I have been taking a tablespoon of coconut oil three times daily with meals. Taking the oil with my meals seems to give me a “full feeling” a lot faster. My sweet tooth has practically vanished—and this is from someone who should have bought stock in Hershey’s long ago! Ironically, facilitating weight loss was my main reason for trying the coconut oil diet, but with all the wonderful benefits I am experiencing, the weight loss aspect almost seems like an afterthought. About three days into the routine, I had an energy rush on a Saturday morning that kept me going until well after lunch. I can’t believe how much I got done that day!
About two years ago, I bought some coconut oil for the promised benefits of better health and nutrition. At the time I was overweight, and I was on a self-willed regiment of better diet and exercise. Every Friday, after a hard workout at the gym, I would weigh myself and keep track of my progress. When I bought some coconut oil, I consumed about 2-3 tablespoons a day, and I kept track of my weight loss. Before I purchase the coconut oil, I lost about 1-2 lbs per week of diligent exercise and diet. Once I got the coconut oil, my weight loss went up to about 3-5 lbs average before I plateaued to my normal weight for my build.
Since beginning to use Tropical Traditions Virgin coconut oil, about 8 months ago, I have experienced a noticeable increase in my energy, rid myself of cravings for carbs, cleared up my complexion (which has always been a problem) gotten the silkiest, most glorious hair from using it internally AND lost 16 pounds. This oil does all that it promises, and more!
I haven’t been doing any extra exercises or anything special to “work on my abs” either.
At first I have to admit that I was a little worried about losing so much weight so quickly, but I felt fine, had lots of energy, and am still eating very well and sleeping well besides! In fact, the coconut oil seems to have increased my appetite, so even while I was losing weight I was eating more than usual. And even though I’m still eating more than usual, my weight is now staying steady; I’m not gaining.
My whole family loved VCO! Virgin Coconut Oil is indeed helpful in many ways. I have used it on my skin when it feels itchy or irritated and it heals instantly. My whole family used it and we all love this oil. It makes my skin feel lighter and not greasy.
Extra virgin coconut oil makes me beautiful. I’ve been using VCO as a facial and body moisturizer for about 5 months now and I can’t fully express how much I love it. I have put other skin-care products on my face before that was supposed to get rid of acne or wrinkles, but I just end up frustrated after a month of using it. However, I have not given up on VCO because it worked! I am not kidding, and it didn’t even take that long for me to see positive results. Only a couple of weeks of using it and I noticed that my face was so fresh. I recommend it to everyone.
Take extra virgin coconut oil regularly for 4 months and see amazing results. I have been taking coconut oil at least three times weekly since September 2011. It has changed my life because I have noticed increased brain function and increased energy level. My metabolism has gone up too, so I can eat fatty foods such as ice cream without having to bear the curse of a big belly after. I apply coconut oil on rashes, cuts and bruises. All in all, I can say that if you are still not using coconut oil, then you are missing out a lot! The best advice I can give is to take the coconut oil for more than 4 months and reap all its good health benefits.
I have been taking coconut oil daily for almost two years. At this time my consumption is 3 tablespoons per day. While I have been nutritionally minded most of my life, coconut oil somehow flew under my radar. When I finally heard about it I put it to the test. Many years ago (about 33!) I contracted genital herpes. As healthy as I was and still am, the condition persisted with occasional outbreaks that were physically painful and emotionally troubling. I am a believer in it and will continue to take it and tell people about it.
I have been having VCO for 2 years now always, buying it from you. Reaches me the 2nd day and is very competitively priced. Really good quality and stays fresh for a very long time. VCO has really helped my health by keeping weight in check in general and also healing my digestive system. My ulcerative colitis is healed!! I would not go a day without it. Just wanted to say Thank you and will keep on buying forever!
This oil has a wonderful scent and tastes delicious. Apart from using it to fry, you can also add a tablespoon to desserts, biscuits, cakes and pancakes for a coconut flavour. It also tastes delicious in coffee or tea!
