Are you seriously eating coconut oil?

coconut oil

My friend told me her husband started eating coconut oil because he heard what great benefits it has. She didn’t bother telling him what a bad idea that was because he doesn’t listen to her advice anyway. After two months he complained of stomachaches and weight-gain. She laughed and said, “It’s the coconut oil you’re eating, you idiot!”

Coconut oil is a high-calorie saturated fat. It has more calories than butter and traditional oils. I like to sauté vegetables in a teaspoon of coconut oil not only because I love the tropical flavor but also because not much is needed in comparison to other oils when stir-frying.

You can still have your coconut oil, just use it sparingly. It’s still has calories and fat, and just like any other food, it CAN make you fat.
