hwichlaz I'm not far from my goal weight.

I was a hobby runner, eating a low fat, low sugar diet. Lots of fruits and veggies and whole grains, running 3-5 miles 5 days a week.

My weight plateaued. I was further cutting calories, working out more....nothing was helping...then I watched "The Magic Pill" on netflix. The way the European diet affected the Maori people was very eye opening. Then the REAL studies, that the Dr. in South Africa was showing at his malpractice trial......

Yes it is. But, unless you're dong "dirty keto" it's also grain free, no processed foods at all, no processed/altered fats etc.

It's a higher fat paleo plus dairy.

I was pre-diabetic, it's been reversed. My blood pressure is back within normal range, and my cholesterol is perfect. None of these things were true 6 months ago.

It's based on indigenous diets, pre-sugar and flour (introduced by europeans). It was originally developed as a treatment for epilepsy.

hwichlaz I'm keto, so I use a lot of coconut oil. My diet is roughly 70% fat. I've lost about 30lbs, and my total cholesterol is about 120

Unregistered Use it the same you would as lotion. Argon oil is great too

Can you post some steps on how to use it as a skin care treatment?

sharlan Unfortunately, we are a coconut free home (or mostly).

Grandson is allergic to coconut. Try finding hair/skin products that don't have coconut or coconut derivatives in it.

Every label has to be read. Even my favorite Barilla pasta tortellini has coconut flour in it.

Michael I put coconut "butter" and raw honey in my tea.

Ditto I have used it for over 10 years.

I use it for everything food and body

mommyneedsadayoff I buy organic, unrefined coco oil at walmart. Use it for everything!
A teaspoon in your coffee, with cream and sweetener is my morning favorite.

I cook with it, just like any othef oil. Carrots, cut in slices, cooked in coco oil are delicious...sprinkle with parsley before eating!

Body:
moisturizer
hair conditioning treatment
cold sore treatment

lorie I mostly use it as a makeup remover and hair mask

Sure does. It is sweet and delish!
Not all the time but it is a treat.

Countrygal I have done SOME cooking with it and I use it for various skin treatments, but I have limited knowledge of using it.

I was wondering if some of you would share your recipes (both inside and out ) for using it? You could post them in the recipe section??

Thanks so much ahead of time!

SunshineMama I give my kids 1 tsp of organic coconut oil a day.

I use it on my pregnant belly (no stretch marks and I'm on baby #3)

I put in in my hair and on my face It doesn't clog pores!

I cook with it-it is SO much tastier than all other oils!

I got a pamphlet from my holistic sstore about the benefits of it and there are a million good things that it does!

Also, coconut water is really good too! Apparently it has some of the same chemical makeup as our blood and soldiers in the past used to use coconut water as IV's when they were desparate.

Michael Yep, we use coconut oil inside and outside. Good for the skin.

sharlan Has anyone incorporated coconut oil into their diet?

I don't drink smoothies, but I do drink Glucerna once a day.
