Since the late 1950's, it's been drilled into us that fat is bad, saturated fat is worse, and tropical fats, like coconut and palm, are just about as near to poison as a food can be. However, a new and unprejudiced look at fat research over the last fifty years indicates that the opposite is true, and that saturated fats, and in particular coconut oil, are the healthiest fats you can eat. This diet will put you back on the track that nature intended for efficient nourishment. This is not a deprivational diet. Let go of the notion that you must suffer to lose weight. Starving yourself is counter-productive, as it signals the body to hold fat. Instead, eating sufficient quantities of the right combinations of fats (as outlined in the recipes and menu plans), you'll notice that you can go for several hours without eating, and without experiencing cravings because the body is satisfied and also has stable blood sugar levels. As a result, hunger pangs melt away, and eating sensibly becomes easy!
