More kilos with Coconut Oil: I have tried it for 10 days and today my weight was 2 or 3 kilos higher than the last time. Apart from the oil, I have been going to the gym every day, what is not working with me? How do people lose weight? are you also on a strict diet? PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks!

I tried the Coconut Oil to loose weight. I gained 10 pounds in 3 weeks. I work out regularly doing 4 days of carido and 3 days of weights. I changed nothing else in my healthy diet (no alcohol, no junkfood, low carbs) and I gained weight steadily over 3 weeks.

I also started taking EVCO to lose weight but gained weight instead, I have also never been this heavy. I stopped taking it but now I am stuck with the extra weight I gained.

I have been on VCO for 2 weeks. it at first made me have flu or food poison symptons, and a terrible lower back ache. I read this was just because it was detoxing my body. after that was over, I continued taking it. yes, it gave me engery and it helped with my IBS. but I have had to stop since I have GAINED a whopping 12 lbs. I thought this stuff was suppose to make you LOSE weight not GAIN! I have now stopped and I hope to be able to lose this weight. I have never been this big...I will no longer believe anything I read on the internet about any natural product.

I am currently on vco for the past 3 weeks. It is in tablet form. 9 pills per day before meals. My main only purpose is to lose weights but so far I didn't see any results.

I have gained 5 pounds using the VCO and ACV. What is up? I thought I would lose weight, but I have gained. I crave salty foods. Has anyone else experienced this?

My health was declining and substantial weight gain ( untreated border Hypothyroid 1991 )and culminated in stroke early 2006 at age 54, week in hospital at time of stroke my BP was 260/160, cholesterol 330, and high homocysteine. I started coconut oil this fall, mostly to increase energy but hoping it would help my sluggish metabolism to aid weight loss which has been erratic. I have had SAD each winter and this winter no sign of it, my energy is up but no significant weight loss. I'm on 4 meds so can't be sure the oil lowered cholesterol but it dropped another 92 pts since April testing to 101 total. My research showed that i must keep my total under 150 in order to start reversing the blockage I have in subclavian artery. My Cardiologist is amazed that I'm not dizzy or fainting b/c of my blockage being severe he said. I'm trying to ward off a stent and angioplasty. I must reduce my weight by 40 lbs before Dr will allow weaning off Plavix, Zocor, Benicar HCT and FLTX. I was started on 40 mg Benicar HCT the DAY BEFORE I stroked my dr allow me to reduce dosage if my BP is below 100, I have a BP cuff at home. Using it daily I have been able to cut back the Benicar to 1/4 Tablet. I want off all these pills within another year. I do believe I have improved my health with diet changes, exercise and reducing stress but as I said, dr's want to SEE proof of my changes via WEIGHT loss.
