It all depends on what you are trying to accomplish.
So back to coconut oil.
Are you trying to lose weight? Are you trying to gain weight?
Yes , coconut oil is awesome for many reasons! Here are a few benefits:
🥥🥥Helps Fight Bacteria
Nutritious and Filling

Natural Treatment for Sunburn
Great Skin Moisturizers/ Reduce signs of aging
Enhancing the Health of Liver and Kidneys

So if you are asking me will coconut oil help you lose weight??? Well, yes and no! Its very dense in calories since it is FAT. So when your trying to lose weight it is important to be in a deficit of calories. Fat is good for the body. Its great for our hormones and brain health! Fat is essential. But too much fat will lead to too many calories which will lead to weight gain.
So you need to be sure you use a moderate amount of coconut oil per day. This is why my clients track macros. Macros are the fat, protein and carbs you eat each day making up your entire caloric intake. In general my clients on a weight loss plan get between 45 and 80 grams per day in fat. Obviously that is a big range because no two people are the same. I man that weighs 220 pounds can afford 80 grams of fat but a woman that is 115 pound will be lower. That is if we are doing a balanced diet and not focusing on low carb / keto. Again each person is different and depends on the goal.
So if you are trying to lose weight and want to add the benefits of coconut oil to your diet this is what I would recommend. If your not macro tracking, use it sparingly. 1 table spoon per day. Also let it replace one of your everyday fats your already consuming such as, butter, peanut butter, olive oil, nuts etc. Use the coconut oil instead to reap the benefits but not over do the fat intake!
Now as far as using it on your hair and skin go for it ! I use it as a daily moisturizer for my body, a makeup remover on my face, and to deep condition my hair and scalp. I also use it with essential oils on my children!
So remember, next time you hear the media talk about the latest thing! Ask yourself , What is the goal? What am I trying to accomplish.
