Coconut oil is about 2/3 medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs), which produce a whole host of health benefits, including stimulating your metabolism. MCFA's are also immediately converted to energy so like avocados, coconut oil is an ideal replacement for carbs."

Thoughts?


I love it when the powers that held sway before try to dethrone something to keep their market share. So obvious and so common.
