I'm a fan of coconut oil too. I started out using it for my hair and skin but a few weeks ago I started using it as an appetite suppressant. I take two teaspoons of it every morning when I wake up. I admit it took a bit to get used to the consistency of it. The taste isn't bad if you like coconut but the texture is like eating a big glob of butter. It made me gag the first few times I swallowed it. Now I'm sure to have a glass of water handy when I take it. After the first few days of taking it I was surprised by how well it worked as an appetite suppressant. One day I nearly forgot to eat until someone reminded me I hadn't eaten anything yet. I went the whole day without feeling hungry at all.
