Hello, I would like to share my experience as I too found this valuable online through online reviews...which changed my weight loss experience woohoo! I have always struggled with being overweight since childhood, and being a yo-yo dieter managed to lose weight but always gained it all back...even though I'd go to the gym sometimes.

I'm in my 20s and decided to begin a healthy lifestyle, been watching meal portions and doing some walking every day...but beyond a few kilos, couldn't seem to lose much weight...i still felt pudgy around my arms and stomach. I though there's nothing more to lose, and things can't get worse...so I followed a friend's advice and started having 1 tablespoon COLD PRESSED VIRGIN COCONUT OIL every morning with my coffee, soon after I wake up. Continued 1 hour walks every second day, and watching meal portions (no sugar, less of bread/rice and more of greens, meat, fish). Within a week, my family noticed I was looking slimmer..and I had changed nothing except started taking coconut oil...

I was super enthused with the results and continued the early morning ritual for 2 months now...and I don't feel cravings to eat junk...feel great and energised, motivated to exercise as I can actually see results now. I'm 100% confident the coconut oil has helped boost my metabolism, and it's amazing! I would recommend everyone to try having 1 tbsp coconut oil with their tea/ coffee in the mornings...it's natural and nutrient-rich. Due to marketing, we usually believe more in artificial, processed protein shakes but are doubtful of natural foods like coconut oil. Try it and believe me, your life will change

Thanks!!

Coconut oil for weight loss: I found this to be very active, as I have tried this for several months now because I gained a lot of weight. My Dr. says my levels are very high and too much weight gain too fast. This is an all around cure. I wish every one the very best.

I took a mere tablespoon of organic extra virgin coconut oil for a week and lost about 5 pounds - with NO other remedies or treatments or meds going on. I was a little worried and couldn't figure out why I was detoxing and losing weight (since I didn't take the oil to lose weight, obviously) and I did a quick search online and found out that coconut oil does indeed help your overall health and wellness. it is a definate keeper in this household and tempers out the thyroid quite effectively.

I have been a carbohydrate binge eater most of my 39 years. It has been SO much worse in the last few years... So bad I have been considering therapy. I have taken 1 TB of coconut oil for the past 2 days.... It has 100% taken away all cravings. This is the only thing that has ever allowed me to make the healthy food choices consistently that I have wanted to do for so long. I will update shortly, but I feel I am 'cured' :)

I eat a slice of toast with a table spoon of coconut oil every morning for breakfast and weight is slowly but steadily going down. I put a dash of lemon or lime and a sprinkle of salt on it, to give it a fresher taste. Coconut oil for weightloss works for me, I have not changed diet or lifestyle.

Coconut oil for weight loss

Hi, I just want to add to the number! I have a big YEA for coconut oil! I took 1 TBS everyday, for the most part, from Jan. '10 to May '10 and lost close to 40 pounds!! I stopped taking it to see if I would start gaining weight again, but I have maintained! I do not diet or exercise regularly as I should, either! I am going back on it to lose 20 more. I also noticed my asthma and circulation greatly improved, so much that I was able to go off of my steriod inhaler during the worst time of the year, and it cured thrush in both my baby and me!

I've been taking VCO first thing in the morning (1tsp) and 1 tsp at around 1:30 in the afternoon which followed with some some warm tea. Sometimes when I'm hungry I will just have a 1/4-1/2 tsp of VCO. When I first started this I felt a little sick from it but I believe that this was detoxification process, so I stepped up my steam/sauna time and drank more water and tea. Sometimes I will put some VCO fruit berry smoothie. I've noticed my cravings have vanished, and my consumption of food has gone down. My skin is clear. My energy is up. My eyes are no longer red they are now clear and white. I also started using it as an all over body lotion my cellulite is gone. I use a very, very small amount on my face it is nice, and makes my skin super soft and clear. I've FINALLY lost the stubborn 10 pounds.

I take a 1 tsp to 1/2 tbl of virgin organic coconut oil daily and it has definitely decreased my appetite. From the 1st day forward there was a noticeable difference in how much I ate. And further evidence is if I skip a day, I will snack more that day. It is truly remarkable. I still eat 3 good quality meals a day and exercise 3 times a week, I just don't partake in needless boredom snacking anymore. Plus coconut oil is a good all around beauty/health investment as it works for so many things. Give it a shot...start small (1/8 tsp.) and work up to whatever you are comfortable taking for your body weight. And melt it, don't take it solid...yuck! Good luck, you won't regret trying it...it's a miracle product.

So happy to have found this forum. The info is invaluable. I hope some doctors out there are using it to help their patients!!! Since suffering with lupus for 15 years and now in remission for last 15, I have virtually given up on medical advice and protocol. Like many of you reading this, I try to find my own answers to my health problems.

About three weeks ago, I started using extra virgin coconut oil to jumpstart stalled weight loss and possible hypothyroid. Have been eating low carb for many years and after reading many posts now realize I was not eating enough good fats, therefore decided to try coconut oil . I started out taking the 2tbs. before each meal and gained a little. Now I am taking only 1tbs. before each meal and the newly gained pounds have come off and I am hoping to lose more with this regime. I am less hungry, no cravings, mood is better, bowels better, and temp is up a little.

I think if you are going to try coconut oil for weight loss you must watch out for the increase in calories and adjust your diet to accommodate it. I working on this. Already giving up sugar and white foods (low carb) has helped my health immensely. Hoping to see an even greater impact with the extra virgin coconut oil . Today, I just added some ACV to my daily water intake -- 1/2 tsp. in 32 ounce glass -- tastes great!

Good luck to all!

I took coconut oil for weight loss for 2 to 3 months and I lost up to 20 pounds. I lost the first 12 pounds in the first 2 weeks of taking it. It works well for blood pressure too as well as hair growth.

I read about coconut oil on Earth Clinic, for weight loss, and started trying it 3 months ago. I only take 1TBS a day, but in the beginning was taking 2 and 3 TBS. I have lost 20 pounds, without any trouble. It seems to have also cut my appetite. Every one notices the drop in my weight, and I feel so much better, and have more energy. I keep the jar on top of my gas stove, and the pilot keeps it in liquid form. I can not get it down in it's thick form. I also put it in my smoothies. I put some on my face before make up, and my skin is nice and soft. Thank you so much to those who gave this suggestion.

Coconut oil helped me to lose weight. Taking one table spoon three times a day before meals, helped me feel full faster, stop me from eating between meals and stopped my cravings for sweets. Wonderful when used as body lotion. Coconut oils also helps fight yeast infections. Taking pure coconut oil regularly also helped me to reduce recurring yeast infections and cramps.

Extra virgin coconut oil is the only thing that cured my acid reflux. I tried everything including tums and apple cider vinegar. The only side effect is that you will drop about 10 pounds in a month and I think the majority of people might like that. It's been about three weeks since I've taken the coconut oil and so far no sign of the acid reflux.
