"Use nature's elixir to lose weight, prevent heart disease, cancer, and diabetes, and beautify skin and hair. Can saturated fat be good for you? Natural coconut oil-not the hydrogenated version often found in processed foods-is a saturated fat, but not the kind your doctor has warned you about. Studies have shown that this uniquely curative oil actually has innumerable health benefits ranging from disease prevention to anti-aging. Now, in his revised edition of the first book to describe the therapeutic properties of coconut oil, Bruce Fife offers a nutrition plan with dozens of tasty recipes that will allow anyone to experience the healing miracles of what he deems the "perfect food." When taken as a supplement, used in cooking, or applied to directly to the skin, coconut oil has been found to: - Promote weight loss - Help protect against heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, and many other degenerative diseases - Strengthen the immune system - Improve digestion - Prevent premature aging of the skin"
- Great Resource
Enjoyed this book and learning about the benefits of coconut oil in the diet. Always enjoy case histories and personal testimonies and would have like more in this book, but all-in-all, a good resource....more info
- Better Organization of Info would have Really Helped
This is a good book with lots of info on coconut oil and how to use it for health and beauty... I would have preferred it to be organized in ailments though.
For instance, title of th ailment: THINNING HAIR and then recipes or prescription on how to use coconut oil to fix that. (this book does have that for Cancer and Diabetes, etc. but I would have liked a quick list with quick info on each as well).
Very helpful though, wonderful recipes! look tasty!
- Coconut oil is OK!
This informative and educational book debunks the myths about coconut oil, and teaches how coconut oil is very, very good for you. Includes recipes....more info
- Informative book!
This is the first book I read on Coconut Oil, and I thought it was very informative....more info
- Outstanding Book
This is an outstanding book and a must read for everyone who is concerned about the food they take. The book gives 185 research references and makes a convincing case for coconut products.
It also explains how oils like canola etc have been "promoted" as healthy oils.
- Very informative and easy read!
This is a great book. It gets scientific enough so that you understand and believe the miracle that is coconut oil, but not so scientific as to frustrate or bore the reader. I read this book in one sitting and although i had cooked with coconut oil before, on advice from a nutritionist, i had never known about the applications for skin and hair. My skin has never been so happy! It's infuriating how we've been lied to by the criminal agribusinesses in this country. While reading this book, I kept thinking to myself why doesnt everyone know this?!?! Hopefully word can spread about this book and the miracle of the coconut!
- Interesting Book
Inspiring and offers coconut oil as a natural, affordable and good-tasting possible cure for many ailments and diseases. A very quick read with quite a few pages used up for recipes (some so simple they're unnecessary). My one disappointment in this book is it does not caution you that taking in the recommended amount can also result in diarrhea and vomiting. I speak from experience. Before I read the book, I had been taking in a lesser daily amount and was fine. After reading the book, I upped my intake and had two bouts of this "cleansing" experience. I told my husband "I think it's the coconut oil." Then he said he read that the ancient Hawaiians used coconut oil as a remedy for constipation. Well, folks, let me tell you it works!...more info
- My arteries are clogged - with misinformation!
Unfortunately there are only a handful of doctors and health professionals exposing all the myths and total nonsense that gets delivered to us through the media. I still see articles in magazines by doctors telling me how bad coconut oil is and how it clogs my arteries. I have used coconut oil for a year now and feel great. I like to mix virgin organic coconut oil into my organic peanut butter to smooth it up. Makes it taste great! I melt it on my veggies and cook with it exclusively and yet I am fit as a a fiddle. So where are the reviews from the people who consistently consume coconut oil and have clogged arteries? Anybody??? I didn't think so!...more info
- Everyone should know about coconut oil!
Bruce Fife does a phenomenal job of explaining about coconut oil and why it's good for you. Read all of his coconut books!...more info

- Nuts about coconuts
If you've always suspected that coconuts are good for you because so many people have been eating them for so long with only positive health outcomes then you're right!!!
What you probably don't know is exactly why they're good for you.
You probably don't suspect exactly how many things coconuts are good for either.
This book is easy to read, explains things in fairly simple language and repeats things regularly so you will remember.
It's full of information about things like: losing weight, keloid scarring, diabetes, the immune system (anti-bacterial, anti-viral), beauty, cancer & heart disease! That's the short list. Most came as a total surprise.
It helped pull together a lot of information on fats in a relatively coherent fashion.
Dr Mary Enig's book on oils (including coconut) however is the definitive work in fats. She is quoted a lot in this book (and by other authors writing about oils). However Mary's book is a bit harder to read. The devil is in the detail... and Mary has a lot of useful detail.
An in depth list of trace minerals in the coconut would have been nice. They only have what appears to be an abbreviated list. It's also unclear which vitamins if any exist in coconut.
A comparison of the differences between cold pressed and heat extracted coconut would have been nice... there's very little detail about this in any book about fats... so we assume we lose some "stuff" but exactly what and how much?
- great info--eye opening
I very much enjoyed reading this book. Much information is given on the health benefits (yes BENEFITS) of saturated fats, the "smear" campaign of the vegetable oil industry, and practical application of coconut oil for many health problems. Coconut oil DEFINITELY helps me to eat less and have more energy. It took a couple of days for it to kick in, but now when I eat a meal with 1 T of coconut oil, I don't have to eat for HOURS, where previously, I felt compelled to eat every 2 hours--and thus, overeating. The coconut oil is keeping me healthy; it eliminated a sinus infection much quicker than antibiotics, without the side effects. Please look into this book--it can seriously improve your health....more info
- It is often the lone voices that are the right ones to listen to...
I was angered by this book. That is, at the soybean and vegetable oil industry, pharmaceutical companies and the medical establishment. I've never been big into conspiracy theories, but after reading this I was shocked. I went out and bought 2 tubs of coconut oil and I've been telling everyone I can about it and this book. I know and am close to people with heart disease, diabetes, lupus, IBS, and cancer. Even if you are not sick, coconut oil is beneficial in preventing disease and promoting overall wellness. I have started reading ingredient labels at the grocery store and it's amazing how prevalent vegetable and soybean oil is in the foods people eat. It doesn't make sense to me why the big businesses say that something Nature put on this earth for us to use would be so bad for us, while the over-processed, refined and rancid veg and soy oils are so much better. Oh, wait, I know the reason: money. ...more info
- and weight loss to boot!
There is not much to be added to all the other good reviews here...
I found the book very interesting and easy to read, and have enjoyed many of the recipes within. Have completely eliminated all other fat sources from my diet except occasional olive or grapeseed oil. I love the oil in my oatmeal, and use the coconut milk in smoothies. Very yummy.
I have not been sick in nearly a year (since starting use) and the biggest surprise is a steady, consistent weight loss of nearly 20 pounds with virtually no other changes to my diet (fairly healthy to begin with). Also helped clear up some skin problems. Be sure to buy the cold pressed virgin oil, which can be found in bulk at a very good price right here on amazon. We use Nutiva, but another good brand is Spectrum.
Happy eating....more info
- Excellent Information
I read through pretty much all of the reviews on here before purchasing this book and I have to say that it lived up to my expectations.
Fife gives a great account of HOW exactly coconut oil is good for, chemically speaking. He presented the info in a very clear and logical manner for those us not scientifically minded. I also did further research on my own regarding coconut oil and after everything I've read, I'd be CRAZY not to try using it. I do like how there were recipes included in the back of the book as well - a good variety but very limited. They are worth a shot though so I'm glad there's something there to begin with. I will also most likely buy his Cooking with Coconut Flour book as well....more info
- The Healing Miracles of Coconut Oil
I have suffered with digestive problems my entire life. After reading this book and incorporating coconut oil and coconut milk into my diet, I am finally recovering! It truly does seem to be "too good to be true", but in fact, coconut oil, is a miraculous food for this generation. It is very easy to switch from vegetable oils to coconut oil in all recipes. My family loves the change, and we are now enjoying wonderful smoothies and creamed soups that were "forbidden" because of the high fat content. But, switch to healthy fats and see what happens! A side benefit I am seeing is weight reduction without even trying! This book is a MUST for those who desire to regain their health and protect the health of their children....more info
- Truly a miracle
If you are having trouble losing weight or if you have had your gallbladder removed, or know someone who has, then you must read this book or buy it for them for a gift.
I had my gallbladder out at a young age and I've always had trouble since then with oils. Now I know why since this book goes into great depth in explaining how oils are utilized by the human body.
I have suffered from chronic candida infestations for years, thanks to this book, I'm now getting the yeast outbreaks under control and finally have hope of eliminating them for good. I saw immediate relief of my pollen related allergies after the first day of using coconut milk on my morning cereal. I highly recommend this book....more info
