Motivation for your Monday Fitness: Olive Oil

Today's Favorite Food: Olive Oil
Olive Oil: Motivation for Monday Fitness
Over the next few weeks Bob & Caroline Scott of the Louisville Athletic Club will be telling us about their favorite foods that they eat on a regular basis.  This week's Fitness Tip is about Olive Oil.  Here's why it is super good for you:

"Most of the questions we get do involve food, and specifically what Bob and I eat on a daily basis.  The reason we get so many food centered questions is mainly because about 80% of the 'good health' equation is in fact nutrition.  So, over the next several weeks we want to dedicate this segment to highlighting and sharing some of our favorite healthy foods and their benefits... Bob and I use olive oil daily for recipes, cooking, and pretty much everything we make in our kitchen.  It is so good for you and has so many wonderful benefits." - Caroline Scott

The Benefits of Olive Oil that Bob Scott Mentioned were:

  • It greatly reduces your risk of cardiovascular diseases
  • Helps maintain good digestive health

  • Helps in the prevention of colon cancer
