Miranda Kerr Makes Sales Of Coconut Oil Skyrocket — Would You Slurp Up Oil Because Miranda Does?

Miranda told Australian ‘Cosmopolitan’ magazine months ago that she drinks plenty of coconut oil throughout the day and now everyone wants to get their hands on the fatty liquid.

Miranda Kerr explained how she consumes so much coconut oil, saying, “I will not go a day without coconut oil. I personally take four tablespoons per day, either on my salads, in my cooking or in my cups of green tea.” Since then, the Daily Mail reports that sales of the oil at a popular grocery store chain have increased by 50 percent!

Do you think this is a great celebrity tip or just a fad? Have you run out to buy coconut oil since hearing that Miranda consumes it by the spoonful? Sound off, HollywoodLifers!

Miranda Kerr’s habit of drinking coconut oil should not be emulated by anyone. I had an angioplasty in 1994 due to high cholesterol. After this I decided to do some research into oils, as I previously thought they were all the same. It turns out that the worst oils, worse than animal fat, are the oils from the kernels of tropical fruit, and coconut is the worst of the worst. Cocoa butter, the stuff they use to make chocolate bars, and white chocolate, is pretty bad, but if you have dark chocolate you are reducing that. Palm oil is bad, but many fast food outlets use it because it is cheap. Here in the Philippines, all the locally-produced margarines and vegetable oils are either made with coconut or palm oil, but because the government runs the Coconut Marketing Board they are not going to advertise its bad effects. If you rub it into your skin, remember that 60% gets absorbed into your blood stream. Before my operation I used to love coconut. My wife was also making confections for me made from copha, which I didn’t find out until years later was made from coconut oil. There was one quack in Brisbane trying to promote coconut oil as being healthy on the basis that you can leave a bowl of it out on a table for a year and it will not go off. Actually, the more an oil rancidises (oxidises) the better it is for you. Linseed oil is the best, but being expensive, olive or canola oil is good enough for daily use.

Coconut oil bad for you? Try telling that to the Polynesians who lived on it for centuries and enjoyed excellent health with no heart disease. Then tell the Inuits that their diet rich in whale and seal fat is bad for them even though they have low cholesterol. Then tell the people of Gascony to stop eating their duck fat even though they have the longest lifespans of all Europe.
