Although not a true ‘supplement’ coconut oil for the hCG diet, per Kevin Trudeau additions to the protocol is okay. It has weight loss properties and many health benefits due to its medium chain fatty acids that actually boost metabolism.
The fatty acids in coconut oil are processed in the liver and used for energy and not stored as easily as fat in your body.
Coconut oil and other MCT increase energy and actually help you burn a little more calories. Fats in your diet, especially the medium chain fats increase your feelings of fullness which leads to reducing in appetite and cravings for foods.

An amino acid that needed to produce serotonin in the brain. When your serotonin levels are low, you may feel depressed, anxious, experience insomnia, and causes you to overeat.
Specifically low serotonin cause you to overeat and crave carbs and binging on carbohydrates. When too many carbs are in the body and not utilized, they are eventually converted to fat and stored.
When on a VLCD like the hCG diet your tryptophan levels will decrease and this will produce intense cravings in response to the deficit of tryptophan thereby your serotonin levels are not at a deficit which would cause unbearable chronic carb cravings.

This should go without saying but I will say it anyway, DO NOT TAKE ANY SUPPLEMENT without checking with your doctor or pharmacist to see if it's compatible with any medications you are currently on.
Just because it an all natural supplement doesn't mean it's compatible with your medications. So please check before popping any pills.
There isn't a magic pill or potion to control cravings but these do come close to helping you fight the urges.
If you walk into your local grocery store and checkout you still have to make a decision to avoid buying the goodies they tempt you with.
These supplements to control your cravings my give you the extra edge, help chemical and nutritional imbalances but as stated you have to also help them by making the proper decision for your weight loss goals.
There is a great book on supplements, amino acids and their uses by Julia Ross 'The Diet Cure.' I often use her book as a reference and refer to it for a lot when it comes to natural 'cures.'
