Where's there a nutritionist when you need one...


Up against the wall with the homeopaths and crystal healers, if there's any justice. You want a dietician, someone with qualifications. *Anyone* can call themselves a nutritionist. Hello, Gillian McKeith!


Ahh, yes, of course. My mistake. Probably overwhelmed to find someone here from Wallsend.

The overall message remains - eat less fats and oils, no more than 35% of your total energy intake in a day.


Excellent. I'm off to spoon down some sugar

Anyone know how sunflower oil (my personal favourite) fits into this debate?

Are we to undertand that upping sugar intake to lower the PERCENTAGE of fat in the diet is a good thing, then? Most excellent!

Presumably you could do the same thing with beer.

sugar should be no more than 10% of your energy intake.....
( Non milk extrinsic sugars to be exact )

sunflower oil is one of the good ones, but olive and rapeseed are possibly better.

My GP told me off for using olive oil said it was too high in Cholesterol.
Now I use rice bran oil http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rice_bran_oil

I didn't think dietry cholesterol translated into blood levels

No Ros, you are right, cholesterol in food does not translate to cholesterol in the blood. That would be far too logical and sensible

The things that affect cholesterol are : ( no particular order )

overall fat and oil intake - < 35% energy intake
fibre and wholegrain intake - at least 3 portions a day
fruit and veg intake - 5 a day
the amount of exersise you do - at least 30 mins
your genes - hard to change these !
your weight - aim for a healthy weight BMI 20-25

Hope this helps....

and 12 bore - your GP needs shooting for such wrong advice

Sunflower oil..... hmm... looking through notes from course (re-Diabetes).... worst are lard, then butter, then sunflower oil, then olive oil, and rapeseed oil is best - with a couple of others (including walnut oil) being on a par with rapeseed.

Hello everyone,

Unfortunately, living in Italy, I say that every year comes to a fraud inherent the olive oil.
This year we thought the NYT. An article that has sparked much controversy here in Italy. But it must be said that the issue of fraud concerns not only the olive oil, but also pasta and canned tomatoes.
Also a problem for the tourists (who do not know the warnings that we use consumers) who are eating the food that of "Italian" has very little!

For the cholesterol problem I know that extra virgin oil has many beneficial qualities and consumed raw is good!
It is not good for frying though!
