Amazing stories on benefits of coconut oil.
Eat fat, lose fat.
There are a lot of information online about the benefits of coconut oil. You can investigate on your own. Its a myth that it has bad cholesterol, and that it is an unhealthy fat. Yes it is bad for you if you buy the hydrogenated coconut oil and not the organic virgin coconut oil. After I read about the amazing benefits of coconut oil, from many different sources, I started to give a teaspoon a day to my girls. I put some on my face to prevent wrinkles, and blemishes. I rub it on my very pregnant belly now, it helps with itching and stretchmarks. I love the smell of it, it absorbers very fast, and doesn't leave a sticky or oily residue. Oh, and the best part it regulates my weight even when I am pregnant. The body feels satisfied faster, I don't have the hunger pangs, and helps in preventing me eating high sugary foods, which are not that good for me. The picture didn't really turn out as good as I hoped, it is kind of dark. But here I am 28 weeks pregnant.
