why I stopped eating coconut

coconut increases cholesterol

Coconut oil, coconut flour, coconut milk, and dried coconut flakes contain a substantial amount of saturated fat, which can increase cholesterol. Even though my cholesterol levels are normal, it’s not a good idea to eat products often, that contain saturated fat, so I’ve swapped out coconut milk for almond milk. I try to use olive oil instead of coconut oil, and I limit the amount of coconut flakes I add to my desserts and smoothies.
