Could This So Called 'Healthy' Oil Be A Weight Gain Culprit?

Sugar has long been thought of as the biggest secret additive in food that has been causing unwanted weight gain. However, experts now say that this oil is a major threat to obesity rates - even more so than sugar! Soybean oil is chosen by food manufacturers as a 'healthier' alternative to other oils that are high in saturated or bad-for-you fat. But soybean oil is now getting a bad rap, as lab studies have shown it causes more weight gain than fructose. In one study, mice who were fed a diet rich in soybean oil gained 12% more weight than ones who ate a high sugar diet. The mice eating soybean oil also developed fattier livers and diabetes. The oil has properties which cause increased appetite and cravings for junk food. The animals diets were akin to the average human diet, and they ingested an amount of soybean oil similar to the average for humans. So where is this fattening, unhealthy oil lurking? It may not be in your pantry as a cooking oil, but it is in countless processed foods, margarine, salad dressing and candy bars. Even foods that are seemingly healthy can have soybean oil on their ingredient list. It's not potentially dangerous if eaten in very low quantities, but shouldn't be consumed frequently if you're trying to lose weight and improve your health. What are your thoughts?
