Is 1kcal fry spray full of toxins?

"urgh full of toxic chemicals"

^^ This was me when I first saw 1 kcal fry spray. 

And I get this a lot from the ladies who see that I’ve used it in a recipe (like my Chicken Teriyaki, fish curry, and simple breakfast muffin recipes, to be specific)

In fact, here’s a message I got:

"Matt, my friend said not to use the 1 kcal fry spray because it's full of rubbish and that I'm better off using butter?"

I then asked her to have a look at the ingredients of the fry spray:

"Extra Virgin Olive Oil (53%), Water, Alcohol, Emulsifier: Sunflower Lecithin, Natural Flavouring, Thickener: Xanthin Gum"

^^^ Sounds 'toxic', right?

Now, look at the stuff you wash yourself with. The stuff you rub DIRECTLY onto your skin…

In my case (Liz Earle…):
"Aqua (water), Decyl glucoside, Acrylates copolymer, Rosa damascena (rose) flower water, Hydrogenated palm glycerides citrate"

^^^ Pronounce some of them…

My point is that if you're worried about 1 kcal fry spray…You're probably better off wearing a mask (even buildings give off toxins let alone the outside air pollutants) and never going outside to avoid the harmful effects of the sun.

And there's more…

Ever heard of Dihydrogen Monoxide?

Well, I'll give you a clue what it is…

You're told to drink at least 2 litres of the stuff every day to LIVE and flush out 'toxins'…

Yep, it's water.

Which probably tells us that the 'toxin police' skipped a few chemistry lessons…

Because EVERYTHING is a chemical.

So, to say that 'low fat' = 'chemical S#*! Storm' is...a little naïve.

After all, butter is pretty high in fat and contains chemicals like: Oleic, lauric, and linoleic acids…

But this doesn't mean butter is 'bad'.

What I'm leading up to is this:

Butter contains fat is pretty high in calories 

1 tablespoon of butter or even coconut oil (which I do love) has around 100 calories in...

Now, compare this to 1 kcal fry spray…

If you 'fry' or over cook anything, say, twice per day and switch to fry spray, you're going to save nearly 200 calories PER DAY

So if you're looking to LOSE body fat?

This simple swap (even without exercising or cutting our your usual late night munchies..)

May help you lose 20 lbs in a year!

Am I saying that you shouldn't use butter or coconut oil?

No, of course not.

I use them (quite a lot actually) but it depends on the OVERALL amount of food you eat over the day.

Just by swapping butter for 1 kcal fry spray when cooking my chicken wrapped in bacon...I could throw in a jacket potato with the meal, too…

Which would help keep me full and stop me 'nipping out to get some milk' and coming back with a 'Lindt coconut chocolate bar' instead.

PS. The deadline for the free 7-day trial where you'll get a personalised, simple to follow nutrition plan + 3 Personal Training Sessions with me so you can take the guesswork out of this weight loss and toning up stuff...

Is on Sunday with the flexible start date from Monday. 

I get that you're skeptical. And you should be. It's confusing with so much diet and exercise info out there.

Which is why I'm offer 10 ladies the chance to try my Shift Personal Training and Nutrition System for free.
