The clinical studies are saying that with a control taking none, a group taking other oil (I believe it was canola), and a group taking coconut oil, there was actual fat loss at the waist, and actual weight loss. Also anti-fungal and other such benefits. Saturated fats aren't what the governmental food organizations have said they were, though I haven't had enough time to go through all the research as yet. The medium chain nature of these saturated fats if nothing else is an important chemical component of it's health attributes compared to say, meat.
