I cook solely with olive oil. My b/f had a slight cholesterol problem and for three months he went on a diet of salmon twice a week and everything baked in olive oil, etc. I increased him eating stuff that had good fats and it fell a whopping 29 points! Though I'm overweight, I've always had really low cholesterol b/c I eat good fats.

Coconut oil is a saturated fat - which has been condemned as the worst kind. But there is dissenting opinion on the matter - some say that coconut oil is far and away the BEST oil to use in cooking because it is so stable. I think on another of your posts someone mentioned the Weston A. Price Foundation. On their site is an article on fat that explains things very well, IMHO.

I agree that coconut oil is very stable, and it is very good for you. Coconut oil became the bad guy when big food companies wanted to mislead the country by telling them that margarine is the only healthy alternative. But now we know how bad trans fats really are.

I agree that the Weston Price site has great information on the different oils as well as nutrition in general. It is a good read.
