Coconut oil can help you lose weight. When trying to lose weight people often try to knock out oil completely. However if you start having 2 teaspoons of coconut oil a day it clots together the fats in your body not allowing it to enter your system and store as fat. It also has other benefits; it reduces your risk of heart disease and other diseases, it helps those with diabetes, thyroid, chronic fatigue and best of all it boosts your daily energy.
