Coconut Oil Question

  1. Coconut Oil Question


    I recently started using coconut oil topically for some skin problems, it works great. But, my question is this, I know it has some great health benefits if ingested.

    Serving size is a tablespoon, but does anyone here already use it?

    How many servings a day is best?

    Also, I'm assuming just grab a tablespoon and chew it up right?


  2. Yea, add a tablespoon to a shake or a drink. It melts at around 25 C . Depends on your caloric intake , don't want you to start gaining weight from it :P 1-2 tbsp per day is fair. I've been doing that with this coconut oil for ages. Great stuff.

  3. I use it with my eggs and potatoes everyday. It adds a nice sweetness to them and is much easier to cook with than EVOO.

  4. High quality coconut oil is the **** , for cooking and just straight up tablespoon or two... just has a yummy smooth taste to it.

  5. Thanks a lot to everyone who replied. That link is awesome, good deal here at Nutra I'm going to order my next bottle from here.

  6. Gonna take a tablespoon morning and night, after researching some of the benefits people claim it helps them with, it's worth a shot!

  8. Definitely helps your thyroid. Just make sure to factor in the fat into your daily macros. 1tbsp is 14g of fat...

  9. i just grab a spoon dig into my jar of EVCO and take a tablespoon or two to the head, melts in y our mouth like m&m's.

    It also tastes great with a chocolate casein shake pre-bed, slightly warmed up

    You warm up your casein shake? Microwave?

  12. Good in oatmeal too.

    I like it in hot foods more than cold (liquid form rather than solid chunks).

    There was a recent article in NY times about cooking and baking with it. I'm not going to go find the link but it is easily googleable for anyone interested.
