A "super-oil" that's possibly healthier than olive oil?

Pretty much everybody these days has heard the news about how healthy olive oil is for you... It's good for your heart, lowers blood pressure, cools inflammation and extends life span -- it's one of the reasons why the Mediterranean lifestyle is so good for you.

But there's ANOTHER oil that runs circles around olive oil in terms of health benefits, but almost nobody knows about it for some odd reason.  It's native to the rainforests of Australia and was used by the Aborigines for thousands of years before being "discovered" by European settlers.

It's got a smooth, buttery, almost sweet taste with a beautiful, golden appearance -- you can even drink it straight. Let's see you try THAT with olive oil!  In fact, it's SO delicious and versatile that famous chefs from all around the world are using it as their secret weapon.

Use this oil and you'll get a HUGE metabolic advantage when it comes to boosting energy, thinking faster and getting rid of those extra inches that seem to keep piling on as you age.  This "super oil" has 3 MAJOR metabolic advantages that are just as good, and possibly even better than olive oil:

Metabolic Advantage #1

It's is loaded with a fat that's SO healthy that even the low-carb AND low-fat authors agree you should get more of it.  I am talking about monounsaturated fat or MUFA... the SAME beneficial fat found in olive oil. However, this "super oil" comes out on top containing about 10% MORE monounsaturated fat.

While the monounsaturated fat is where much of the blood-pressure-, cholesterol-lowering and life-extending benefits come from, this special fat is also a metabolic SUPER-fuel.  That's because of its relatively simple chemical structure, allowing it to be burned in your mitochondria (your cellular energy-producing factories) MUCH more easily.

That means MORE energy, better mental performance, a more stable mood, less hunger and less unwanted fat in those trouble spots.

Metabolic Advantage #2

Most people now know that having a proper balance of omega-3 to omega-6 fats is CRITICAL to staying healthy, young, full of energy and keeping those aches and pains at bay.  Too many omega-6s sets off a rampaging wild fire of inflammation that wreaks havoc on virtual every organ, tissue and cell in your body, totally destroying your metabolism and forcing you to get fat.

And while olive oil is decent in this department with only 9.8% of its content being omega-6s, this "super oil" comes in at a puny 1.7%!  That's important because the average person gets TWENTY TIMES more omega-6s than they should, so the LAST thing you need is more.

Metabolic Advantage #3

Olive oil's Achilles' heel is that it can be very vulnerable to oxidation and rancidity under the wrong conditions -- everything from heat to light to oxygen can damage the precious fats that it contains, killing some of the nutritional value and ruining its taste a bit too.

If this occurs in any oils, these rancid, oxidized fats also create free radicals that damage your cellular membranes, blood vessels and even your DNA -- none of which do ANY favors for your metabolism.  Those pesky free radicals literally "rust" you from the inside out, much in the same way an apple or guacamole turns brown when exposed to the air.

This "super oil", however, is light resistant and doesn't turn rancid over time and is very shelf stable due to the tremendous amounts of antioxidants it has.  For example, this "super oil" has nearly 5x the amount of tocopherol, a powerful antioxidant, when compared to olive oil.

So what IS this mysterious "super oil"?

Almost nobody talks about this hidden gem and it's a shame, because the list of metabolic benefits is endless...

I am talking about macadamia nut oil.

To be clear, olive oil isn't bad for you at all -- it's actually fantastic -- but pound for pound, macadamia nut oil is possibly even better for you -- it tastes great, it's more versatile for cooking and is much healthier and tastier for baking uses.  I absolutely LOVE a fresh extra virgin olive oil, and it will ALWAYS have a place in my kitchen almost daily... but macadamia nut oil is the new "secret agent" healthy oil that most people don't know about.

Plus, it also gives you an enormous metabolic advantage -- very important if you've had trouble getting rid of stubborn fat, particularly around your belly, hips, thighs and butt.

This next page here will show you 3 other foods that can also give you a metabolic advantage, fight aging, burn off stubborn fat, and give you a nice jolt of sustained energy to power your day.

Oh, one more tip -- try to buy only organic macadamia nut oil that's been cold-pressed mechanically -- this preserves as much of the nutritional value as possible without damaging those healthy fats.

So give it a try... you're gonna love it!

P.S. Food #2 that you'll find on this next page is also absolutely loaded with the SAME type of super-fuel as macadamia nut oil. You can put it in smoothies, it's absolutely delicious and is loaded with metabolism-boosting and anti-aging antioxidants as well.
