If you really need to eat healthy fats- get it from Avocado and unprocessed Nuts & Seeds in limited amounts.
First, let’s talk about fat. “In terms of calories, all fats are the same: butter, coconut oil, olive oil. They all have the same number of calories and fat grams.
In the past few years, coconut oil has been called a superfood that can help you blast belly fat and raise your good cholesterol. The sweet and nutty trendsetter has been featured in many cookbooks as a substitute for olive or canola oil — and it can cost a bundle at the store.
A recent survey found that 72 percent of Americans say coconut oil is a “healthy food,” but many nutrition experts aren’t convinced.
The problem is that coconut oil contains a lot of saturated fat — the kind that is a big risk factor for heart disease, which kills more than 17 million people a year worldwide.
