I would be curious as to how people who are having 'oil' hinder their weight loss are eating otherwise. What are there total carbs per day? Grains?
Oil/fats always get the blame, but I would be willing to bet a large sum of money that their carb intake is above the 50-100 grams per day number. If you are eating high protein, high (good) fats and the right carbs--loads of veg, no grains and the right fruits, the weight loss will follow.
