Appetite Suppressant

January 21st, 2013 at 07:04 pm

Recently bought some coconut oil for hair, skin, general health and stumbled upon the weight loss side of it. I didn't think it would be effective but what do you know, it actually worked.

I took a spoonful of coconut oil along with 2 drumsticks, some kimchi and an apple. That was 6 hours ago and I'm still not hungry. Also feeling too energetic, which is nice since the fatigue that has been plaguing me is gone, but I really need to go to sleep early....

    How much do you think a spoonful is? A teaspoon, a tablespoon? I have some coconut oil and have heard about the weight loss benefits, too. Have you lost any weight or just noticing that the appetite is suppressed?

  2. PauletteGoddard Says:

    take 1 tablespoon a day for every 50 pounds you weigh.
    I should be taking 3 tablespoons a day. I take it with my morning coffee, you can use it in eggs or smoothies.

    Thanks Paulette...I've read that same amount before. Do you take yours plain and wash it down with coffee or mix in with your coffee? I have made my eggs with it, but not 3 TBS!

    I mix it in with the coffee... more palatable to me that way. I don't like it in tea so much, but use it when I remember to in green tea. I have a page on my SA blog about coconut oil. One tablespoon to be used in smoothies. You can also use coconut milk in rice and that counts as your coconut oil, and you can saute vegetables in coconut oil. I first learned to love coconut oil when we used it in homemade popcorn.

    The Oil Pulling page is what I meant by coconut oil, although better results have been reported with organic, unrefined, cold pressed oils sesame oil and sunflower oil, but the coconut oil can work too and helps remove the calculus from the teeth.

    Thanks, Paulette, I will check out your page!

    @creditcardfree: I was referring to the appetite. I took 1 tablespoon just to see what it was like.

  8. creditcardfree Says:

    Thanks, First! I think I did read one should build up the amount over time. Smile

    @PauletteGoddard: I thought the coconut milk is a lot more fattening and not as beneficial?

  10. PauletteGoddard Says:

    The calories in coconut milk I hadn't considered before, as I use it only for curries at dinner, so I did some Google-fu and found this: One can of coconut milk, used to make coconut rice, can make the entree calories total 450. If you have IBS, you may not find canned coconut milk to be your good friend. For the industrious, however, there are ways of getting milk from a coconut without opening a can.
    Thanks for the pointer!
