When I was initially diagnosed with GP fat, became an instant fear as I'm sure many of you can relate to. However, with the encouragement of the right dietitians and friends, I learned how to include the right fats in small amounts. After doing some research, coconut oil seemed to be the friendliest one to incorporate and I have been hooked since. For myself and those I've worked with this seems to digest the best out of most choices for fats. It is rich in lauric and caprylic acids, great source of medium-chain triglycerides (easier to break down than long-chain), and may support the structure and function of the immune system, cardiovascular system healthy metabolism and energy production, as well as body, skin and hair care.
