It coconut good or bad? (Why I stopped eating coconut products)

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 that contain high amounts of saturated fat, so I’ve swapped out coconut milk for almond milk. I no longer add coconut oil to my desserts or sauté my vegetables in coconut oil. In addition, I limit the amount of coconut flakes I add to my desserts and smoothies.
