Most oils are high in sodium, fat and concentrated calories – three major things we do not need in our bodies. We can get all the wholesome nutrients we need, without the empty calories, from a natural, plant-based diet. A major advantage of cooking without oil is the amount of unnecessary added fats you will be eliminating from your meals. If you’re working on losing weight or maintaining a healthier heart, you do not need the fat from oils. Cooking oils are packed with saturated fats which raise cholesterol levels in your blood. According to a research, the average man should not consume more than 30 grams of saturated fat a day, while the average woman should have less than 20 grams.
The event was held at Chennai Airport Marriage Hall and it was a part of the Healthy Lifestyle festival where exibitors were educating visitors on how they can lead a healthy lifestyle.
