If you're OK with dairy there's always butter and ghee.  Seek out butter from pastured dairy sources to maximize Omega 3's.  Butter has some MCT's but not in the same concentrations as coconut oil.

If you're looking for another cooking oil avocado oil might be a good choice.  Palm oil from sustainable sources could be another.  They probably wouldn't sell the latter at a health food store though.  You'd have to order it I think.

For now, stop eating coconut products.  Then work with a "real-foods" RD or an ND (more expensive) to figure out the underlying reason.

Only 1 tablespoon associated with coconut oil has in excess of 13 grams of fat. Coconut oil has the greatest condensed extra fat regarding any oil.

One way to get some benefits from coconut oil is to apply it on your skin rather than having in your food.
