Coconut Oil vs Soybean Oil

At the end of the 12-week study, the researchers found that the women who were given the coconut oil experienced:

  • Significant reduction in both BMI and waist circumference
  • Increase in “good” HDL cholesterol
  • Decreased LDL/HDL ratio

These results were not found in the group that was given soybean oil.

The authors concluded:

“It appears that dietetic supplementation with coconut oil does not cause dyslipidemia [an abnormal amount of cholesterol and/or fat in your blood] and seems to promote a reduction in abdominal obesity.”

How To Get More Coconut Oil Into Your Diet

One of the things I love most about coconut oil is that it tastes amazing and is pretty easy to add to your diet. Once you start cooking with it, you’ll find it isn’t hard at all to get the recommended 2-3 tablespoons into your diet.

Coconut oil is ideal for cooking since it has a high smoke point of 350 degrees and 400 degrees if you use refined coconut oil (read more about how to cook with coconut oil here).

Virgin coconut oil is a better choice because it’s less refined and pure. If you’re not a fan of your food tasting like coconut, you can use expeller pressed coconut oil. You’ll want to make sure that the expeller pressed coconut oil is processed without solvents or chemicals. Read more about how to choose the best coconut oil here.

Below is a list of some of my favorite coconut oil recipes. Enjoy!
