coconut oil can help you lose weight

I did a lot of readings about coconut oil that can actually help you lose weight. There's some website that have great sources of information regarding coconut oil and its link to weight loss. I know some people who have lost weight using CO in their diet.

I started CO couple days ago. I use it for cooking and mixing it in juices/shakes

I'll keep you posted.

Re: coconut oil can help you lose weight

Please do.

I read in a issue of womans day that said you should have CO because it lowers your PH levels. Im very interested in the topic.

Re: coconut oil can help you lose weight

so far, im doing really well.. Its been 6 days.. I havent checked my weight yet. I have been exercising everyday. I feel a lot better and have toned up a little bit.

I have seen more articles about CO in health magazines recently and it talks about the health benefits as well as weight loss.

There is ( removed ) that you should look up, it has great information sources.

Re: coconut oil can help you lose weight

omg thats so fattening and unhealthy!

just my opinion i suppose.. i dont advocate the use of oils i prefer the consumption of complex carbs & if anything...soybean oil as a last resort & i'm losing pretty quickly..

Re: coconut oil can help you lose weight

oh no no no! It is NOT bad for you! CO is like olive oil or avocados--they may be higher in fat but its all GOOD fat. And its in moderate amounts like a tablespoon or two a day. thats better then consuming hundreds of calories and fat from bagels or beef. Beef is the worst for you. Oils are very good for you, but in moderation. The complex carbs are very good too. Im shying away SLOWLY from the refined sugars. Anyways, please keep us posted and maybe share your weight if you would like to? It may not lose the weight for you, but if it helps I may want to go out to buy it even though I HATE CO! LOL thanks!

Re: coconut oil can help you lose weight

Coconut oil supplementation is SUCH a rotten idea...fattening and saturated.

What it shows is that with proper advertising ANYTHING can be sold.

Re: coconut oil can help you lose weight

Coconut oil is a medium density oil and necessary for many metabolic functions. Don't be caught up in the hype that all oils are "bad" for you, they are essential for metabolic functions. Go to the medical websites and read the actual research papers before you decide anything is good or bad. Remember when eggs, peanutbutter and applejuice were "bad"?

Re: coconut oil can help you lose weight

Changingwoman is right...

I haven't had a single problem since taking cocounut oil and i take less than 3 tablespoon per day whether in my juice or cooking..

So far, i have lost 2lbs and i feel great!!

I also use it as a body oil too, and my skin feels great.

Re: coconut oil can help you lose weight

I read in an article not too long ago that there are benefits of taking CO. However, I read that you should not use it for cooking, because when it is heated it becomes toxic! Don't know if that is true or not, but I wouldn't risk it. Just stick with it for salads and juices and stuff.

Re: coconut oil can help you lose weight

Actually you can cook with it.. its safe. It does not become toxic but it does make my food taste better.

So far, my skin looks great..

Re: coconut oil can help you lose weight

Coconut oil is very good for you and has amazing health benifets as well as weight loss. I always talk about it in these message boards however, what kind of coconut oil are you buying? is it organic virgin coconut oil?Certified organic, USDA standards

No refining

No chemicals added

No bleaching

No deodorization

No hydrogenation

Non-GMO

Coconuts from traditional palms only -- no hybrid varieties

From fresh coconuts, not the dried "copra" used in most coconut oils

Low-level heated only -- does not damage nutrients

because if not your not going to get the health benifets out of it. Especially if its bought from a grocery store

Re: coconut oil can help you lose weight

The one I used is from a local health food store.

Its 100% organic, raw, unrefined coconut oil. Just make sure you read the labels and if you have to check it online, do ur research.

I prefer to buy it from health food store than a regular grocery store. They have variety to choose from.

You can cook with it. I put couple of tablespoon in my orange juice and drink it. No funny taste. I put it in my fruit smoothie as well.

Instead of olive oil, use coconut oil.
