American Heart Association says Coconut Oil is BAD

AHA says coconut oil is bad for you...

The American Heart Association has recently come out with a report saying that coconut oil has never been and never will be healthy. I made this video in my car because I couldn’t wait another moment to get the word out.

There is a new story that everyone is asking me for my opinion on. The American Heart Association has just released that coconut oil has never been or will ever be healthy. I have such a hard time with reports like this because there’s no science to back it up, only agenda. So, when I’m faced with stories like this I have to go to the facts.

Facts number one: HDL cholesterol is increased by eating saturated fat (of course the quality of the fat matters).

Fact number two: HDL over triglyceride is a better indicator of heart health.

Fact number three: coconut oil LOWERS triglycerides and increases HDL. Two things we want.

Fact number four: The American Heart Association promotes the use of vegetable oils.

Fact number five: it is been proven time and time again the vegetable oils are so inflammatory and horrible for your health.

Fact number six: there’s something wrong when someone promotes vegetable oils and says coconut oil is unhealthy…

I’ll be turning the other way on this one and ignore this crazy news story.

  1. Your willingness to share your experiences and opinions while “living life beyond the brainwashing” is much appreciated, Leanne.
    It takes people like us that are dedicated toward ciphening through this brainwashing and simply making informed decisions based on what nature intended. When we remove the crap, our bodies become a marvelous guide on what is “good” or “bad” for us. Not what some organization backed by another money hungry organization says.

    People always have a choice whether to listen or not. But for those of us who choose to live life to its fullest, on OUR terms, and with what has clearly been working in our bodies… keep up the work you’re doing here. People need to hear this.
    Big hug & high five to you!
    Ps
    I’d totally love to do an interview with you sometime! ;-)

    • So so true! Listening to your body is absolutely key. Thanks so much for your support, Natalie! I will keep on keepin’ on ;)

      Yeah? Feel free to message my team with more info and we’ll see if we can make it happen!

  2. Thank you for posting this. What bothers me about this type of news is that it is always implied that high LDL is the only indicator of heart disease and that saturated fat is the only thing that raises LDL, which both is not true. So its misleading for the general public. I wish they would promote less sugar and less carbs instead, telling the public that those things also raises your LDL. But that is never stated.

    PS, I eat coconut oil every day and just got blood work done and my numbers look fine. I never eat vegetable oils.

  3. People need to consider the entities paying for these studies/research….

  4. you are the best. I will post this on fitadelphia.com…my blog. Thank you so much. I am also a researcher and wrote a book What’s Eating You Kid? and recommend coconut oil also. You are the best!
