To add to my last post on the benefits and problems with various cooking oils such as olive and coconut, I thought I'd make mention of another oil, Grapeseed Oil, which contains significant amounts of the omega-9, oleic acid.
A recent study in the journal Cell Metabolism cited research findings from the University of California at Irvine which found that infusing oleic acid into the intestines of rats enabled the release of oleoylethanolamide (OEA), a lipid that activates nerves in the small intestine that are responsible for signaling the brain that the stomach is full.
Oleic Acid is found in olive oil but to a greater degree (about 7 times as abundant) in Grapeseed oil so you might want to try sauteing your meals in Grapeseed oil periodically to help increase the feeling of fullness between meals.
Additional benefits associated with Grapeseed oil are abundant including a possible boost to memory and mental function as well as an association with lowered blood pressure. In fact it may be the oleic acid which causes blood pressure drops which are associated with olive oil; however, this is not completely substantiated.
Of course if you decide to try using Grapeseed oil in your cooking simple measures can be taken to further increase your task of weight management. Eating slowly is by far the easiest of them all as there is a major association with speed eaters and being overweight.
