I thought the coconut oil would have too much flavor but I really didn't think it had any. I had thought to try to swallow it with a glass of water like a big pill but it was too big and I was afraid I might choke. Then it just started dissolving so I swallowed it before I could taste anything and gag. It has a smell when I cook with it but eating cold coconut oil didn't have any taste at all.
I think I now understand why the first container of coconut oil I ever bought said it was for a supplement. I have heard of the Shangri-la diet before but never knew what it was. They've probably been selling coconut oil for this purpose for a long time.
I have wondered if you could take macadamia nuts like pills since they are mostly fat and about the right size for swallowing. And hell, wouldn't taking lots of fish oil tablets work, too? They had fish oil at the 99¢ Only store the other day.
