...as Barney says. So thank you for all your blogs and menu posts on the awesome-ness of coconut oil!
This is "preaching to the congregation" for those of us who know, but in case you don't....
Coconut oil contains medium chain triglycerides (mct.) These are technically a fat, so they don't call forth insulin. But the body uses mct's almost as it would use a carbohydrate since medium chain fatty acids don't require bile for digestion. But they are not a carb. The result is ultra fast energy! And weight loss, as some studies have shown.
I now enjoy a nibble or two (or three) of coconut oil every day. I even use it on my skin for a lotion. Love it!
