Dr Oz: Walnut Oil, Coconut Oil & Canola Oil: Good News About Fat

Dr Oz said that you can peel off pounds and even build better bones by eating fat – good fats.  This is why Doctor Oz did a segment called The Good News About Fat.  By eating certain oils, you can improve your health and even reverse signs of aging.

Dr Oz: Walnut Oil for Belly Fat

Dr Oz said that you can combat Belly Fat by eating Walnut Oil, which is high in omega 3 fats that help you to feel full Dr Oz The Good News About Fatfaster.  You can use Walnut Oil in salad dressings, or you can even find mayonnaise made out of Walnut Oil now.  However, Dr Oz did warn that you have to keep it in the fridge because Walnut Oil can go bad fast otherwise.

Dr Oz: Coconut Oil for Wrinkles

Dr Oz said that as you get older, you skin gets thinner and sags more and more into the tissue beneath your skin.  If you had subcutaneous fat, which is made of saturated fat, it is like putting a pad under your skin to keep it looking flat and wrinkle free.  Dr Oz said that Coconut Oil can also help Heart Disease.  So cut down on saturated fats from animals, and use Coconut Oil instead.  Of course, you still have to use it sparingly because it is still a saturated fat.

Dr Oz: Canola Oil for Curved Back & Kyphosis

Dr Oz said that for people who are concerned about getting the curve in their back as they age or Kyphosis, this is caused by bones getting weaker and weaker.  You should use Canola Oil or CLA because it makes it easier for your bones to absorb calcium.  This is especially important for peri-menopausal, menopausal and post-menopausal women.  Dr Oz said that canola oil is great for sauteing food, as long as you avoid really high heat like a deep fryer.

    How does one find out the amount of canola or walnut oil to use on a daily basis. Just knowing it does certain things is not very beneficial without having some idea as to amount needed to achieve the benefits. Could I be provided with an estimated quantity? Thank you? E. McGraw

  2. says

    Hi E McGraw! That is such a good point, I wish that Dr Oz has told us daily amounts for all of the oils. Unfortunately, I really am not sure and would not want to misinform you. I would suspect that you do not want to eat too much of any of the oils, because even if they are healthy oils, too much fat at the end of the day is still not good for you.

  3. says

    It should be noted that canola oil is high in omega 6 fats which have been implicated in cancer. Most Americans consume too many omega 6 oils and not enough omega 3 oils. CLA is great but I would not recommend canola oil, especially if it purchased off of the grocers shelves, as the processing removes much of the beneficial ingredients.

    Cathy, I am sorry but I really cannot recall a Dr Oz Show about a walnut diet. Do you remember what the recipe was for? A cake? Muffins? Something else? If you can give me more details, I will do my best to locate it for you!

    Where does doctor oz buy his vitamins. He quotes prices and I find them on line for much more and the strength is much less

    Walnut oil and all the other oils Dr. Oz spoke about; take one to two table spoons a day.

    I have been having several tbs of coconut oil a day now for a few years, and my cholesterol is great, and in fact, has lowered. I also started making sure to get one tbs of olive oil a day (raw, not cooked), so that has helped as well. But having a lot of coconut oil has been all good for me. I started on it due to a horrible rash thing I got on my eyelid that would not go away, despite months of trying different things from my derm, and going in for these allergy tests. So, got on Google spent hours and hours and hours and finally was lead to coconut oil. Took care of it in two days. I’ve been hooked on the stuff since then. Internally as well as extenally. It makes a great facial moisturizer. I put it on thinly, and a minute or so later I wipe off excess. It sinks in and does not get on the pillow. Can’t wear it during the day as it has no sunscreen. Great stuff, and I’m glad it is finally going to go mainstream. Oh, and it helped my dads Athletes’ foot too. He’s a runner.

    You can get coconut oil at Sprouts, TJs, Wild Oats, etc. Make sure to get unrefined.

    Great for cooking, but it does have a coconutty flavor to the food. That’s great for some things, not for others. But it remains stable to cook with so I love it to sautee. Great in cookies, banana bread, etc.

    I can’t stop singing the praises of coconut oil and have driven my friends nuts for years. Now I finally feel they will believe me.

    I recently purchased Walnut and Coconut oil at Wegman’s Market, you’ll find the Coconut oil in the organic section of the store.

    Canola oil is a partially hydrogenated fat hence it has trans fats. Holistic nutritionists go out of their way to discourage its use. I also noticed that the bottle of canola oil shown by Dr. Oz had a clear bottle. Oils that are exposed to light, oxygen or high temperatures are rancid oils. Anytime that people aren’t sure about a specific recommendation, it’s always a good idea to do a search on Dr. Mercola’s website. He had a biochemist comment on canola oil as being a “bad choice” for a cooking oil way back in 2000. I agree that walnut oil and coconut oil are excellent healthy oils. I use walnut oil together with flaxseed oil and an unfiltered organic olive oil that I get from an importer who brings in 5 litre cans of the oil from select growers in Greece. I live in southwestern Ontario.

  11. Cathleen says

    Dr. Oz recommends using coconut oil in cooking. I have a high cholesterol problem. According to the American Heart Assoc., coconut oil is a food to stay clear of. Since it is a saturated fat and heart patients are to stay away from it, why is he suggesting we use it in our diets.

  12. says

    I have bought Walnut Oil now at Tom Thumb and also at Kroger! Still trying to find Safflower Oil at a reasonable price somewhere…

  13. Delta says

    Prior to taking the coconut oil, walnut oil and canola oil, I would like to know what dosage I should take each day, whether it is in capsule form or liquid form.

    Thank you so very much, I appreciate all the health benefits you provide.
