i feel that its good on a bulk, otherwise its not technically an essential fat, so adding half coconut oil and half essential fats for your fat source with each meal can definetly be awsome, increase your metabolism, enhance immune system, enhance cholesterol synthesis in the testis eventually leading to more testosterone. and its digested as a carbohydrate

Unsweetened shredded coconut can be very healthy for you. It does have good healthy fat and some fiber.

It is high in MCT and in particular Lauric Acid which is a fat found in human breast milk. Also the saturated fat found in it is not really the same as bacon.

coconut oil is good for off season bulk, but while dieting it should not be a staple,
it has many added benifits lauric acid helps with imune system and thyroid production.
what im saying is that its not an essential fat and it shouldnt replace the essential fats, it can be added to them though.
