It’s the only cooking oil I use, and I also eat it straight off the spoon. It’s mostly cool enough where I am that my coconut oil stays solid or semi-solid. I have also added some to hot herbal tea, since the flavor is so mild.
I don’t remember exact amounts, but if you haven’t had any yet, probably take a couple of teaspoons the first few days to see how much die-off it gives you before adding any more. Coconut oil is a really powerful antifungal, so taking too much too soon can be a real kick in the face. You’ll want to gradually work up to approximately 4 tablespoons a day, over the course of a few weeks. Always back off if your die-off seems too intense — you don’t want to hurt your liver or kidneys. You shouldn’t start coconut oil (or any antifungals) until you’ve been on molybdenum amino acid chelate for a few days.
