2015-03-02 20:33:59 -0600 Report

Olive Oil is certainly good and unless you are using a whole lot a little Canola isn't really going to affect your diabetes.
I use Olive Oil, butter and coconut oil for sauteing and stir frys.

I retract my previous statement regarding peanut oil…it seems to be a very healthy oil…I never really researched it because I don't use it…will be more careful next time and not go from my flawed memory…I really need to see if my liver can teach my brain to dump…trying to store way too much up there!!!

GabbyPA 2015-02-28 14:17:45 -0600 Report

Whew! I use it for high heat cooking and in some baked goods. Sometimes that extra bit of nut oil is better than olive oil

grantville 2015-02-26 18:35:06 -0600 Report

I never use oil, instead I use pam, you spray the pan and its healthier.

grantville 2015-02-27 16:52:12 -0600 Report

I've been diabetic since age 10 and wear an insulin pump. I try to eat healthy and stay in shape. The sugar is under control, but I have ALS.

GabbyPA 2015-02-27 14:31:37 -0600 Report

You need to read the ingredients in your Pam. The first 3 are (in order) Canola oil, Palm Oil and Coconut Oil and it also has Soy in it. It is not healthier, it is just controlled better. I like to measure my oil so I know how much I am using. A sprits of Pam really is hard to measure.

The only reason they can say 0 fat is because if you use 1/4 of a second spray, you don't get enough to use. How many of us do that with our spray oils?

haoleboy 2015-02-26 19:21:42 -0600 Report

being devoid of nutritional benefit does not equate to "healthy".
butter, coconut oil and or olive oil will actually improve your health.

When your diabetic oils will increase the sugar and weight

haoleboy 2015-02-26 20:31:50 -0600 Report

if that is the case … you are eating the wrong oil (fat).
Fat does not make you fat when part of a low carb lifestyle, nor do they increase you blood glucose levels. In fact … low carb / high fat is a great way to lose weight and control glucose (and also to maintain weight loss).
This is based on my personal experience of having lost 165 pounds and having maintained that loss for several years now. Also good for your cholesterol ratios.


haoleboy 2015-02-26 20:51:20 -0600 Report

I have never seen a dietitian … I certainly could never afford one and not covered by my insurance … but then … I don't need a dietitian to tell me I lost 1/2 my body weight. I do see my doctor regularly though … her advice "you seem to know what you are doing, so keep doing what you are doing".
My A1c is 5.8, my weight and cholesterol ratios are ideal and blood pressure is normal … and I feel great!

haoleboy 2015-03-02 20:57:08 -0600 Report


A typical day … if I do a good job of bargain hunting and budgeting my daily diet would be:
2pm - homemade muesli with yogurt (Greek if I can afford it), thinly sliced ham or roast beef with cream cheese. Kosher dills, green olives and/or Greek Pepperoncini.
5:30 pm - A LARGE salad (romaine, Spinach and/or kale with tomatoes, red onion, mushrooms (if affordable), a handful of sunflower seed kernels or pepitas and a mayonnaise or Miracle Whip Based homemade salad dressing.
8 pm - A stir fry of some sorts … Chicken usually with an assortment of fresh veggies.
Some nights I go "vegetarian" based on my "lunch".

Drinks are coffee, tea or water. I eat canned sardines and kippered herring regularly as well as hard cheeses and cottage cheese (4% fat).
I try and stay at or below 50 grams of carbs daily … I'm supposed to eat about 2400 kcals a day but that usually doesn't happen. My goal is 90 -100 grams of protein but like the calories usually fall short.
1 day a week (today as a matter of fact) I fast for 24 hours.

I am not trying to lose any more weight (lost 165) but trying to maintain. Which is not as easy as I thought it would be.
As I said I try to eat as close to this as I can … some months the sales don't work for me or I don't budget too well (like buying Coke Zero)… in that event I just fast a bit more often.


jayabee52 2015-02-26 20:13:24 -0600 Report

the oils may increase one's weight but oils (and fats, like protein) do not increase one's BG levels.

I like to use olive, coconut, avocado, peanut for high heat. I love sesame, and walnut. I love the different flavors they impart in food. I use them not only for cooking but for my skin and hair also. I stay away from vegetable, and canola, and far away from soy. Soy gives me hot flashes and haven't heard anything good about soy based products for American women. I was at the store yesterday and saw organic palm oil. Very interested in learning about that one. Oils are hard to try, they cost a bit of money especially if you add the word ''organic'' to it. Buying a whole bottle just to try and then not like it can feel like a waste. But then if you remember that if you have dry skin, try using it after a hot shower. Dry hair, a hot oil treatment costs way more in a salon. So that may make the price easier to swallow. No pun intended. Also, co-buy it with some friends and give it a try. It's well worth the trouble. They are very good.

BrownSweetness 2015-02-26 11:45:01 -0600 Report

I use canola, olive and corn oils to cook with because, I heard that they are healthier for you. But, I wonder why the article says that coconut oil is unhealthy.

I use canola, but sometimes I use vegetable oil, which I don't know too much about, and I use olive oil for saute my peppers and onions. I don't understand why would coconut oil be bad for you?????

I don't agree about the coconut oil I grew up seen my grand parents and mother making coconut oil from the coconut and bottle it out they always use it on every thing and all over the body too on Saturday as a kid we use to look forward to drink the coconut water me and my sisters and after our hair was wash all six girls was grease with coconut oil. Just what I know they always say it the healthiest oil .

Most nut oils are very healthy…peanut oil is the exception…bad bad bad…and I have done MUCH reading on the subject…the difference shouldn't really surprise anyone..because a peanut is just a nut by name…not actually a nut..

Pegsy 2015-02-25 18:32:13 -0600 Report

Hmmm. So…is peanut butter a problem? Without added sugar, of course.

haoleboy 2015-02-25 18:55:32 -0600 Report

peanut oil is high in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats ( a good thing) but contains no Omega-3 (not so good) there are health benefits to using it but you would be better off going with another oil.
Peanut butter is a well-balanced source of energy being low in carbs, moderate to high in protein and high in healthy fats. IMO a great choice for diabetics … as long as you can control yourself and eat a modest portion … something I have a problem doing.


mcmbkk 2016-05-01 11:00:33 -0500 Report

I read that the problem with peanut oil is the processing…as well as bleaching and deodorizing agents…not so much the oil itself…I guess if you can find a brand that isn't processed that way…but because I don't use it I haven't bothered to check to see if any exist…I have a problem with all nut butters…I wish a serving size was 1/4 of the jar..

OLive oil is very very very healthy..Provided it is 100% pure olive oil…if the bottle doesn't say 100% on it…it is a mix…I recently read an article saying that olive oil becomes unhealthy when heated…I have read many more that say this is untrue…I never cook with olive oil because a doubt remains…I sometimes splash a little on my veggies right before taking them out of the pan but that is it…until I am 100% convinced it is okay to cook with it I wont..but this doesn't subtract from the health benefits of the oil itself..enjoy over salads!!!

OK everyone, what's wrong with canola oil? Thought I was supposed to use that one. I try not to use a lot of any oil,because it's not good for the kidneys, but I thought I at least had the right one on hand If I'm going to consume fat, I'd just as soon it be butter,slathered over something..anything.

CoralFaye 2015-02-25 13:32:28 -0600 Report

Gabby, Thanks for sharing this information. I am discouraged because I thought olive oil would be a good oil to start with, but the fat count is outrageous. I am trying to use unsweetened applesauce and the whites of eggs when it calls for oil in a recipe. Does that sound wierd?

GabbyPA 2015-02-25 17:52:42 -0600 Report

Apple sauce does cut the fat, but will increase the carb count. So it depends really on what your goal is. I have done that in the past and it works great, keeps things moist, but now I don't use apple sauce much at all. I made a whole bunch a couple of years ago and we are still working through it.

RosalieM 2015-02-25 14:34:16 -0600 Report

Do not use applesauce to replace oil. It raises blood sugar. You can use ground flax seed to replace oil if you want to.
It takes half the calories in the oil/fat to digest it so applesauce and oil are the same calorie wise.
Apple sauce raises blood sugar and oil does not.

mcmbkk 2016-05-01 11:05:16 -0500 Report

I'm confused about ground flax seed. I was sprinkling a teaspoon on different things but it seemed to elevate my numbers a little. Hard to tell exactly. Then, Dr. Bernstein's book put seeds in the no list?

CoralFaye 2015-02-25 14:48:47 -0600 Report

Thank you RoasalieM - I thought by using unsweetened applesauce I would be cutting down on fats…I didn't even take into consideration the sugar aspect. I am enrolled in this diabetes class and so far we have been concentrating on fats and calorie intake. I think I am going to start looking at carbs and sugars also. Do you know what the numbers would be for carbs and sugars per day? Again, thank you for your input.

GabbyPA 2015-02-25 17:54:36 -0600 Report

That goal is something you will need to work out with your doctor based on your current numbers, goals and what you can tolerate. The ADA recommends up to 150 grams a day. Many of us try to keep it under 100, but it depends on so many things.

Hi Gabby,
You question the experts! How cool is that. I love it. I have done a great deal of studying of oils to as I teach it too. Omega 6 needs to be figured in choice of oils. Omega six is in many plant oils, not coconut however, I don't believe. This is important as food processors use plant oils (omega six) in processed foods.
People who eat processed foods get their Omega 6 and Omega 3 out of balance. This does not happen with a diet of whole foods. The balance of Omega 3 and Omega 6 is naturally occurring in whole foods. Way out of balance in a processed food diet. The consequences of this imbalance is very serious.

GabbyPA 2015-02-25 13:24:50 -0600 Report

I have been taught to avoid the Omega 6 and focus on Omega 3's. I take coconut oil for many other things, but should check it.

I don't know how "expert" they are, but I certainly do question everything. Sometimes without warrant, but it's always good to keep an open mind. Besides, being a devils advocate can be fun.

Hi Gabby, I use canola oil to cook with all the time. I use it because I heard it is one of the best oils to use when u have heart desease which I have had for a long time and thinking about possibly having a heart attack like my parents and my sister had scares me to death so I try to eat as healthy as I possibly can. R eggs still real bad for eating or can u eat more of them… I know everything in moderation but I know yrs ago they said it caused high cholesterol in ppl. What do u think? Thanks for the article.

I keep hearing or reading that EVOO is a lot better than canola oil! We know EVOO comes from olives but, is there a canola plant? EVOO is much closer to natural to me. The only issue is it has a lower heat index but, I don't wait for it to start smoking to begin cooking. I just made some spaghetti sauce using EVOO, big chunks of onions, bell pepper, garlic, celery real tomatoes & a few other ingredients including a quality red wine. I don't eat spaghetti noodles so it's safe for anyone. Thanx for the article. Also, I believe he's a real doctor and not an actor so he may not be as animated as an actor! I forgive him .

GabbyPA 2016-05-01 08:46:40 -0500 Report

Read my comment above at the top. My views have changed a lot on this topic. A whole LOT.

Canola oil denatures as it is heated and so I do not use it any longer. Olive oil does the same thing, but it is okay to use in cold meals as long as you are getting cold pressed.

Cholesterol in eggs had been blamed for high chol, but now that bit of information has been shown to be false. ~ and this from Mayo clinic ~

It has been shown that high lipid levels comes from carbohydrates, (of all things!) The only time dietary chol (like in eggs or cheese) is a factor is if the person has a history of familial hypercholesteremia (as did my 1st wife) and then any additional chol is not recommended. btw my first wife - now my ex - had a 5 way bypass not long after becoming my ex she was unable to take statins and so she was out of luck she did survive and she is now driiving a18 wheeler with her "new" hubby.

I call myself reducing the amount of soy intake: now I read the label of Best Foods mayo that I just bought from Costco to find that soybean oil is the FIRST ingredient on the label!
I guess I have to start making my own. Does anyone have a recipe that tastes like Best Foods? I despise Miracle Whip; too sweet! I don't have a sweet tooth.
Maybe I'll go to 'Eating' to find a recipe? Ohh, I'm type 2!
Also, a tip if you use EVOO, which I do; If the label says imported from any foreign country, think about this; It is pressed, bottled & shipped to a warehouse where it sits for how long we don't know. Then, it ships overseas for how long on the water? To another warehouse where it sits. Then it ships to a distributor where it sits! Then it ships to our local market where again it sits in the warehouse. Then it sits on the shelf till we finally bring it home where it sits while we use small increments. EVOO loses it's benefits the longer it sits right? Even in the darker bottles. I live in Long Beach, Cal. and I get my EVOO from Temecula Olive Oil Co. Which is just outside of San Diego. Most of the shipping is eliminated that way. At least it's stateside!
Oh yeah; EVOO is like men, the fresher the better? Maybe? Even the aged ones,, like me? LOL
BTW; I only use EVOO to quickly stir-fry my vegges or eggs or on salads with a red wine vinegar.
I just made some spaghetti sauce using EVOO and it's more than yummy! I don't eat pasta any more! My sauce has big chunks of veggies plus real tomatoes that I smushed,,yay!
Ps: I don't know how to post a picture, plus I'm not as cute as I use to be!
I heard/read that IMGR is the best?
