I measure out a couple of ounces of coconut oil into a 4 oz mason jar and keep it in a warm place, then take it as a liquid off a teaspoon when I want it. I had issues with gagging in the past when trying to eat solid coconut oil, and I have no issues with this. But perhaps the reason I had trouble with it in the past could have been that it might not have been entirely fresh.
I can no longer consume coconut oil on its own since it tastes like a bunch of rancid shit. I used to buy Sprouts coconut oil, but even that has deteriorated in quality since it first came out. I think it's a lot better to consume something less processed to blunt hunger....coconut oil = potato flour = whey powder = organic ketchup. Is it extracted from natural food? Yes. Can you use it when in a bind or to aid you in your cooking for processes that would otherwise take you forever to make? Sure. Should it be the center of your meal/snack as a source of real nutrition? Highly doubtful.
