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, tandoori chicken, and sweet potato curry recipe etc…)

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: Xanthan Gum”

^^^ Sounds ‘toxic’, right?

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

“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.

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 and 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….

One last thing…

If you’re like me and love your olive oil?

Well, one simple thing to do is just to put the olive in a spray bottle…

You’ll probably use less when cooking…

And look less like Jamie Oliver pouring a litre of olive oil on his pasta

whilst claiming that a sugar tax is the secret to solving obesity… (wink)
