Kick the Oil Habit

Switching to a plant based diet means you still get to keep most oils you've already been cooking with. Vegetable, peanut, canola, extra virgin olive - all vegan and plant based. So when I switched to eating plant based I continued cooking with them. But after some research I personally decided to cut as much oil out of my diet as possible. My reason was that I was trying to focus on consuming a low fat, plant based diet. 

Oil is just fat. No matter what kind you have, its basically just fat. Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, Director of the Cardiovascular Prevention and Reversal Program at The Cleveland Clinic, posts this on his website about oil:
