The Coconut Diet: Coconut Oil Benefits for Health

Coconuts are a way of life for millions of people around the world today in tropical climates, and coconut oil has been a staple in their kitchen for thousands of years. Known as the "tree of life," the wonderful fruit of the coconut palm is rich in specific fats that have incredible health benefits. Traditional tropical populations that consume a lot of coconut oil have many benefits and are seldom overweight, and traditionally have been free from the modern diseases that afflict most western cultures.

The Coconut Diet is not a fad diet. It is a dietary philosophy, following the dietary principles of tropical cultures that consume large amounts of saturated fat in the form of coconut oil. Low-fat diets don't work. The body needs a proper balance of good fats for health benefits, but in recent years traditional, healthy saturated fats have been substituted with harmful trans-fats in the US food industry. We now know that these harmful trans-fats that are found in most vegetable oils are not the healthy oils they were once thought to be, and they are considered one of the major culprits in modern diseases and obesity. The Coconut Diet replaces these highly refined harmful fats with one of the healthiest fats known to mankind: coconut oil.

The Coconut Diet is a not one specific diet plan, but a way of life!  Most diet plans are temporary and tell you exactly which foods to eat, how much to eat, how to count calories or carbs, etc. Statistics prove that those starting such diet plans are usually doomed to failure before they even start, because while they may temporarily lose weight on specific diet plans, they will almost always regain that weight and more as soon as they stop using the diet plan. Our goal here is to educate you on the truth about how fats and oils affect your weight and health, and give you the knowledge you need to make basic dietary changes in your life that will give you optimal health benefts, and that should continue as long as you live. We have seen traditional people in the tropics follow these dietary principles and live very long, healthy lives with coconut oil as the main dietary oil in their diet. The principles of The Coconut Diet can be incorporated into any other major diet plan.

Within this website you will find many reasons why people are using coconut oil in their daily diet, and you will read about the science behind the diet with links to the coconut oil research that backs up the wonderful truth about this incredible oil.

Theresa: This Diet Has Given Me Renewed Energy and A New Life!

I have been taking a tablespoon of coconut oil three times daily with meals. Taking the oil with my meals seems to give me a “full feeling” a lot faster. My sweet tooth has practically vanished—and this is from someone who should have bought stock in Hershey's long ago! Ironically, facilitating weight loss was my main reason for trying the coconut oil diet, but with all the wonderful benefits I am experiencing, the weight loss aspect almost seems like an afterthought. About three days into the routine, I had an energy rush on a Saturday morning that kept me going until well after lunch. I can’t believe how much I got done that day! My mental state of mind seemed to be much sharper. I was able to focus on the tasks at hand without getting sidetracked. I was not exhausted at the end of running my errands, which included traipsing around a huge mall. It seemed like I was practically running, rather than the leisurely walking that was formerly my habit. In addition to my energy level, my mood has been very stable—no up and down mood swings—even with the onset of PMS! My husband commented yesterday on how soft and silky my skin felt, and I have not used any lotion since I started taking the oil. from the Coconut Diet Forums
