Coconut oil

2 tbsps per day...said if you take it for awhile it's supposed to rev the thyroid and stimulate metabolism (helps you lose weight) Anyone had success long term with this? I have started cooking with it

98% of all cases of hypothyroidism in women (who have 96% of ALL thyroid disease) are autoimmune hypothyroidism (Hashimoto's). Meaning? The antibodies produced by the disease attack and destroy the entire function of the thyroid over time.

So...nothing revs a 'dead thyroid'...you can only 'replace the hormones' of the thyroid.

That being said, coconut oil is a great healthy oil, and if you are on a low carb plan and put in coconut oil...well, yes, you will most likely lose weight.

Fat is a good thing when the carbs are kept low and sugar in any form is kept out of the diet.
