    This is a very unconventional book from what is taught in nutrition courses It is very necessary for students to read this as medium chain fats are hardly ever discussed It took me a hard time to digest the material simply because I had been so brainwashed in school but after I got over it I practiced it on myself and have seen a vast improvement in my health and my childrens' Anyone interested in nutrition and health should have a copy of this book As a nutritionist I will vouch for itand after reading other sources about the beaurocracy of how Americans were driven to fear of natural tropical oilsthen I got it Scientists will tell you it is hokyit is not It's just not the popular thought du jour There is research out there to back it upit's hard to find because it is certainly hiddenbut it is there Think thishow could civilization have survived thousands of years on huge consumptions of tropical oils and never have suffered the demise that some would like you to believe it will cause you from simply eating a little bit?

    Interesting how there was not one negative review here Come on think people don't be like sheep The book is skeptical Yes I'm using coconut oil With every claim he makes I check the reference Mind you he failed completely to use not one footnote Proving his lack of scientific writing skills Editor is? Not found Further when studies are done only in mice that does not by any means say same results will occur in humans Specifically on p 104 his Skin elasticity test is so very bogus That test is a hydration test used in medical practice A child's skin will not retract well when dehydrated Yes it slows down with age but due to natural thinning of the skin All in all I failed to purchase a scientific book and that has me kicking myself RN BSNRNC

    Anyone with any health problems especially digestive issues or who wants to best preserve the good health they do have should take advantage of the wealth of great inforesearch pesented in this bookOne of my children had had some physicalbehavioral symtoms that lead me to use a glutenfreecasein free diet for awhileand a fish oil supplement which helped a good deal but there was still clearly a piece of the puzzle missing Coconut oilmilkmeat has been that piece It's potent healing properties are truly an every day miracle Plus the recipes for coconut cookiesyou can make them with agave sweetener instead of sugar and the curried cauliflower soup are supper tasty Highly recomended

    I'm so annoyed I didn't come to the idea of using coconut cream and coconut oil as replacements for dairy products soonerI wish so much I had The coconut ice creams and hot chocolates and other dishes I have been making since reading this book and others like it are just delicious and so good for you as well I've been going a bit coconut crazy I have to admitThis book is just excellent If you aren't convinced that eating coconut oil with its high level of HEALTHY saturated fat is good for you and wont make you gain weight then I highly recommend either this book or 'Eat Fat Lose Fat'The other coconut books I have read also had far better recipe sections than this one the recipes in this book were its low pointDon't believe the hype extra virgin coconut oil is one of the healthiest foods you could ever eat and it also has an anti viral effect which is beneficial for those of us battling chronic illnesses and makes a great moisturiser as wellJodi Bassett The Hummingbirds' Foundation for Myalgic Encephalomyelitis ME

    Pretty interesting book on a natural food source that has fallen out of vogue I thought it was odd that the only place I saw coconuts coconut oil and coconut milk was at health food stores Whole Foods Trader Joe's etc Why would that be if it's not healthy to consume? A friend of mine answered that uestion by providing this book to me I'm glad he didWhile not the most articulate or elouent piece of writing you'll run across Fife takes the time to break down cocunut's history pushed out of the mainstream when saturated fats all fell under one umbrella and then became taboo as soy products and vegetable oils were being pushed its differentiation from most fats MCFA's are becoming a widely researched nutrient in fight infections cancer and viruses and its multiple uses Most eye catching to me despite the influx of soy products and the promotion of vegetable oils by the FDA the very people consuming them at the highest rates see their odds for heart disease cancer and drained immune sytems rise dramatically Meanwhile tropical people consume diets of over 50% saturated fats from tropical oils and have an almost non existent rate of these health issuesMuch like green tea or the acai berry coconuts have been overlooked by the western world because our medicine has manufactured both money and an inflated ego in creating its own pharmaceuticals The natives of the lands that consume things like the naturally occurring items listed however have reaped their benefits for centuries

    I thoroughly enjoyed reading The Coconut Oil Miracle Having been a proponent of the use of coconut oil myself I found so many additional ways in which to incorporate it into my daily lifenot only in recipes but also for hair and skin care There are several recipes in the back of the book that I plan on using as well; and I had no idea how much the soybean industry and our own government had brainwashed us for many many years into believing that polyunsaturated fats were better for us than the tropical saturated fats like coconut and palm kernel oils Sadly much of our physical ills are a direct result of using those highly touted polyunsaturated fats in our diets Excellent book in my opinion and I've been telling everyone I know to read it

    This book has good info but is a bit outdated; this book was first published in the 90's and cites studies from this time It's such a shame that negative advertising against the tropical oils has driven the public and food manufacturing to the consumption and use of oils that's making so many Americans fat I'm going to give coconut oil a try although some of the author's claims seem too good to be true

    If you don't want read than a line then just stop using all refined vegetable oil like sunflower groundnut soyabeen saffola etc replace all with coconut oil and start taking 3 and half tablespoon full of coconut oil preferable virgin daily Coconut oil has above 90% saturated oil and it is Medium Chain Fatty Acid MCFA This type of fatty acid of Coconut is working as panacea Lobby of vegetable oil manufactures make villain out of tropical oils like coconut and palm kernel oil and effect is seen in increase of heart disease diabetes cancer etc All processed vegetable oils release detrimental free radicals however saturated fat of coconut oil is much stable at heat due to its uniue carbon and hydrogen bond Though sometimes the book may seem repetitive but to provide information on working of coconut oil on human body it becomes necessary Further author provides many mouthwatering recipes at the end so that people can start building coconut eating habit

    I had been looking forward to reading this book for a long time before I actually managed to get hold of it And I wasn't disappointedIt turns out that we have all been deceived about the saturated fat in coconut oil being harmfulCoconut oil is composed primarily of medium and short chain fatty acids The medium chain fatty acids are broken down and used mostly for energy production thus they produce energy not fat They have no negative effect on blood cholesterol and help protect against heart diseaseSaturated fats having no missing hydrogen atoms or double bonded carbons are not vulnerable to oxidation and free radical formation like unsaturated fats Saturated fats remain stable even when heated to normal cooking temperatures and coconut oil is by far the safest oil to use in cooking though you must ensure that you use temperatures below 350 degrees F ie avoid letting the oil smoke In fact the medium chain fatty acids in coconut oil give it uniue properties and make it the healthiest oil of them allMedium chain triglycerides MCT oils are oils composed of 100% medium chain fatty acids MCFAs These are derived from coconut or palm kernel oils Coconut and MCT oils are used in hospitals to treat malabsorption syndrome and burnt or severely ill patients among others CoconutMCT oil has been an important ingredient in baby formulas and especially in treating premature babies The MCFAs in coconut oil are lauric acid 48% caprylic acid 8%and capric acid 7% However coconut oil contains a complete set of MCFAs provides a balance of several fatty acids rather than just two and is a completely natural productSouth Sea islanders whose traditional diet consists mostly of coconut products are extremely healthy those who have stuck to this diet that is and who haven't begun to consume Western junk foodMCFAs from coconut oil can kill bacteria and viruses that cause influenza herpes bladder infections gum diseases and numerous other conditions It acts as an antioxidant and protects the heart and arteries from injury caused by bacteria viruses and free radicals Heart disease rates in India tripled when people were advised to stop eating coconut oil since it caused heart disease ? and instead started to consume margarine and processed vegetable oils Fungal and yeast infections can also be cured by coconut oilCoconut oil contributes to healing innumerable disorders including digestive and nutrient absorption disorders Crohn's disease osteoporosis gallbladder disease viral infections AIDS cancer diabetes liver disease and prostate enlargement It provides valuable nourishment for new born babiesMpreover replacing the other oils and fats with coconut oil will lead to weight loss if you are overweight The author of the book reports losing 20 pounds after he began to use coconut oil instead of processed vegetable oilsFife advises us to use up to 3 12 tablespoon of coconut oil in our diet We can use both dried and fresh coconut coconut milk or coconut oil either eaten directly by the spoonful or merely used in cooking 7 ounces of dried coconut or 10 ounces of coconut milk also provide the necessary 3 12 tablespoons of oil You can also apply the oil to your skin or scalp which is apparently practically as good as eating itI myself drink from 13 to 12 can of coconut milk every day use about 3 tablespoons of the oil in cooking every or every second day and rub it all over my skin every nightI suffer from Crohn's but have had no attacks of raging and painful stomach acid since starting to partake of coconut oil and have experienced having too little stomach acid an unpleasant sensation of being completely unable to digest any food paradoxically only when drinking too much coconut milk However after having used the oil and milk regularly for about a month I no longer experience this symptom at all I have extremely pathologically dry skin but after having applied the oil for a week or so the skin on my arms looks normal and the skin on my face looke and feels much better The oil has a beneficial effect on slight cuts I have on my leg which otherwise are having extreme difficulty in healing They now have begun to heal Also for a year or so I was plagued by stomach pains due to harmful bacteria and these pains have to all intents and purposes disappeared thus saving me a fortune I on oregano oil strong garlic products and potent herb pills Howver I have been treated in the same period by a MAP Medical Assistance Program team who are perhaps primarily responsible for this progress See reviews of the book MAP by Machaelle Small WrightThe only complaint I have as regards this book is that it could have been made clearer that in addition to coconut oil your body reuires essential fatty acids coconut oil containing only 2% of these Bruce Fife does mention the need for extra EFAs in one of the boxes entitled Essential Fatty Acids but not otherwise in his main text where he talks only of throwing out margarine shortening and all the unhealthy processed oils Though he states in this box that consumption of coconut oil can enhance the efficiency of essential fatty acids by as much as 100 per cent Fife concludes by stating that for optimal health we should consume a small amount of EFAs along with a significantly larger amount of MCFAsThere is a final useful chapter in the book comprising coconut oil recipesIf you wish to obtain optimum health and especially if you suffer from various health complaints I would strongly advise you to read this valuable book

    Part scare tactic part hype and heavily testimonial but hidden within is a reasonable suggestion that coconut oil can be helpful in the prevention and treatment of health concerns If everyone attempted to follow Fife's advise the coconut fields would be overwhelmed and the price would rise to an impossible level I wonder if he is funded by the coconut and red palm industry I am already a coconut oil user and have used it to treat sinusitis with some success he did not mention my method I may follow some of his advise but will also keep heed his caveats even though he underplays them
