Extra Virgin Olive Oil may be a weight loss wonder that can make you extra lean

A couple of recent animal studies from Kobe Su University in Japan indicates Extra Virgin Olive Oil may have unique fat burning properties not share by other types of oil such as corn oil or regular olive oil.

The study focused on rats fed a high fat diet (30% fats) for 28 days. The rats were fed extra virgin olive oil, corn oil, or regular olive oil. At the end of 28 days, rats fed the extra virgin olive oil showed the lowest bodyfat, particularly brown fat, and highest concentrations of noradrenalin and adrenaline excretion, a key indicator in burning brown fat.

While this is far from a human trial, it may suggest that additional extra virgin olive oil in the diet may help burn stubborn brown fat.
