I recently was reading about all the benefits of different oils such as canola, oil, and flax. I was also reading the benefits of higher fat diets from authors such as DiPasquale. (Higher anabolic hormone levels). Even Dan John talks about how great sipping oil is (even if I’m gulping it) I’m also in the process of gaining some weight myself. Then it hit me while I was trying to cram down a quart of brown rice and kidney beans, next to an equally large bowl of chili. Oil is so calorie dense. One cup of oil comes in at a whopping 2,000 calories. Then I started adding this stuff into my diet. I could drink a cup of the stuff and not feel full, fantastic. Gone are the days of a completely bloated stomach. My weight is continuing to go up steadily again as well.
What is so awesome about drinking oil is that it is so easy to do. Its by far the easiest way I can think of to take in a plethora of healthy calories in no time flat. I always hear of people complaining about their stomachs being too full to eat more. Although I have never had much trouble eating upwards of 5,000 calories, this was pretty neat.
What is even better is that oil won’t make you go broke. It isn’t an expensive supplement weight gainer. I make a canola oil/olive oil mixture myself. Canola oil is dirt cheap. Olive oil is also relatively inexpensive and has a great price/calorie ratio. Canola is loaded with omega 3s and oil has the antioxidant squalene. Its a win win situation.
My body responds pretty well to higher fat diets, so it works well for me. However, I was wondering what others think of drinking oil and if anyone has tried it? Does the idea of drinking a nice tall glass of oil make you cringe? If it doesn’t, try it out and tell me what you think. Its working really well for me.
