There are many ways to classify oils and fats, such as animal or plant based, flavor, percentage of unsaturated vs saturated fatty acids, etc. Another option to rate oils is by looking at their smoke point.
If you regularly cook, you know very well that there is no shortage of fats to chose from when shopping at the supermarket. They come either in liquid form (oil) or solid (lard, butter, margarine). There are many ways to classify oils and fats, such ...

I wish I had an answer that people wanted to hear. A miracle solution that makes twenty pounds fall off with little effort. It isn’t effortless, but it is worth it. I had to want to change my life to succeed.

Two things define you: Your patience when you have nothing and your attitude when you have everything. "Change is hard in the beginning, messy in the middle, and beautiful at the end."

Should you try a fast-mimicking diet? It seems like the answer is highly individual, but like all diets, unless you can maintain it for years, you will lose weight and then bounce right back up to were you started.
Tomorrow is the Jewish holiday of Yom-Kippur, known as the day of atonement. One interesting aspect of this holiday, is the complete fast imposed on believers. The fast starts at sundown tonight and ends 25 hours later. Muslims celebrate a month long...

Becoming an efficient home cook is something everyone should work on. Whether it's taking cooking classes, being more organized, cooking multiple meals at once for the whole week, or other tricks, find what works for you.

In an announcement to the public, the FDA admits that "healthy" needs an update. The FDA is inviting anyone with a stake in the game to chime in with comments.

If you think the term "healthy" should change, and have suggestions, submit a comment to the FDA.
Many food companies will say anything to get people to buy more of their product. This includes unsubstantiated health claims. Therefore, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates what companies are allowed to present to consumers, both in ads...
