First we’ll look at the general olive oil situation in Spain, clarify the basics of olive oil classifications, learn how to buy the best EVOO and answer any questions you may have.

All weight loss diets work, but which works best for you? Each year U.S. News & World Report ranks diets “best” in several different categories - weight loss, easy-to-follow, and heart-healthy, just to name three. For the 6th consecutive year, the Mediterranean Diet has been ranked #1 as the “Best Diet Overall”, and the Keto Diet is rated #1 for the “Best Fast Weight-Loss Diet.” But there’s a new kid on the block - the Keyto Diet. We’ll discuss why the Mediterranean diet is “best”, and how Keyto’s high-fat/low-carb pattern differs from the ”traditional” Keto Diet by including beneficial fats like those from olives and olive oil.
