I didn’t take a before and after photo of myself because I’ve been using coconut oil as my moisturizer for months. But I recently had a college student mistake me for a fellow student and ask for skin-care tips when she learned my age. I took that as a compliment and invited her to join the challenge.
Since I started cooking with coconut oil about a year ago (and eating a diet of fresh, whole foods) here are a few of the positive changes I’ve noticed. I lost close to 10 pounds when I first started and my weight has stabilized. It now fluctuates in ounces instead of pounds. My digestion has become more regular. I feel healthier overall. Most important, I’m not afraid of oil anymore, which makes cooking easier and more enjoyable.
It wasn’t a controlled experiment so I can’t say without a shadow of a doubt that these are a direct result of the coconut oil, but I believe it has positively impacted my health and combined with a diet of fresh, whole foods has helped my body heal from the inside out.
