Who would have thought that yummy coconut oil could help and supplement the Ketogenic Diet?
Interestingly enough, I just read in Dr. Julian Whitaker's Health & Healing newsletter that MEDIUM CHAIN TRIGLYCERIDES (MCTs) are not only abundant in coconut oil, they create KETONES! He says in effect that if you mix this MCT oil with coconut oil, it is as effective as a ketogenic diet!
The ratio is 4 teaspoons of MCT oil to 3 teaspoons of coconut oil, 3 times a day. Mix them together in a jar (do not refrigerate or else they'll turn hard) and measure out the desired dose for each meal.
He suggests cooking with the combined oils, puting it in oatmeal, using it as salad dressings and using it as a spread.
To store it in a bottle, combine 16 ozs. of MCT oil plus 12 ozs. coconut oil.
NOTE: Because coconut oil contains no omega-3's, a minimum of 2 grams of fish oil should be also be taken daily. And start slowly, or else you're sure to get the trots!
The coconut oil should be easy to find in a health food store. But for the MCT oil, you'll probably have to Google to find a source.
