I daily eat 5 -7 table spoons of extra version olive oil mostly sprinkling on food, salad. Any health benefits, or concerns from the saturated fat.

I daily eat 5 -7 table spoons of extra version olive oil mostly sprinkling on food, salad. Any health  benefits,  or concerns from the saturated fat.

Only calories!: There is little saturated fat in olive oil, which primarily is monosaturated fat, the fat with health benefits, and which also moderates your cholesterol and increases hdl. The only downside is the extra calories. If you are on a low carbohydrate lifestyle, it wouldn't matter. But on a conventional diet it would. It is a good idea to replace saturated fat with monsaturated fat when you can! ...Read more

Coconut oil i've read conflicting reports on the benefits or harm of coconut oil in the diet.  Is non-hydrogenated okay or is any coconut oil dangerous?  Guess i'm looking for further opinions.

Just : Just like everything else, there are pros and cons to taking coconut oil. Pro’s: it works well as a hair conditioner and as a skin moisturizer. It contains lauric acid which is antimicrobial. It is used in some cultures for wound care and for viruses. After drinking coconut oil some people feel full and it helps to suppress their hunger. There are many, many other conditions that it is puported to treat that have not been scientifically demonstrated at this time. Con’s: people who ingest a couple of tablespoons of coconut oil per day have a high incidence of nausea and vomiting. Coconut oil has the highest saturated fat content of all oils. One tablespoon of coconut oil contains more than 13 grams of fat. This could seriously impact your cholesterol levels. Because of the saturated fat content, this may not be the wonder solution that is purported. It sounds like it may work well for wrinkles, dry skin and split ends without detrimental impacts. ...Read more
