Coconut Oil

Written by sampalmer52 on 1/29/2011 4:23 PM | COMMENTS (8)

Yesterday I did some catching up on Dr. OZ's newsletters. I love the demonstrations he does to make his points.

If you don't get his news letter, it's basically a recap of last week's show. Only you get to choose which subject you would like to see the video & additional articles on the subject.

Came across an episode where he was explaining Omega 3's - why we need them and where we can get them. If your fingernails are splitting or too course or you hair has lost it's shine, you need more Omega 3's I have both of the above.

One of the places he suggested to get this fat naturally from was in coconut oil. . He recommended you eat 1 tsp of the oil every day. Also to take 1 tsp. coconut oil plus a tsp of honey & a ripe avocado& massage it into your scalp.

Coconut & I are not friends matter of fact it gags me,(sorry coconut lovers) but I managed to swallow 1 tsp solid coconut oil & keep it down. Next I am going for the hair. I'll let you know how that works.

Feel stagnant - not in the mood to push myself to loose those last few lbs. Gained 1 # this week - I'm not at all worried, I'll loose it next week. Maybe some sunshine will get my rah rah going again.

I'm not going anywhere.

You good people have a lovely OP weekend.

    Whole Food 365 coconut oil - is very mild. I have found that it doesn't have that strong coconut taste.

    I'm not a fan of eating coconut, but I like the smell, and I can have coconut milk in food and things. I like watching Dr. Oz too - eating more sardines these days... you should just eat sardines for the Omega 3

    I tend to like the flavor of coconut just not the texture of on cake, candy bars and such... but I can't imagine swallowing oil..LOL I would probably gag too.... Maybe worth a shot.. my fingernails are awful!

    I'm with you about coconut oil. I don't like the taste. I only use olive oil. Love the Dr Oz show. Down 2 lbs! Yeah!

    I don't know about just eating a tbp of oil. I think I'd have to mix it with something. Just thinking about it makes me gag.

    My dad was a nutritional chemist. He was a HUGE proponent of the healthy oils. His oils of choice were fish oil, flax seed oil and coconut oil. He's convinced me. Go for it.

    Interesting about the coconut oil. I didn't even know there was such a thing. :)
