I have been consuming 3 tbl spoons of virgin coconut oil daily. For me it has been a God sent. It has given me much more energy and has curbed my cravings for sweets and bad carbs.

thoughts?

Sounds great! Just remember that oil is oil, and a tablespoon is 100 calories. Oil does help you digest some vegetables, too, so the coconut is helping you get nutrients from veggies.

I have mostly switched from olive oil to
Coconut oil, so far can not tell any difference. But my husbands cholesterol has went down, may be coincidence??

from a nutrition background....tastewise, caloriewise, coconut oil should still be treated carefully it is an oil, with high fat and calorie content. It does have a different composition than other oils, affects the body differently in terms of how it affects fat storage, and may have different effects on you depending upon your overall health, specific diseases or health conditions, etc.

I'm not familiar with coconut oil or its composition. Twahlhowe?? Are you saying it has different fat storage capabilities? I'm an avid user of olive oil and am pretty satisfied with it currently. However, I'd like to learn more about this coconut oil and the why's and wherefore's from others in its use for eating? Is it okay to fry eggs in it?

Yes Synda, u i use it to scramble eggs. It does not do well with higher temperatures, may need to lower cooking temps. Google Coconut oil,lots if info. supposed to be a good option..

for myself, I am already struggling with high cholesterol, and stay away from coconut oil altogether because it is almost entirely saturated fat. Maybe in the future, when I have lost the weight and killed the cholesterol problem, I will try it. There are other health benefits associated with it, but it is still an oil, with high fat and calorie content. You know the deal...moderation in all things....

Ok, I can't resist, I have done three rounds of hcg and when ever I get sluggish or the weight loss slows down I eat chocolate delight ( coconut oil, coco powder and stevia. ) and the weight starts falling off again and I have so much more energy. The coconut oil go's straight to your liver where it is used for almost instant energy. We have some at the hospital just for the nurses In case we need a boost during the shift. Try it for yourself and see what you think. I love it. Good luck.

I will try it! I suffer from chronic fatigue, so anything that will boost my energy is welcome.
Is the recipe on this site too?
