    has anyone had success using coconut oil to lose weight(fat)?
    thanks


  2. Coconut oil is high in MCTs (about 70% IIRC). About 50% of MCTs bypass the kidney and are metabolized as energy rather than utilized for energy storage (fat). If you're doing a lot of cooking Coconut Oil is a good choice for cooking oil

  3. Coconut oil is great stuff.

  4. I have had great success with it and get a high quality one for cheap at Whole Foods by me. I bought 2 in late February, just finished my second "tub" of it this week. Great for pre-workout with protein when dieting.

  5. do you feel like it helped you drop some weight?
    thanks

    did it help you drop some pounds??

  7. Never used it for weight loss, but I do cook with it. I get LorAnns (sp?) at Walmart for under $5 for a good sized tub

  8. I don't use it for weight loss, more for some healthy calories. I honestly haven't placed an order without including some coconut oil .

  9. Problem is using it. It is just too much trouble

  10. trouble?
    how so?

  11. Coconut Oil does raise testosterone and the calories are not know to be stored as fat, so maybe not weight loss, but definitely helps with body recomposition.

    I think he means cause it is a solid at room temp and you have to slightly warm it, then tables spoon it out.

    In conjunction with a calorie controlled diet yes.

  24. thanks
    how much did you take per day?

  25. 1 to 2 tablespoons a day is a good measure. you can do more if you want, just make sure to count the extra calories if you are trying to lose weight. I usually scramble eggs with it or use it anytime I fry anything in a pan. also a very good moisturizer.
