That’s right, safflower oil and CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) promoted weight loss in obese, postmenopausal women with type 2 diabetes.  Just a little over 6 grams (2 pills) of either of the oils 4 times a day for 16 weeks led to reduced abdominal fat, lower blood sugar and increased muscle mass with safflower oil supplements, while CLA reduced total body fat and BMI.  Because our body doesn’t produce CLA or linoleic acid, look to supplements.  Amer J Clin Nutr
