If you are serious in body slimming, it's time to have proper consideration in choosing which cooking oil to use as they major impact in the outcome. These are the types of healthy or non-saturated fat cooking oil which you should consider using:

1. Olive Oil
Extra virgin olive oil is one of the healthiest oils and is suitable for cooking in the oven and stir-frying. Refined olive oil doesn't contain as many of the beneficial substances as extra virgin but has a higher smoke point, making it suitable for cooking at higher heat. Both extra virgin and refined olive oil contain 78 percent monounsaturated fat and 14 percent saturated fat.

2. Canola Oil
Canola oil also provides mainly monounsaturated fat, with 62 percent, and contains only 7 percent saturated fat, making it one of the oils lowest in saturated fat. Canola oil also has a small amount of essential omega-3 fats. It has a medium-high smoke point, like extra virgin olive oil, but has a milder flavor. You can use it for making any dishes except those that require browning, searing or deep-frying at high heat.

3. Nut and Seed Oils
Some nut and seed oils also provide high amounts of monounsaturated fats. Hazelnut oil has a high smoke point and 82 percent monounsaturated fat, with just 7 percent saturated fat. Sunflower seed oil contains 79 percent monounsaturated fat and 14 percent saturated fat, and almond oil contains 65 percent monounsaturated fat and 7 percent saturated fat. Both of these oils have high smoke points, making them good for all types of cooking. Macadamia nut oil has a slightly lower smoke point, similar to that of canola and extra virgin olive oil, but contains 84 percent monounsaturated fat and 13 percent saturated fat. Walnut, sesame, pumpkin seed and peanut oils all contain less than 50 percent monounsaturated fat, making them less beneficial for weight loss.
