    my mom thinks coconuts are nature's miracle...

    I believe the saturated fats are mcts, which are the same kind of fats that are put into cytosport muscle milk...supposedly they're used for muscle energy instead of fat storage.

    My mom has a couple books claiming coconuts heal all this random bull****, I dunno' though...just something else to eat in my book.

    Any food has it's place but I just can't fit it in a logical diet for fat loss it is just all over the board..Eat it on your cheat day but don't make it a staple..Choose a slow burning food that delivers a constant supply of fuel..

    I just answered a post about coconuts a few hours ago. Coconut milk is one of the few foods that are very high in MCT's (medium chain tryglycerides). Coconut milk is used in baby formulas and given to hospital patients that must be forced fed or must recover from a severe accident. The MCT's in the milk are very quickly digested by the body and passed on to the liver. Here, they are quickly broken down to provide a quite significant amount of energy. Coconut milk also has exceptional healing properties (making it good for building muscle). MCT's are thought more of like carbohydrates rather than fats in the way they are used by the body.

    I was going to say something similar to this. You beat me to it. I take MCT's from time to time and they help me out energy wise. Haven't had any noticable difference in fat loss though.

    All in moderation. MCTs are great if youre doing a ketogenic, TKD, CKD or UD2 style diet where carbs are severely restricted. When I did UD2, I used either Enova oil (high in MCTs) or coconut oil in my salads (half MCTs).
