For those of you who cook your meat in bulk, it can be difficult to hit the prescribed amount of coconut oil.
For example, I had a client who was on a diet plan with just 200 grams of chicken breast per day.
He would cook 1 KG of chicken breast at a time for 5 days, but his prescribed coconut oil intake for this chicken was 10 table spoons!
From a practical perspective it doesn’t make sense to cook 1 KG of chicken in 10 table spoons of coconut oil, so he just kept cooking it in 2 table spoons as he was prescribed to do on a daily basis.
Then it hit him that by doing so, he was missing out on 1.5 of table spoons of coconut oil per day, and thereby missed out on more than 200 calories per day!
1.5 table spoon is (15 * 1.5 = 22.5 grams).
100 grams of coconut oil contains 900 calories, since coconut is pure fat and fat contains 9 calories per gram.
Therefore, when you miss out on 22.5 grams of coconut oil, your calories are reduced by (9 calories x 22.5 = 202.5 calories), and your current calorie goal is around 1600, thereby putting you at below 1400 when you miss the 1.5 table spoon of coconut oil.
