At LifeSense Products/KetoMCT we have always argued against consuming more than 2 tbsp of coconut oil per day (not ketogenic, and can raise LDL cholesterol), and always suggested a high healthy fat diet, not one which favors saturated fats over unsaturated ones.
The popularity of coconut keto diet is now waning. True C8/10 and particularly C8 MCT oil on the other hand does not raise LDL and total cholesterol and is a good addition to the low carb, high healthy fat lifestyle. How much MCT oil should be consumed per day? We recommend 2 tablespoons per day taken 4-6 hours apart.
Tom Sanders correctly points out that the growth and popularity of coconut oil came almost entirely from the marketing community, not the science community. The Pacific Islanders used to cook with coconut meat. Now that they cook with coconut oil, they have the worst rates of obesity in the world (other factors can be involved; Dr.Berger). In Kerala State in India, they widely consume coconut oil, and have the highest average blood cholesterol level in India (Gupta et al. 2017)
