Olive Oil is not the Only Healthy Oil

Avocado oil is popular because of its high smoke point. That makes avocado oil ideal for high-heat cooking.

Sesame oil, a staple of Asian cooking, is ideal for light sauteing.

Toasted sesame oil has a bold taste, and is often used as a season, and not as a cooking oil.

Flaxseed oil is a delicate oil that spoils quickly, so it must be stored in a dark, airtight container in the refrigerator. It is ideal for cold preparations such as salad dressings or dips.

Walnut oil becomes slightly bitter when heated, so it’s ideal for salad dressings, or for adding flavor to pasta salad.

Look for cold-pressed or unrefined oils, even though they are more expensive because they are less likely to be treated chemically. Keep fresh oils in the refrigerator or in dark containers away from heat. Refrigerated oils should be brought to room temperature before using.

If you Diet, Weight Training is Important

Recent studies have showed that people who were on a diet and did aerobic exercise (even just walking) were more likely to lose muscle than if they did no exercise at all.

Dieters who did weight training often lost more fat than those who dieted alone, and did not lose as much muscle as those who dieted and did aerobic exercise.

Losing muscle can lead to loss of strength and stability which can lead to falls.

Strength training doesn’t have to involve an expensive gym membership. Using resistance bands or lifting cans found in your pantry can be enough to keep muscles active and healthy.
