First used more than 5000 years ago, sesame seeds were believed to have magical properties by our ancestors. The name ‘sesame’ comes from Latin and Greek words that were derived from ancient Sematic languages like Akkadian which mean, ‘oil, liquid fat’.

Despite being in use for so many centuries, sesame oil’s benefits for weight loss became known to us only recently. While it may seem counter-intuitive to use sesame oil for weight loss, you’ll soon see why we swear by it.

If you want to experience the benefits of using sesame oil for weight loss, look for oil pressed from organically grown sesame seeds. Organic farming is great for human and environmental health as it is devoid of any toxic pesticides.

How To Use Sesame Oil For Weight Loss?

There are two major ways in which you can use sesame oil for weight loss, in cooking food or desserts and as salad oil. Here are a few healthy and easy ways to get the maximum benefits while using sesame oil for weight loss.

1. Add to your salad dressing or use it as a topping:

If you are already eating healthy, add a little bit of organic sesame oil to your salad as a topping or mix it in your dressing. The delicious nutty taste will only enhance the flavour of your salad. Rice vinegar is a good pairing.

2. Mix it with whole-wheat, gluten-free bread:

Remember how the Italians eat olive oil with garlic bread? You could do something similar with sesame oil. Try replacing butter with this oil or add it to your dough when you are baking bread at home. It goes well with peanut butter too!

3. Use it for cooking your dals and vegetables:

The easiest way to use sesame oil for weight loss is to cook with it. Forget your other cooking oils and start using sesame instead for its fat-burning properties.

4. Add it your dips:

While sesame seeds are always a great idea to add to your hummus-tahini recipes, you can add a little bit of sesame oil to all your dips and enjoy it while snacking.

5. Use it as a marinade:

Sesame oil makes for a great marinade. Add one tablespoon of sesame oil in your usual marinade (it goes well with almost everything) for paneer, chicken or any other meat.

Sesame Oil For Weight Loss: How is it Beneficial?

How exactly is sesame oil good for weight loss? Here’s your answer! We looked at two articles published by the Times of India and the NDTV to shed some light on the subject.

  • It is rich in healthy fats and has no trans fats, which will help prevent weight gain.
  • It is free of carbs.
  • They are rich in lignans like sesamol that can help burn fat.
  • Sesame seeds are high in fibre. If you use the cold-pressed, organic version of sesame oil, you can make the most of this fibre which can help you feel fuller faster and aid in better elimination.
  • Sodium causes fluid retention in our bodies. Sesame seeds are low in sodium which will help you reduce the water weight.
  • Sesame seeds, and sesame oil if pressed correctly, can be a great source of protein that may help increase your metabolism and ultimately lose fat.
