tastes good on oatmeal as a replacement for honey
I used to spread it on toast as well. Anyone else ever tried the MCT Keto diet?
what the diet timber?
I take a TBSP of coconut oil daily. Coconut butter on toast is good.
I cook with it from time to time
it's a good source of saturated fat, which I probably don't get enough of ever since I cut back on my meat consumption, and started using leaner cuts of meat
Post some nutritional info fuck why do I even bother sometimes.
awww.. you are a quick one huh? stupid fuck.
that's how i cook my eggs.
I cook everything in coconut oil.
Really? How does that taste?
I try to stay away from it because it's my understanding that it's high in saturated fat and although saturated fat can be good for you I think I get plenty of it between my eggs, 1-2 servings of red meat, and occasional cheese.
Plus I don't know what I'd use it since I rarely eat oats these days.
it's a really good oil to cook with because it stands up to heat well.
it has a different kind of saturated fat, its high in lauric acid, which raised ldl+hdl levels.... sat fat of meat is high in mystric acid which just raises ldl... so it depends what you combo it with, a lean meat like chicken turkey give good fat ratio, i wouldnt mix with read meat, and take benefit of the MCTs by not eating carbs with the meal
thai coconut chicken soup ftw
Hence, why I said I don't bother to use it because I already eat solid amounts of red meat. What was the point of that rant?
To try to prove to everyone you know what you're talking about by essentially reiterating what I already said but in a more convoluted context?
*shrug* i thought synth's post had new information (the stuff about the acid, and cholesterol)
jehan, just added this good read to nutrition edu:
i thought coconut oil has one of the lowest smoke points. olive oil is about 400+F, canola 350-400, and coconut ~350. not sure if that's right or not though.
no, olive oil has the lowest smoke point... the more saturated fat an oil has the higher the smoke point ... thus the reason hydrogenated oil being popular for frying, the fat molecules of a mon-poly fat are bound with hydrogen to appear saturated
The same people who told you not to eat coconut oil are the same people who told you not to eat avocado and to use margarine instead of butter.
also, keep in mind with things like saturated (or any) fat- just because "it's a good fat" doesn't mean you can have all you want; it's still fat!
all things in moderation
It's better at increasing T and overall health than EVOO.
no, it has a high smoke point. coconut oil, avocado oil, and almond oil are all good for cooking. olive oil is better raw.
almond oil for cooking? dont think so.. to many monounsat fats
um, isn't that a good fat?
