Coconut Oil Confusion: When to Eat it…When to Avoid

Coconut Oil Confusion: When to Eat it…When to Avoid

Coconut oil like all oils (olive, sunflower, walnut, canola, etc.) has about 120 calories per tablespoon. It is a fat that’s solid at room temperature, made popular by marketing and unwarranted comparisons to MCT oil.

It’s a highly saturated fat and when planned in an otherwise heart-healthy diet, okay for some but not for everyone. Keep your total saturated fat intake for the day (all food sources combined) to less than 10 percent of total calories (or about 20 grams per day).

Enjoy coconut oil in moderation, so long as you don’t go coco-nutty with its use.
