    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?

    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

    I love the flavor of this stuff. I just use it as an extra add on fat source.
