I use coconut flour and oil in cooking. My Dr just told me it's high in fat and should be avoided since my household is eating healthier . I always understood it to be low Glycemic, high fiber and low/moderate fat .

What do you know ?

Ifyou like Dr. Mercola, he did a little article that might help you understand where the doctor is coming from. http://www.huffingto...s_b_821453.html

If you follow the theory that high fat foods should be avoided fairly strongly, then yeah, you probably wouldn't eat it. But you also wouldn't have much to do with nuts, butter, avocados, oils, etc. The "coconut is high in fat, so it's bad for you, and it's high in saturated fat so it's really bad for you" idea is an over simplification at best. I use it, and I use coconut oil and coconut milk, in moderation with everything else.

Great article - I knew coconut oil was beneficial, but this article explains the benefit/detriment of all oils very simply.

Thanks for sharing pricklypear!

Undiagnosed Celiac Disease ~ 43 years

3/26/09 gluten-free - dignosed celiac - blood 3/3/09, biopsy 3/26/09, double DQ2 / single DQ8 positive

10/25/13 - MCAD

Health history since celiac diagnosis became too long -- moved to the "about me" section of my profile

My children and I all have multiple copies of the genes for Celiac Disease, along with large variety of symptoms/resolution gluten-free

Current tally from me, three kids and two grands: 4 diagnosed with Celiac Disease, 2 NCGS

Get PROPERLY tested BEFORE REMOVING GLUTEN.

ALWAYS independently research health related information found on internet forums/blogs.

"LTES" a Gem :)
