Yes, I Use Added Oils

I use about 15g of oil a day. When I fry up breakfast or dinner, I use about 8g of oil to cook. When I make a mixing bowl full of Chinese no-chicken salad, I use 8g of sesame oil. This totals (15g/day)(9cal/g) = 135 calories/day. I’m not worried about it. 15g of oil a day may increase my % of calories from fat from 20% to 25%. That still keeps me at a pre-industrial level 🙂
