A couple of weeks ago, i stumbled on to this post about coconut oil. I talked three friends into adding coconut oil into their diet. Yesterday, I stopped to visit one friend who wasn't sure, but his skinny jeans were't skinny anymore. Then this morning, a friend in Chicago who added coconut oil noticed his skin is not so dry in the cold winter air and he's dropped three pounds. Hopefully I'll get an update tomorrow from the third participant. Any ladies willing to experiment...read the article first...the author's anectodal results are near the end.
