Our expert says:
Olives are an excellent food which is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and dietary fibre which are good for the heart. They have a moderate energy content of 115 cal or 480 kJ per 100g, so if one olive weighs about 5g then 30 x 5 = 150g and contains 173 cal or 720 kJ, which could cause weight gain if eaten too often. Try cutting down to 20 olives at a time. Moderation is really the key to everything.
Seeing that the brain is the largest erogenous organ in the body, the belief that olives are an aphrodisiac will certainly make people feel more sexy.
