Want to hear our take on whether coconut oil is still a safe and healthy fat to use? Tune in to hear Ali and Becki take on this controversial topic and dissect the recent headlines bashing saturated fat and coconut oil. Learn about about our concerns with study funding, cherry picking of research and how recent studies have gotten it all wrong about cholesterol!

 

In this Episode, Ali and Becki take a deep dive into the coconut oil controversy and explore the faulty logic of the AHA’s most recent advice regarding saturated fat. While saturated fat can increase LDL, it improves the quality of these particles and raises HDL (good cholesterol). Learn why we focus on inflammation as the root cause of heart disease versus a cholesterol panel and how the recommended replacements for coconut oil are often pro-inflammatory foods. Plus, learn about the components of coconut oil, current research on its benefits for weight loss, antimicrobial uses, prevention of Alzheimer’s and more!
