    In about an hour I read the book Coconut Oil for Beginners, and I honestly feel like it was the most productive and beneficial hour spent in a long time.  It turns out that tropical islanders are happier and have healthy tan skin for a reason!  Coconut oil blocks harmful rays from the sun when applied to the skin, and it decreases wrinkles and spots as well as moisturizes better than most products on the shelf.  I also plan to use the recipes for delicious dishes with coconut oil, because it has many health benefits from cognitive repair to weight loss and increased energy.  Virgin coconut oil is antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral and can be used for deodorant, dandruff relief, skin issues, and it even reduces stress!

    Coconut Oil for Beginners is definitely a three-for-one kind of deal. This health, beauty, and hair guide to coconut oil is a great way to start out when you don’t know much about the oil and its benefits. It talks about great ways to revitalize your skin and hair, as well as ways to get your body back into a healthier lifestyle. 

    Not only does it talk about the benefits of coconut oil, it also gives helpful tips on how to get more exercise into your busy work schedule, as well as a mini lesson in hydrogenated oils and fats, and why they’re not good for you. I recommend this book for people who are looking for a new, healthier diet while still getting to keep some of the foods they love.

    This is by far the best coconut oil book currently on the market. With an extensive section discussing the benefits and uses of coconut oil, it is truly a one-stop shop for everything coconut oil related. The book features an informative section discussing how coconut oil can help improve hair and skin, and also features a variety of recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A number of beverages are also featured in the recipes section, including smoothies, lattes, and teas, all of which include the use of coconut oil. The authors did an astounding job compiling all of the information and recipes one could ever possibly require regarding coconut oil into one convenient book.

    'Coconut Oil for Beginners ¿ Your Coconut Oil Miracle Guide: Hea

    'Coconut Oil for Beginners – Your Coconut Oil Miracle Guide: Health Cures, Beauty, Weight Loss, and Delicious Recipes' is a good reference book and keepsake for every home and kitchen. In this comprehensive guide the author provides ideas on using coconut oil for better health and weight loss.
    Natural recipes and beauty do-it-yourself applications showcase the myriad benefits of this remarkable oil.

    Researching the health benefits of coconut oil, a long varied list is compiled that reveals the curative and healing properties of coconut oil. Easy-to-understand scientific data explains how the good fats and nutrients in this miraculous oil stimulate our body’s ability to fight off disease. The book successfully debunks the myth about coconut oil being bad and high in saturated fat. A ready source of energy, coconut oil is anti-aging and reduces stress. It discusses at length the history of the miraculous oil explaining the mechanisms of science on how the lauric acid in coconut oil helps in fighting off diseases ranging from the simple cold to big diseases like Hepatitis and Herpes.

    To be honest, I came to ¿Coconut Oil for Beginners¿ as a skeptic

    To be honest, I came to “Coconut Oil for Beginners” as a skeptic, given the seemingly endless number of benefits claimed by this book and others regarding coconut oil. Well, I am now a convert, in large part due to “COFB” and the explanations and recipes it includes. After reading the book, it seems silly not to follow its advice. I’ve checked independently, and all the claims are legit – not to mention the fact that, without a scientific background, it’s cool to be able to speak intelligently about the differences between saturated fats, know the effects of certain chemicals on the epidermis, and offer tips and recipes on skin treatments (which, I have to say, scores big brownie points with the ladies). A top-notch book for those unfamiliar with coconut oil, and one that’s sure to have new ideas and recipes even for old pros.

    Coconut oil has arrived! Exactly as the title professes, this comprehensive book is just right for those of us who are interested in knowing all of the benefits of coconut oil and want to know why that’s a good thing (besides that it’s delicious). It tells all, from the history of the nut to easy-to-grasp explanations of its many healthful uses; it includes fun facts, tips, and a how-to purchase guide. The scientific explanations are easy to grasp (such as why it’s a “good fat”); I found them to-the-point, interesting and practical. It has lots of fun and delicious food as well as cosmetic recipes (my favorite). This is a cookbook and instructional guide all in one. I have some coconut oil in my pantry, but I can see now that I have underutilized it! Coconut...who knew?

    This book is great for anyone who is new to using coconut oil or for someone like me who has been using it for a few years but without knowing much about it. The book includes the history and science of coconut oil as well as health benefits and recipes. There were lots of good recipes that were different styles of food and the other sections were fun and easy to read.
