  1. Hi so reading your comments. Rubbing it on will not help but eating it will lose belly fat or drop pounds. But do I put coconut oil in everything I eat? And how coconut oil do I put in my food?

  2. Hello,
    6 weeks ago I started taking Nutiva refined coconut oil (solid at room temp variety) as a diet addition after hearing great results from friends. The dose was too large, 2T/day, and I quit after 4 days because of very loose stools. Then it turned into full-blown diarrhea a week later which I've had for 3+ weeks (along with some bloating, rumbling gut, no abdominal pain, ongoing headaches and nausea) and can't seem to get rid of it. No other diet changes and I had bowel samples checked with no bacteria present, so I'm thinking it has to be the coconut oil. Any advice on getting rid of the diarrhea?

    • Hi Lynn, this is very unusual. You got a full-blown diarrhea after stopping coconut oil for a week. And it persists for 3+ weeks and during this period you have not had a drop of coconut oil.

      Seriously, the diarrhea effect of coconut oil should have long worn off with the bowel movements 1 or 2 days after you quit. I'm afraid you'll need to do a full body check-up and see what actually has happened to you.

  3. I am SO glad I found your blog post!! My doctor says my constipation issues are due to a weak rectocel, but after reading every single comment I realize meat plays a big role in this -- for me. I just made a smoothie with protein powder, almond milk, water, and coconut oil. Good thing today is Saturday so I can stick close to home and see what happens! I've had constipation/fissure/hemorrhoid issues FOR YEARS but I am going to really pay attention to what I am or am not eating. Oh, and I agree with the person who said you can use coconut oil on your bum after a movement. It does provide relief.

  4. I like to get up early in the morning have warm water and melt the coconut oil along with juice of a key lime and hit the morning cardio on a fasted state..the coconut oil gives me that instant energy and helps me burn fat keeping my stomach flat it is amazing..and my stools become soft easy and quick to pass
