Data from a study conducted in the United States also show that the so-called A Mediterranean diet - and especially its daily presence of large quantities of olive oil - undoubtedly have a healthy effect and scientists recommend eating at least three spoons of olive oil a day .
If this effect is not enough, nutritionists are unanimous: when we eat olive oil, we satisfy hunger faster and consume less food as a whole. Good news for the weakening!
To make it easier to get the recommended amount of olive oil, you can put it not only in the salad but also to cook with it - of course, after choosing the right kind of salad.
