Ever heard of the multiple properties of coconut oil?

This is a saturated MCT oil. It possess strong antibacterial properties due to it's lauric acid content.

It is awfully toxic to problematic pathogen like Candida albicans, and many other fungus.

It provide fastly assimilable energy due to being a low molecular weigh fat (MCT).

It promote the production of ketone bodies.

I've alway wondered, it come from tropical forest tree, so it must be "geared" toward combating fungus due to the high humidity there.

Please provide your comment about this marvelous product.

I use it everyday in all kind of ways. Inside my home made toothpaste. Also in my food. But you need to be careful because this thing is heavy in saturated fat. So you can gain some weight if you overuse.

You can also make soap from it. 100% coconut oil soap works great.

Just remember to super fat it or it will work too well and dry your skin.

As usual my friend, I am not AT ALL of the same opinion as you are!

Carb is more prone to cause fat builtup, but still fat diet can cause fat builtup (like carb) if the total calory is more than one need.

Saturated fat danger is a myth.

Use it as a straight replacement for Dairy/processed fats.
Important to get the cold pressed, organic varieties though.

Have heard that the MCT's actually assists weight control through the speeding up of metabolism.

If you like the taste of coconut its a no brainer....getting used to coconut flavoured fried eggs can take a while!

True, but coconut oil has a lot of calories, so if you do eat it, those calories do add up. It's no different, in that respect, to any other oil or butter, except that it's healthy. Depending on what carbs you are eating, some are more calorie heavy than others.

The only thing that makes you fat is eating more calories than you burn. Period.

That said, coconut oil is my favorite thing for....everything. I cook with it, put it in my hair, use it as a moisturizer, makeup remover, everything.

Is it just me, but I've alway remarked that coconut oil seem to "attenuate" the taste of everything I cook in it.

Key word is overuse!!!
Same as Honey, it is called elixir of life, but if you drow your self in honey you will most probably get health issues. Same goes for coconut oil and with coconut oil you can easy get over the limit. Since it have high saturated fat. You probably know that 100 gram coconut oil have like 1000 calories, and what you do about that? Nothing? thats half amount of calories for average woman.

And there are no myths or no science misinterpretation about calories, input - output = weight + or minus. Simple as that. So yes coconut is healthy, but too much of it can bring you over the amount of daily calories.

Since i know you from other topic where you claim you eat alot of meat, then i m very interested what will happen with you. If you are just testign water or informing your slef then that is fine. But if you are really eating this way for several months or maybe even years i encourage you to open blog and write about it. I m very interested what will happen with your body and when it will happen. I know and i already write that human body can adapt to any diet. You can basically eat Cr*P and live for several years.

For people taking atypical antipsychotic drugs, fresh coconut meat helps with the drowsiness.

I use coconut oil every day in several ways. I have it in my coffee everyday and use it to cook almost everything. I buy it in tubs.

I saw you mentioned a ketogenic diet in my Cipro thread and now here. It's wonderful to see. It's my way of eating.

I love, love, LOVE coconut oil. So much so, my family are absolutely sick of me talking about it. I use it as a skin moisturiser, brush my teeth with it (as well as oil pulling), hair treatments, hair gel, energy booster the list goes on and on and on. I am a self confessed coconut oil junkie.
I have also seen a lot of anecdotal use for helping symptoms of alzheimers and dementia, I would definitely be interested in any research/medical studies in the coming years. (Hopefully
)

I know it sounds weird, because it melts and lays on top, but I'm totally used to it. I love it. In the afternoon, I throw it in the blender and add a little cream and blend it well. The result is a coconut flavored café au lait complete with foam (and not a sign of the oil). What a treat!

I use it all the time for cooking. Just cut back the carbs and sugars a little and your body will do the rest, no weight gained.

I cook with coconut oil too, we love it in my house. Coconut everything. Coconut palm sugar, coconut flour. I made bread of coconut. Actually it was cornbread but I'm thinking I'm gonna switch out the cornmeal for coconut flakes.
