How to Cut 31 Grams of Saturated Fat from Your Diet (Page 3)

Cook with Oil

2. Cook with Oil Instead of Butter

Whether you are cooking or baking, subbing canola oil for butter will save you 6 grams of saturated fat per tablespoon. One tablespoon of butter contains 7 grams of saturated fat, while the same amount of canola oil delivers just 1 gram. And 1 tablespoon of olive oil has 2 grams.

Overall, an easy way to guide your oil choice is to look for one that's liquid at room temperature. That means it’s mostly made of healthy unsaturated fats; solid ones, such as coconut oil and palm oil, are mostly saturated fat.
