      No. Olive oil, sesame paste, chickpeas, lemon juice, spices and garlic.

        It's not great relative to the calories but it's better than say a high carb meal without fiber.

          I don't think olive oil is a seed oil in the classical sense

            It's the opposite of a seed oil, it's a flesh oil.

              It is, but it's also higher in unsaturated fat (87% unsaturated fat) than coconut oil (which is ~15% unsaturated fat). Unsaturated fats, I think, oxidize easily, which is one of the chief problems with seed oils (which olive oil isn't).

                The main problems with seed oils is the amount of omega 6 in them.
                Olive oil is one of the lower variants and can easily be offset by eating some fatty fish.
                Not to mention there's barely any olive oil in hummus to begin with and most places don't use it anyway.
                tl;dr everyone in this thread is wrong and stupid

                I've read that the main problem with seed oils is the amount of linoleic acid they contain / put into the body when eaten

                Is this a problem with seed oils (assuming due to the extraction process) or seeds in general?

                That linoleic acid is problematic seems to be the case. Seeds themselves have them, I think, in the same way that protein whether as a whole cut or ground up has protein and fat.

                To be fair, that can be said about 90% of posters in every single thread on IST.

          Olive oil is fruit oil.

          Sesame is a seed but there is a big difference if it just ground into a paste or refined into an oil.

              virgin olive oil isn't made from the pits of the olive it's made from the flesh of the fruit. even if olives weren't a fruit olive oil wouldn't be a seed oil

    No, but it's a decent snack. Replace the pita with carrot sticks, celery and pretzels.

    IST will shit on it due to the calories to protein ratio but it's not terrible though I wouldn't advise it everyday. Hummus is extremely healthy, but not the best thing to eat a lot of on a weightlifting regimen. You do have to get your fats somewhere though and it's full of healthy fats.

      No. Is not even a lunch. Unless you're poor as frick.

      I wouldn't eat just bread and hummus for an actual meal. But its a nice little snack. I like a plain rice cake and roasted red pepper hummus.

      Pita I don't know but hummus is based and delicious, albeit better suited for warmer months sense it's better served cold.

      Ive been eating it as both lunch and a snack. i get the Pita bread and toast it a lot to make it almost like chips and scoop with it.
      I've been doing this (not everyday) since November and have been drastically changing my diet in general, that and working out I'm down about 20lb so far

      Switch out the pits for some veggies. Carrots, broccoli, or celery seems to be the ones that pair best with hummus.

    Add in some olives, a cheese like goat cheese, maybe some hard salami or another smoked meat, some hard boiled egg and some tzatziki sauce. It's a fine lunch, carb heavy but certainly more healthy than McDonalds.

    Olive oil is monounsatured and therefore more stable than polyunsaturated tats. Extra virgin olive oil isn't heavily processed. Pkants protect their seeds but they want animals to eat the fruit to spread the seed. Olive oil seems fine.
