Coconut oil is high in saturated fat, but newer studies suggest that vegetable saturated fats act differently than animal saturated fats. They seem to increase "good cholesterol" without increasing "bad cholesterol".

Coconut oil also contains medium chain fatty acids that occur only in dairy and tropical oils. Studies have found that foods containing medium chain fats are more satiating (filling you up sooner and satisfying hunger longer) than other fats
