Coconut oil is used in my kitchen as I would use regular oil for cooking. My husband uses Nature's Way Extra Virgin Coconut Oil every day in his food. He swears it has helped him to lose belly fat and weight.

Lucinda, I did find the coconut oil in with the other oils at Walmart. Look next to the olive oils.

Hugs, Sunny

Great article...thanks! I'd heard coconut water was good, but I haven't tried it yet. Now I'll look for coconut oil at the supermarket when I shop next and try that for cooking. I've switched from butter to olive oil and canola oil, not sure how coconut oil compares, but it's probably worth trying,

There is a team called nuts for coconut and they have links and info that is quite good. I started using it once in a while then started reading about all the good it does you and now we have been trying to get it in everyday.

Hey guys, been MIA again, Just don't have a lot of time for the PC. I did run across an article I thought I would share with you. It is about Coconut Oil I have been using it for a while now and seems that is is good for you.

The 5 Health Benefits of Coconut Oil

Although coconut water may not be quite as beneficial as we thought, that doesn't mean that you still can't get health benefits from coconut in other forms. In fact, coconut oil is one of the best ways to enjoy the health benefits of coconut!

5 Things to Love About Coconut Oil

1. It may help with weight loss. Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides that are metabolized differently than fats from other oils. These unique fats may help with weight loss.

2. It can raise your good cholesterol. Although coconut oil contains saturated fats, it's not the bad kind you normally think of. In fact, coconut oil can raise your good HDL cholesterol and give you a dose of antioxidants!

3. It may strengthen your immune system. Coconut oil contains antimicrobial lipids, lauric acid, capric acid and caprylic acid, which have antifungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties. This can help in fighting harmful bacteria and illness in the body!

4. It helps you to absorb important minerals. The fats and substances in coconut oil help your body to better absorb calcium and magnesium, which are important for bone health.

5. It helps with blood sugar levels. Coconut oil also helps control blood sugar levels by improving the secretion of insulin and the utilization of blood glucose.

So the next time you cook, why not try a little coconut oil instead of your usual cooking oil?

With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.” ~Mark Victor Hansen
