    I am wondering if and how many calories are in castor oil?

    Oil has about 9 calories per gram.

    Why would you take castor oil? It's fairly toxic.

    Simple Google search (learn to love Google my friend) that castor oil has about 115-120 calories per tablespoon like most vegetable-based oils do.

    However, it is a very potent laxative substance, so use with caution!

    Isn't it a trash oil?
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I'm not sure of the fat make-up of castor oil, but given that many physicians consider it poisonous if used on a regular basis, I'd consider it junk and personally avoid consuming it at all.
