Coconut Oil — Good or Bad?

I saw an episode of Dr. Oz last week and wanted to share with you what he and another doctor had to say about the benefits of coconut oil.

The first part of the video talks about something else, so fast forward to about 1 min. 54 sec. and watch the segment on MCTs. Those are found in coconut oil, and they’ll mention coconut oil specifically in the video. According to what they said on the episode, eating coconut oil regularly can help you burn about a pound of fat a month. And they explain how it works.

I use this brand of coconut oil, but you can use whatever you like.

I use LouAna Coconut Oil. It comes in a huge jar and is hard until you heat it up — I have to carve it out with a spoon. I love it for sauteing chicken tenders, veggies, and cauliflower “cous cous.” I know some people eat a spoonful of it right out of the jar, but I can’t bring myself to do that. It’s a texture thing.  Other people add it to oatmeal and other hot cereals, but since I don’t eat grains anymore I’ll stick to using it for sauteing.

I encourage you to give it a try if you’re interested in moving from being a sugar burner to becoming a fat burner. Check out the book It Starts With Food for more information on how it all works.
