    Coconut oil is the world’s most weight loss friendly fat.
    It contains a unique combination of fatty acids with powerful effects on metabolism.

    wiserworld....There are plenty of claims from various sources which attest to positive weight loss results by consuming coconut oil, used in cooking or poured on salads & even simply swallowing a teaspoon full 2 to 3 times a day (no more than 2 tablespoons per 24 hrs.) 
    As to~if this is factual, authentic information, it would seem to me that each individual needs to discover this on their own, by trying a diet that includes coconut oil, used as suggested.
    While I always have coconut oil on hand, I use it mostly for cosmetic purposes, which I believe is  extremely useful, healthy & healing to our skin.  A few times I have also made a coconut chicken recipe which was YUMMY.  I have not however attempted to use this oil for weight loss.....mainly because my weight is A-OK.  ...For now.

    It is a laxative, though that makes the weight loss effect temporary.
