My name is Leda and I am BRAND NEW to this forum. I am 22 years old (female) and 149 pounds. I feel so proud of everyone here that has lost weight in the first week, way to go! And I hope I can be one of them.
I just began using canola oil (100% pure grocery-store brand canola oil). I take 1 tablespoon an hour before eating. I began yesterday afternoon and was absolutely shocked at the IMMEDIATE change in my food cravings. I had the tblspn of oil an bour before eating my lunch/dinner (at 4pm) and DID NOT CRAVE anything the whole day!!! I am still shocked. But in order to not starve my poor body, I had a frozen Minute Maid lemonade at the cinema instead of popcorn around 8pm.
This morning, I woke up and ate a usual breakfast (2 scrambled eggs, english muffin, 2 pieces of turkey bacon). I took 1 tblspn of canola oil an hour afterwards. Even after going on a walk on a very sunny day (today), I came home and still have NO appetite when I would usually be ravenous. I AM SHOCKED!!!!
My one question so far is this: How does the canola oil work, when I see that 1 tblsp of it is 14 grams of fat? Wouldn't this help the body GAIN weight, along with the rest of the 'fats' I eat throughout the day?
So happy to be part of this group and thank you,
