Yes, you should include the cooking oil. You might try using less of it for cooking, just enough to keep the food from sticking to the pan.
I am using the same daily percentages, so far I am enjoying a clear, more focused mind with noticeably better mood. I am not on medication but struggle with stress and low-grade depression. I am using myself as a test because I would like my teenage son to try this to help with his ADHD and depression. He is currently on medications and I won't stop those without the doctor's consent, but there are side effects and he doesn't like taking them.
Like most kids, he generally eats a high-carb diet. He is not usually hungry in the mornings, but will drink a smoothie or hot chocolate. I'm going to start giving him a hot blended drink in the morning with a chocolate nutrition powder, warmed unsweetened almond milk, 2 tsp. coconut oil and 1 Tbl. grass-fed butter.
I've been drinking "Bulletproof coffee" in the mornings which is made with the coconut oil and butter. It fills me up and tastes delicious!
