Default Saturated fat and heart disease

http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/274166.php

What does current research really say on the topic. I know eggs are now considered okay but in limited quantities. I've been cleaning up my diet it quite a bit but don't know how much saturated fat is really okay.

Heart disease is multi-factorial. 1/3rd of total fat as saturated fat within the context of other beahviors such as regular activity, being leanish, fruits, vegetables, etc. is fine.

I have one more question Why are people going crazy over coconut oil? The label shows that it is mostly saturated fat.

Well, it's mostly just kinda misinformation/misleading and hype I feel like, bandwagon, whatever you get it. I don't think it's really that nutritious of an oil. But it's anywhere from 50 to 60 percent MCT IIRC, and MCTs are pretty awesome and I don't really think they "count" as a saturated fat since they behave so different physiologically, and if you get the extra virgin stuff it has a neat coconutty flavor that goes nice with some foods.

Asprey says he uses a patented process to take purified water and mix in tiny droplets of “Bulletproof XCT Oil”: medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) derived from coconut oil. “The water looks kind of iridescent, pearlescent,” Asprey tells TIME. “It has these tiny, invisible droplets of fat that your body really, really likes.” FATwater can be bought bottled or in a concentrated gel that you mix with water yourself.

The hype: Asprey says FATwater is more hydrating than plain water because the nanoparticles of fat “bring the water into the cells more effectively.” He adds: “Drink a glass of water, and some of it will absorb and some of it won’t. But when your body sees that fat, it says, ‘Oh, come on in, this is pure energy.’ It brings the water in with the fat.”
