 According to him, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil contains 117 calories. If the model Miranda Kerr told classmates regularly consume coconut oil 3-4 tablespoons / day, meaning he has added 468 calories out of a staple food it eats everyday.

"With that many calories, I would prefer to consume 1 ounce of dark chocolate. Nutritional profitable is much more than coconut oil and the result will be more satisfying," Ayoob said as quoted from ABCNews, Sunday (08/29/2011).

Not only that, coconut oil is also one source of saturated fat so it is not advisable to drink too many in number. That too much saturated fat will increase the Low Density Lipoprotein (LDL) also known as bad cholesterol.
