I am worried about weight gain and wondering if I can skip the olive oil part of the protocol?

There is no need to skip the EVOO because research shows that EVOO helps people feel full after a meal, which allows people to control their weight. This full feeling is associated with a derivative of oleic acid called OEA (Oleoiletanolamide).nnResearch also suggests that ingesting dietary fat stimulates epithelial cells of the small intestine and releases the OEA. Upon release, it engages sensory fibers of the vagus nerve to diminish food intake. The vagus nerve is the autonomic nervous system’s main nerve.nnThe absorptive epithelium of the small intestine converts the oleic acid contained within the olive oil in to OEA. OEA acts with receptors causing the feeling of satiety which affects meal size and reduces feeding frequency. In other words, daily consumption of EVOO can aid weight loss and improve metabolism.
