Bruce Fife, author of The Coconut Oil Miracle, writes:
As I learned more about diet, health, and coconut oil, I realized I was eating the wrong kinds of oil. Instead of going on another diet, I replaced the processed vegetable oils I was eating with coconut oil. I used butter instead of margarine, I ate fewer sweets and more fiber. I didn't reduce the amount of food I was eating, and I probably ate more calories than I had before because I began eating more fat in the form of coconut oil.
I ran out of hair conditioner and tried coconut oil. However, it is like an oil treatment and then I washed it out with shampoo. Hubby doesn't have too much hair, so we don't worry about hair conditioner or oil treatments for him.A strange thing happened. I didn't expect it to happen, and I didn't even notice it until months later. My pants were becoming looser. . . .I was shocked because I wasn't dieting. I wasn't trying to lose weight, I was just trying to eat healthier.
